Tagging rules

  • Tags should be comma separated, and you should use a period ('.') to separate words inside a tag - eg. 'hip.hop'.
  • There is a list of official tags on the upload page. Please use these tags instead of 'unofficial' tags (eg. use the official 'drum.and.bass' tag, instead of an unofficial 'dnb' tag.)
  • Avoid abbreviations if at all possible. So instead of tagging an album as 'alt', tag it as 'alternative'. Make sure that you use correct spelling.
  • Avoid using multiple synonymous tags. Using both 'prog.rock' and 'progressive.rock' is redundant and annoying - just use the official 'progressive.rock' tag.
  • Don't use 'useless' tags, such as 'seen.live', 'awesome', 'rap' (is encompassed by 'hip.hop'), etc. If an album is live, you can tag it as 'live'.
  • Only tag information on the album itself - NOT THE INDIVIDUAL RELEASE. Tags such as 'v0', 'eac', 'vinyl', 'from.oink' etc are strictly forbidden. Remember that these tags will be used for other versions of the same album.
