That is a signature, not a tag.

I thought I just didn't know the gfx lingo :aware:

 

 

I said that on another topic, why do people call them tags?

 

Also, if you want to get really specific, even the above arent tags.

A tag is usually a one-word scribble-like piece of writing.

Not a full, colour piece.

A tag is just the writing of a name with a basic design, in one colour, usually very small.

 

 

The above are murals/ throw-ups, or just "pieces" in general.

 

 

Is there any reason people called them tags?

I can think of two reasons:

1. Runescape censors "Signature," so the use of tag would be to avoid filters and remain selling signatures for Runescape money

2. Because tag sounds "cooler"

It's not just runescape places that uses them, no way.

 

Eveywhere uses them, gamerenders, planetrenders ect.

 

Tag your sig space, customise it. Signature is the entire thing, you go Control Panel - Edit Signature not edit sig space, thats just what people call it.

 

I say

Sig Space: the thing that appears at the bottom of every post. So people don't get muddled up with the graphics signature or the handwriting signature.

Tag: So people know, on graphics site anyway, i'm refer to the actual picture, not anything else.

 

IMO tag sounds better anyway.

 

It's kind of become a habit for me because I go on GR and PR quite a bit now.

Tag sounds arrogant.

Tag Tag Tag Tag Tag Tag Tag Tag Tag Tag. :)

 

I like "signature" better. Although "tag" seems to be popping up everywhere and I accidently typed it in my tutorial three days ago. :aware: At least, according to your definition, it was actually a tag.
