On many resource pages, you can filter by tags. There is a fixed list of tags, and as of now, the easiest (and only?) way to see this list is to click on "Submit File". This is very unintuitive. I only discovered this tag list by accident. Prior to that I just had to guess which tags might exist.



My suggestion is to add a direct link to the list of tags, something like this:

Tags:
Up to 5, comma separated. Prefix a tag with + to require multiple (+space,+planet). Prefix with - to exclude (-planet). List of tags.



Here's a list of resource pages that have a fixed list of tags hidden behind "Submit File". The two I personally care about the most are SMW Graphics and SMW Music:

- SMW Graphics https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&s=smwgraphics&g=1#filter (Tags: https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=cms&page=1372803-graphics-section-tags)
- SMW Music https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&s=smwmusic#filter (Tags hidden in the middle of https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&s=smwmusic&a=submit, moving tags to a separate page similar to SMW Graphics might make sense.)
- SMW Blocks https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&s=smwblocks#filter (Tags: https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=cms&page=1367558-asm-section-tags)
- SMW Sprites https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&s=smwsprites#filter (Tags: https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=cms&page=1367558-asm-section-tags)
- SMW Patches https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&s=smwpatches#filter (Tags: https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=cms&page=1367558-asm-section-tags)
- SMW UberAsm https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&s=uberasm#filter (Tags: https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=cms&page=1367558-asm-section-tags)
- BRR Samples https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&s=brrsamples#filter (Tags in the middle of https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&s=brrsamples&a=submit)
- SMW Hacks https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&s=smwhacks#filter (Tags: https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=cms&page=1403184-hacks-section-tags)

I don't really care about non SMW stuff, but for the sake completeness:

- SM64 Music https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&s=sm64music#filter (Tags in the middle of https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&s=sm64music&a=submit)
- YI Music https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&s=yimusic#filter (Tags in the middle of https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&s=yimusic&a=submit)
- YI SPASM https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&s=spasm(Tags in the middle of https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&s=spasm&a=submit)
- SM64 Hacks https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&s=sm64hacks#filter (Tags in the middle of https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&s=sm64hacks&a=submit)

PS: There is a related issue about tags here, but that one suggests a more involved change to the filtering gui. My suggestion of adding a link is less work (I hope) and it would already new creators a lot.
Yeah I agree with this completely.

Indeed, the whole tag system is really inconsistent between different sections in the submissions pages too, for instance, in the graphics one you have a giant "List of Tags" text, in the patches ones you have a "For a list of tags which you can use in your submission, see this page." text in normal size, and in the music one you have the tags hidden in a collapse "Official Tag List: Show" form. Kinda misleading if you ask me.
