How do I request (I don't think i've the rep to create one) a new tag for this site?

I'm very surprised that there's no martial arts tag..

Edit: Discovered I do have the rep to create one.:

How do I create a new tag? Simply enter a new tag with your question and it will be created. When creating your new tag, bear in mind that tags ...

have a maximum of 25 characters must use the character set a-z 0-9 + # - .

Just as the privilege says:

The only way to make tags is to have enough rep to make a new one when asking a question or editing a question. A regular user (as far as I can see, and I'm not entirely sure mods can either) can not make a tag outside a question.

  • Moderators can create a tag through the synonym interface, but that's not useful in this context. – Gilles Feb 8 '12 at 21:30

If you have enough reputation (300 rep), type the new tag name when asking or editing a question. Make sure that your tag isn't a simple spelling or grammatical variant of an existing tag and that your tag fits the site's habits (have a look at the tag list and the tagging questions on meta).

If you don't have enough reputation, you cannot create a new tag. Pick one or more reasonable tags for your question, and leave a comment under your question to say what other tag(s) you had in mind. Someone will come along and add the tag (if they think it's a good idea).

  • And how would someone else add the tag? Would they have to use some screens only available to admins? – AidanO Feb 9 '12 at 8:26
  • @AidanO No, just type the new tag in the tag box when asking the question, or to change an existing question use the retag button, or the edit button if you want to do more than change the tags. If you have enough rep, you'll be able to create a new tag. – Gilles Feb 9 '12 at 21:14
  • It's 300 rep now that the site is graduated. – Shadow Wizard May 7 '17 at 13:04
