New Room Tagging System
Tag - you’re it! We’re introducing more tags to define your rooms better! Learn what the tags are and how to pick the best tags for your room.
The existing tagging system in Rec Room has a set of mandatory primary tags, including PvP, Quest, Game, Hangout, Art, and Other. However, these tags fall short in encompassing the diverse range of room genres available. With definitions being unclear and a lack of guidance on how to effectively use tags, most current rooms don’t follow a consistent tagging practice.Our goal here is to introduce a more comprehensive tag list that will help creators define and categorize content better. This expanded standardized tagging capacity allows for detailed and accurate representation of the room's purpose, so that eventually, players can easily discover games that they’d have more interest in.We will be collecting ongoing feedback on the tag list so if you strongly believe another tag should be added or changed, please use our Upvote board!
Creators! Please note, as of January 19th, the standardized list of tags will still include the generic #game tag. However this is planned to be removed in a future update in favor of the new, more specific tags. We encourage you to use a different tag from the list below instead of #game for this reason.

Our Updated List of Tags

So What is the New System?
Primary TagsThe new tagging system introduces a more streamlined approach. Each room must have one primary tag, chosen from the list above. Creators will select the primary tag that best represents the main genre or theme of their room, and it will be displayed underneath the room/creator name.

Secondary TagsTo complement the primary tag, rooms can now have up to two secondary tags. These secondary tags also draw from the same list as primary tags, and are intended to cover genres or themes not captured by the primary tag.To avoid duplication, secondary tags cannot be the same as the primary tag. The secondary tags will be displayed next to the primary tag underneath the room/creator name in a different color.

Additional TagsThese include non-genre tags that cannot be the same as the ones in main and secondary tag list. You can use up to 5 additional custom tags to further define your room and can't be from the given list above.
