For more technical and advanced information about the tagging system.
When a user attempts to add a tag for the first time they will be prompted by a disclaimer stating the guidelines for tagging. This is a setting stored in the user's cookies so clearing them resets accepting the disclaimer.
Namespaces indicate a tag's purpose. Some tags cannot be entered without an accompanying namespace. Attempting to add a tag without an assigned namespace will alert the user of the accepted namespaces for that tag. Requests for namespace assignments may be posted here.
Tag Mod Power
Like many functions on E-Hentai tagging operates on users' cumulative mod power. Tags gain certain attributes if they reach specific amounts:
|MP||Effect on Tag|
- Upvotes use mod power equal to that of the user while downvotes use half (rounded up). Users with veto power downvote at their full mod power.
- Uploaders adding/upvoting tags on their own galleries receive a +20 mod power bonus. Downvoting is not affected.
- Certain tags cannot be voted on without a minimum amount of mod power; this is to prevent misuse by newer users.
- Tags that have never been used before require 15 mod power to be used for the first time and only in the Temp namespace.
- Normal = White
- Upvoted = Green
- Downvoted = Red
- Selected = Blue
- Slave = Gray (cannot be voted)
- Downvoted slave = Dark red (cannot be undone)
- Upvoted slave = Dark green (vote can be withdrawn)
Slave tags are tags that have been grouped together under a single master tag. Tags are typically grouped because they are misspellings or are synonymous. The master tag will be the most correct spelling or approved tag (e.g. sex toys is the master tag for "dildo", "vibrator", etc.)
Slave tags are rarely seen by non-moderators as an auto-tagger removes them after a period of time. Attempting to tag/upvote a slaved tag will do so to the master tag instead. Searches utilizing a slaved tag will return galleries tagged with the master tag.
Master tags may have 1 alias each (selected from its slaves). The slave tag's name is displayed after the master tag, separated by a vertical bar. This is used primarily for parodies, characters, and creators well-known by more than 1 name.
- parody: the melancholy of haruhi suzumiya | suzumiya haruhi no yuuutsu
- character: saber | arturia pendragon
- artist: nanashi | 774
- Tags can only be added to published galleries.
- The field to add/upvote tags has an input cap of 200 characters.
- Tags listed in order of power when they are of equal power are listed in reverse alphabetical order.
- Users with < 2 power are unable to start tags or downvote tags.
