    Updated with Race tags, independent of the other official tags!

    Hooray! Race Tags! I knew it would be a good idea! Now let's check up upon some nice Bretons.

    How about Aedra and Daedra tags? Like if a build associated with a certain god or prince.

    If the Race tags don't count towards the limit of 3 tags, this page should be updated to reflect that.  The way it's listed with the limit of 3 described at the bottom of the page makes it sound like the limit applies to all tags.  Perhaps it should say:

    "Any build that you choose to add to the archive is allowed up to 3 group tags, 1 race tag, and 1 rank tag."

    You should probably read what's actually written there before posting this sort of thing.

    "Race tags work slightly differently. Simply add the tag Race:(Name of Race), Race:Breton for example. There are no spaces in there so no quotation marks are needed."

    As for your second point I had the rank tags (which don't have spaces) in before the Photos folks did their thing. It's a little late now that lots of photos are already tagged though.

    Could we move the Battlemage to the list of Magic using classes? Because, as the name says it, the Battlemage is a mage:

    - in Morrowind, 3 out of 5 Major Skills and 3 out of 5 Minor Skills were Magic Skills. That's 6 out of 10; the remaining 4 are Combat (3 skills) and Stealth (1 skill)

    - in Oblivion, 5 out of 7 Skills are Magic Skills, the remaining 2 being Combat Skills

    Added a "Character Build: PC" tag to use if you're basing your build heavily around mods.

    Oh man I knew this was gonna happen sooner or later. the Skyrim blog is slowly creeping its way to become pc elitist

    When Emer was coming into power the one thing I said to myself was please don't add a modding group BAM modders workshop.

    Then I said "GREAT know were gonna have builds based around mods" BAM "character build: pirate prince"

    I did not expect that we would have a whole character tag around pc mod builds

    Even though I've said all this it was bound to happen anyway so I suggest maybe the pc character tag shouldn't count towards your whole tag count so you should have 3, then a race tag then if NEEDED a pc tag. but that's just my suggestion take it or leave it
