The percentage, on the other hand, gives a better view of the trend a tag follows. It shows if, in proportion, the Hand-drawn tag is getting more or less popular. The Review chart can let us know if this trend is a positive thing (i.e. players interest for the tag is growing) or a negative one (the tag is overcrowded).
