DIY is a world of highly segregated and siloed microcommunities. Some other, weaker overlords might try to break these silos and cross-pollinate. Not me. The only cross-pollination I want to see if between the plants and bees threads.

So let's create some DIY/hobby-related gang tags!

The rough process is:
1. Any interested posters suggest some tags for their subcommunity or subcommunities
2. Some kind of voting on which are the best in their category
3. Any interested posters produce images for the winners
4. Some kind of voting on the best images for each tag
5. Anyone who participated in the thread and wants one or more of the tags gets them, free of charge

Please post your suggestions and what community you feel it represents.

Some starters:

Woodworking.

"Inhalers" for the scale modelling thread is pretty obvious, but we can make it friendlier with "painting pals" or "brushing buds".

That seems more suited to the Arduino thread which is only 80% of the same people.

Doesn't have to be limited to one thread if you feel you have a collective that spans multiple. Whatever you identify with as a group.
