Entering Tags Not a New User (why can't I create tags? I'm not a "new user")

Builder

How come I can't create tags? It keeps telling me that I'm a new user but I'm not. And why does a title have to be at least fifteen characters?

Is there a way to remove this limitation for app related tags? I want to ask a question to the developper of an app, but as it is brand new, the app- tag doesn't exist... (specifically, it's about app-puppet-simony)

I have created the tag for you. However this is a valid concern. We will look into what can be done!

Basically it's to protect against spam and ensure the community can control content. You probably need to have accumulated 15 reputation points (by posting and being voted up) to create new tags. And the assumption is that a title less than 15 characters is most likely not descriptive or informative, hard to search for. People should not have to have to click through to a post to find out what it's about.

Actually you need at least 250 points before you can create tags.
