You add tags simply by writing them in the tag field. If a tag doesn't already exist, it will be created.

You will also need the minimum reputation level of 1500.

Add the minimum required reputation level and your answer is the only one that really answers the question. – Konerak Jul 20 '10 at 13:06
@Konerak - thanks for the comment. Answer updated. – Oded Jul 20 '10 at 14:24
And if you don't have the rep you can always leave a comment for higher rep users who might add it if it makes sense. – Georg Fritzsche Jul 20 '10 at 15:49
Is it a good idea if they are automatically created? Who knows how many I've accidentally created! Perhaps there should be a challenge: "Are you sure you want to create this tag?" It could be a simple typo, for instance. – winwaed Nov 18 '10 at 19:53
@winwaed - not really a problem. Moderators can see newly created tags and clean them up. This happens all the time. – Oded Nov 18 '10 at 20:13

Ravi, you require a reputation of at least 1500 to create new tags.
