Hey guys, mod here just letting you know that the tags on our community here have been all updated for your browsing convenience! Like, after 6 years of them just sitting there as-is! Wow I'm awful!

Main things included:
-tagging posts that were untagged, including but not limited to fanart, fanfic, etc.
-creating 'game', 'event', 'graphics', 'amv', and 'related works' tags
-the 'fanmade' and 'links' tags were a little ambiguous to me, so I left those unupdated, but didn't delete them...

Below the cut is a list of our tags and what you can expect in each of them. New tags have a bolded description next to them.

Let me know if you have any feedback about how the tags work!
