From wikipedia:

"A tag is a non-hierarchical keyword or term assigned to a piece of information (such as an internet bookmark, digital image, or computer file). This kind of metadata helps describe an item and allows it to be found again by browsing or searching. Tags are chosen informally and personally by the item's creator or by its viewer, depending on the system. On a website in which many users tag many items, this collection of tags becomes a folksonomy."

To sum it up, tagging is like catagories, but not fixed. You can created a new catagories simply by typing it in!

When you upload an item in our gallery, or edit an item, you can now enter new tag to any of your items, simply fill up the "Tags" field, Either seperated by line, or by comma! Space is allowed! For example, you can enters a list like this:

Rainbow Dash
Original Character

And you can see an example of the result here.

A few things to remember:

  • You should always enter Non-Pony if the item is considered off topic.
  • Always enters pony type if possible!  Examples: Pegasus, Unicorn... (if more then one!)... etc
  • Enters species. Examples: Dragon, Monster, Dog, etc
  • Other tags are optional, but welcome! The more the merrier! Examples: Flying, Color, Hat, weather... etc. I'm sure you can think of many!
  • We have a few different Type of tags, Regular, Character, Copyright, Artist, Ambiguous and Species. They are divided by color.
  • For more information on how you can help add tags to any item, check Tags Approval page.
