    You are free to tag your Gallery submissions however you like, but using the following tags where applicable will get you the most views, as they are connected to the drop down list under the Gallery tab (EXACTLY as written here, i.e., use "Sketch" in your tag, not "Sketches", as it appears in the drop down menu). Caps don't appear to matter. If you think we should have another main category under the Gallery tab, you may suggest it in this thread! :meowlove:

    I am going to include definitions along with the tags, so it helps with more accurate tagging. Some of these have more varied/grey areas in literal definitions, (i.e., many people refer to two women as lesbian OR gay) but we would like you to use the following definitions just for clarity in tagging. It'll make finding different types of content much easier for viewers when the tags are used this way. :meowteal:

    SFW - Safe For Work (no mature or very little mature content)
    NSFW - Not Safe For Work (explicit mature content)
    Vanilla - Does not include BDSM or any alternative sex

    Group - Work that contains multiple people. This does not have to be inherently romantic or sexual but can be.

    Curvy - A body shape that emphasizes curves (Could be hips, breasts, buttocks, etc.)
    Chubby - A body shape that is more on the 'fluffy' end of curvy.
    Heavy - A body shape that is heavy, and usually the emphasis is on the largeness, the rotund nature of the subject
    Hyper - A body that has at least one part that is abnormally large, usually about half the size of the overall body

    I didn't know if Weird was an appropriate tag for it, wasn't sure if it was offensive, but I thought perhaps people who do tentacle art and such might be comfortable with it, since I've heard most people I know who do that genre of art refer to it themselves as "weird" or "alternative". Please, please let me know if there is a better tag you think should be used for it! As you do this stuff, you'd know far better than me! :meow:

    Aw, don't worry, "weird" is exactly as I would've put it, and it's not offensive in the least for me! After all, most niche fetishes are quite strange (getting off while seeing a woman's powers being extracted from her is what I think should officially defined as 'weird'!) and their practitioners are surely aware that their tastes can be seen that way; they've also probably made peace with that a lot of time ago!
    Also, don't forget that a word's meaning is strongly depending on its contest! When I think back to many strange things I found in these years on HF - KamiNitro's sweet vore pieces; MyTentacleMonster's Chateau du Monstres; Norasuko's adorable loli-monsters; Anasheya's "gifted" furries - I cannot help but think of "Deliciously Weird"! :D

    Please use one word for all tags in the future! It has been discovered that using spaces can cause issues with searching for tags! We're going to go with capitalization and no space. @Bee is currently working on adapting the popular tags to be correct!

    Hi, I'm new. Not sure if this is the correct place to ask, but I need some help :) I accidentally tagged my album with the tags intended for a picture, but now I can't delete the tags of the album, when I press the [x] after the tag a window pops up that says: "The following error occurred: Invalid tag name specified."

    If for some reason it's being a pain, just edit the album and adjust tags from that screen. Hope that helps! ^^

    Hello
    I have a suggestion : since there is a tag for "Feet", how about a category for "Spanking" and "Mummification" ? In my experience, they are quite popular topics. "Stockings" or "Pantyhose" is also quite popular.
    Thanks for considering it. ^^

    Oh, and definitely "tickling" too. ^^

    Here are a few more tags for the list:
    clamps, DID, electrical, forced, nonConsensual, reluctant, sissy, snuff, suspension, tinyTits, torture, tricked

    I created an alphabetized list for myself, and decided to include it here, in case anyone else can use it.
    The tags in grey should all be links which take you to a gallery page, etc. They were in the material I copy pasted to get the list.
    Not all items have definitions. Sometimes this was because I was lazy or uninterested. Other times it was because I wasn't sure what they mean. lol. If anyone wants to fill in missing definitions and re-post, please do. Also, feel free to create links to the non-linked tags, if you know how.
