It's okay to tag a thread for Vocaloid in a Vocaloid forum as an example since tags work across the forum.
If a character only has a first name, only tag the character's first name. If a character or person has a Japanese name then tagging with the last name first is best for consistency.
You can edit tags to any topic you made by editing the first post. Anyone can add tags to any topic by selecting "Edit Tags" in the upper right in topic view.
This isn't quite page of rules, but more of a guide to help each other find the content we want.
