How are new tags added to the Mathematica forum?

Lately I've been working with celltags in Mathematica, and there have been quite a few questions on them in this forum. I think they are important enough to have their own tag in the forum. What is the procedure for requesting this? I am assuming someone is control of these tags so they don't get out of control.

    I think questions about CellTags are covered under the cells tag. If you are looking for questions specifically about CellTags, you can find them using search. In my opinion tag names should be names of topics and not the names of Mathematica functions or options for functions.

You can add a tag by typing the intended name of the new tag alongside the other (autocompleted) existing tags in the question (source), so the system does not require you to make a request or anything like that. On the other hand, I suppose it can be nice to post here on meta that you want to add a new tag to get some feedback. There are quite a few Q&A's on meta about reorganising tags, so it may be nice to have some discussion before adding a new tag, to get it right on the first try.

Note that you need to have at least 300 reputation points to create a new tag, which is not a problem in your case. See also this privilege/reputation table.
