Namespaces are designations for tags indicating their purpose. They are of particular usefulness when a tag would have multiple meanings, such as being the name of both an artist and a character.
Tagging With Namespaces
For any tag that exists within a given namespace, inputting that tag prefixed by namespace: will tag it under that namespace. If example is an artist, inputting artist:example (or a:example) will tag example in the artist namespace. If no namespace is provided the "miscellaneous" namespace is used by default; no prefix is necessary.
Each namespace also has one or more alternatives which may be used in place of the full namespace designation.
Defaults and Forced Prefixes
Any tag that is only used in one namespace is defaulted to that namespace. Such tags do not require a prefix in order to tag them; simply entering the tag without a namespace prefix will cause it to automatically be tagged in its default namespace. Example: english only exists in the language namespace and can be tagged without the language: prefix.
Tags that have uses in multiple namespaces are not taggable without the explicit use of a namespace prefix. Example: sailor moon can be either a character or a parody; users are required to explicitly enter character:sailor moon to tag the character or parody:sailor moon to tag the series.
All namespaces except the misc namespace are restricted. Regular users are only allowed to use tags that already exist within that namespace. New assignments to namespaces may only be added by tag moderators.
If sometag is not in the artist namespace and the user tries to tag artist:sometag the action will be rejected. If sometag is a valid artist the user may tag it in the misc namespace (requires 25 power; skip this step if this is not possible) and visit this thread to request a tag moderator assign sometag to the artist namespace.
- Tag "a:mario" for the artist; tag "c:mario" for the character.
- Tag "m:glasses" for when a male wears them; "f:glasses" for females.
- Tag "c:doraemon" for the character; tag "p:doraemon" for the series.
It is also possible to perform searches using the "uploader" namespace. Note that usernames with spaces require quotation marks to surround the name.
