I want to make a new tag for Studio Trigger's BNA as I noticed there was no tag for it. I also didn't see any best practice guides here or in the help section about how to create a tag for an anime/manga.

Not sure what I should call the new tag for this anime so I wanted a second opinion:

  • BNA
  • brand-new-animal
  • romaji bi-enu-e

I'm temped to pick either of the first two. My qualm with the first is I don't know what to do if there is some other anime/manga that already uses this short hand name. Nor do I know what will happen if I use BNA and then some other anime/manga is made that also goes by "BNA" when the tag already exists for Studio Trigger's BNA.

Based on personal preference:

  1. I think can be a good compromise considering that Wikipedia and Fandom Wiki use BNA: Brand New Animal.
  2. Otherwise, create (and optionally, synonymize to it), as per How do we want to name series tags?.
  3. I don't think 'bi-enu-e' (certainly not with the diacritics) is something that people commonly use to refer to it.

That said, creating a new tag needs 300 rep, and without existing questions, the tag cannot be created. Consider using instead for the moment, as per Shouldn't we have just one "retag" tag?.

  • I like bna-brand-new-animal. That fixes a lot of the issues and makes it clear "which bna" if there are multiple. Also I didn't know that tags now need 300 rep. I thought I read in one of the older meta posts it was 150. Thanks for letting me know! :)

    @Wimateeka ah, the 150 rep was when the site hadn't got its site design yet. After that, the rep threshold was raised.
