▼ Description

Artwork - TheHuskyk9_(artist)
Taugit - Versperus

The idea behind Taugit was that like a mole digs threw dirt, some of us dig threw posts finding tags, sources, and artist names. So the idea is Taugit would be a location to keep a public version of the cheat sheet for people who have a hard time with tags, or want to help other people in this quest of tagging glory.

▼ How to add artist name
Adding To The Registry

If a tag you want to change is already on the website you must go here search the desired tag, and than change said tag type to artist.

The easiest way to do this is to copy the desired artist tag after uploading and putting it in the provided search engine or by going to (Tags) at the top of the page

If you are more familiar with URL you can quickly navigate to the editor page by including the tag you are wanting to edit on the end of this URL
https://e621.net/tag/edit?name=

Simple artist names should be prefixed with (artist) at the end of their names.
i.e. Kyle_(artist)

Where as more complex artist names wouldn't need this prefix
i.e. Dark-Ahroun-Friesian

If an Artist has made a character that shares the name they use for artwork, than their artist tag would be Artistname_(character) for example fek is an artists name, and their fursona is fek_(character)

Upon creating a new tag, it is possible to metatag a post. For example if the artist tag isn't yet on the site one can simply write-

artist:Kyle_(artist)

The Artist Wiki

If you are a new artist to e621, or you are adding posts from an artist that doesn't yet have artwork on e621 you can set up an artist wiki. By doing this it makes it possible to find the listed artists works via the Artists search option at the top of the screen, as well as provide notes of said artist (Don't abuse this) And group the known pages owned by the artist.

To do this, one can click on the ? on the left side of the artist name in the tags. Here is a quick link

Please note that before adding either an artist name or a character name to the registry it is important to first check in the search engine if that name is already being used, as it is a chance that the artist has already had works uploaded to e621 or the character might already have an existing tag.

▼ How to add OC

To change a tag to a character in the registry one must go here and input the tag you wish to change the type of. Once on the tag page you can change the tag type.

If you are more familiar with URL you can quickly navigate to the editor page by including the tag you are wanting to edit on the end of this URL
https://e621.net/tag/edit?name=

Character names that are simple should have a prefix on the end that relate to he character owner.

i.e. if a character was named dave and the artist name was purplemoose the tag should look like
dave_(purplemoose)

Upon creating a new tag, it is possible to metatag a post. For example if the character tag isn't yet on the site one can simply write-

character:dave_(purplemoose)

Which will add said character name to the register without needing to do so manually via the tags page.

If an Artist has made a character that shares the name they use for artwork, than their artist tag would be Artistname_(character) for example fek is an artists name, and their fursona is fek_(character)

Please note that before adding either an artist name or a character name to the registry it is important to first check in the search engine if that name is already being used, as it is a chance that the artist has already had works uploaded to e621 or the character might already have an existing tag.

▼ Including a source


Sources to a secondary location to view an artists works such as deviantart or furaffinity is always smart to provide if the artist has secondary sources so people can view artwork the artist has that may not be seen or appropriate on e621

▼ What does your post look like
Does your character have:

Fur - What color is it? black_fur, white_fur, spotted_fur ect.
Skin - This needs to be clarified, for only writing skin is an invalid_tag. black_skin, brown_skin, purple_skin ect.
Scales - striped_scales, purple_scales, two_tone_scales ect.
Feathers - blue_feathers, red_feathers, feathered_wings ect.
Body_color - If you don't know what covers the character this is a fall back, or if the character is a Goo_creature

Your characters form:

Anthro - An animalistic creature that walks on two legs, like a biped
Feral - A creature drawn in its natural form usually a quadruped
Humanoid - A mostly human looking creature with animal or alien features (this tag has sub categories dog_humanoid, cat_humanoid ect)
Human - The character is human
Taur - The lower half is that of feral creature such as a horse, with the upper half of a humanoid or anthromorphic creature
Lamia - A creature that looks human or anthro with a snakes lower half
Naga - A completely snake looking creature with the torso of a bipedal creature (arms, breasts, abs ect.)
Goo_creature - The character is Goo, generally able to change form and usually a wet and shiny texture

How many creatures are in the image?
Solo = there is one
Duo = there is two
Group = three or more

▼ Fixing Tags

The most basic rule of tagging is a 4 tag minimum upon uploading, repeated offences face the wrath of staff

When uploading copy pasting tags from other websites is ill advised as e621 has created a cataloguing system for proper tags that relate to the image in detail while parent sites are opinion based.

If you upload a post and a general tag or species tag only shows a very low number of posts tagged with the same tag, chances are that tag doesn't apply to e621 or is miss spelled.

If a tag says (disambiguation) at the end, it means the tag you chose is to general and needs to be clarified, by clicking on the question mark to the left of said tag there is a glossary of possible tags that you could of ment to choose from.

If after you tag your post says invalid_tag it means that one or more tags added have been deemed inapplicable to e621 by the admins and will either be automatically removed from the post, or be switched to invalid_tag

If after you tag your post says invalid_color it is because simply writing a color as a tag like yellow doesn't clarify what is yellow, you need to write *yellow_fur* or *yellow_background*

▼ Rating

Explicit: Anything to do with genitals, be it vaginal, testical, penile, anus.

This also includes anything that looks like a sexual act, you don't need to see genitals if it looks like sex or so forth.

Questionable: Anything to do with Sexually provocative clothing, Bulges, Camel toe, suggestive dialogue ext.

Safe: If this isn't self explanatory than please read the bellow tagging checklist link

▼ Pools and Sets

Pools -
To Create a pool you start by going to the top of the screen to the Pools button, next you press New
Here is a quick link to creating a pool

Moderators Insist not to use pools for images you simply like, as pools are public and ment to be used for specific purposes. Such as a comic set or ask blog.

Sets-
Creating a set starts by going to the top of the screen, and clicking the Sets button, followed by clicking New
here is a quick link to making a set

Sets operate much in the same ways as pools, the difference being sets are for private pools of images meaning you can create a group of images to your personal taste rather than to a purpose. You can choose to make said sets public which allows people to view them from the sets page, or for your personal viewing

▼ A Note from the poster

Take note that if this is shared to your upload it isn't intended as an insult but rather an informative to expand on common uploader issues and to provide quick tutorials in correcting them.

The author of this is in no way an expert of tags, and is also learning everyday and constantly editing this sheet to improve it's quality for ease of those viewing it.

A better tagged post, is a better e621. Well tagged posts contribute to artist notoriety, The more likely someone is able to find your post via the search engine the better off the artist of that post. If your a fan it is a courtesy to tag said artists works well. And of course if your the artist, it does you all the justice listed above and we are glad to have you here sharing your works with us! artist are the blood in our veins!
