Tag Disclaimer

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
  • The tag will have a dotted border.
  • The tag becomes visible on the gallery.
  • The tag will have a dashed border.
  • The tag becomes searchable by default.
    • Newer galleries take between 1-5 minutes while older ones can take up to 1 hour to register into the search system.
    • The weak: qualifier may be used to find tags with 1-9 (inclusive) mod power.
  • The tag will have a solid border.
  • A language tag designates the gallery as being in that language. This also applies to language status tag (translated or rewrite).
  • A category tag will forcibly change the gallery's category.
    • If multiple language or category tags are present the one with the highest power wins.
  • 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.
    • Point.png This is not intended for fetish tags; those must always be suggested and approved.
      For other types (artists, parodies, characters, etc.), you will need to supplement your temp tag with supporting materials. Please see this guide for details.

Tag Colors

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Upvoted slave = Dark green (vote can be withdrawn)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

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.



  • 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.
