I have a Fairphone (Yes, the 'seriously cool smartphone' ;-)) and tried to put a tag 'FairPhone' below my first post. The error I got was that I cannot define new tags below 300 rep.

However I can define it as a favorite tag (top right; did that some weeks ago).

Is this a small error in the system (i.e. not checking the rep at that location)?

Adding the tag to your favourites doesn't actually create the tag, so it doesn't matter whether you have enough reputation or not. It just adds that tag name to a list in your profile. If a tag is subsequently created with that name, the tag will be in your favourites; until then, it has no effect.

If there's an error here, it's only that the behaviour is a little confusing.

BTW, there's not much point adding a new tag if there's only one question it relates to. Tags with one or zero questions are automatically removed after some time.

We also wouldn't normally add a device tag to this particular question, because it doesn't appear to be specific to this model: the same problem could just as easily arise with a different device.
