Tags

Tags are a way to grant access, assign restrictions, or attach other kinds of metadata to various to objects e.g. worlds, users and avatars. These tags are in the form of simple strings, grouped together in a string array, and commonly prefixed with a namespace designating the type of tag.

Tags starting with admin_ are always assigned to the user manually by a staff. Tags starting with system_ are automatically assigned by the system.

Trust rank tags have an offset of 1 with their name, so system_trust_trusted is actually only Known User (orange). The arrows in the following picture highlight the offset naming inaccuracy. The naming system is because of legacy reasons. Visistors have no trust rank at all. It is common for people User and above to be missing the tag for New User.

Worlds can also have a range of different event-specific tags such as admin_vket2021 for the Vket row, admin_muzzfesst for the MUZZFEST event, or admin_halloween_2019 for the 2019 Halloween row. These are not listed because it would be impossible to accurately keep such list up-to-date, and each tag is of little use outside of that specific event.

Language Tags

Language tags primarily appear on User profiles, with each user being allowed to have at most 3 language tags. Language tags can also appear on Instances, showing the languages the people in that instance speak.
