Create a New Tag
  • Before creating a new tag check for a similar or equivalent tag.
  • Avoid long tag names. Use a single word or as few words as possible.
  • Don't use abbreviations or contractions.
  • In general tags should be singular rather than plural (tree, not trees, etc.).
  • Spell out street numbers (First Street rather than 1st Street).
  • If the text of a tag needs to be edited after it's created send an email request to information@carletonwatkins.org.
