Fandom tags? Or no fandom tags?
Default
swsmod
We've been approached several times now about adding fandom tags, seeing as SWS is a large community and tons of post per day. So, we want your opinion. Fandom tags or just leave it how it is.

The good thing about tags is, sometimes people miss post from their fandom friends and this would give them the ability to find them easily. What this bored mod has been doing is compiling a possible list of tags to add. I'd love your input of what tags to have as well concerning fandoms, seeing as I don't know all of them. You can view them below the lj cut below. So leave your opinions. if there's enough 'yay's, then we will start adding them as soon as possible - (I'm going to give it about three days so that people can get their opinions and tag suggestions in.

Edit: clarity on the soon as possible: by this it intentionally meant: as soon as possible being when things are hammered out and a system is devised. and three days meaning: three days for people to get their opinions in (not three days and we're making a decision)

I actually love this idea. Like a lot. It seems like you've got most of the more regular canons covered. I'm just curious as to how you're envisioning them being used because some of us cross over into other ponds quite a bit. Would the tag then be utilized for the character's home canon then?

Also, if the nays end up having it, what I usually do when I've been gone for awhile and want to find a particular muse's post, I'll just do the sort by poster option on the comm. Like so... It's also handy for when you're anal and like to link back to entries on the pup journal and forget what all you've posted.

Holy crap. LOL I never knew that sort by poster thing. :| I'm speshul.

It's only been around for a couple of months? So don't feel like you're the last one to the party bb. :D

For crossing over, I would say that they could use multiple tags perhaps or...if it would be simpler just make a crossover tag. I don't know. the idea is still in the starting stages so hard to say lol.

But oh...I like that little thing you posted. I never knew you could do that.

It looks like a lot of us didn't know you could do that.

As mentioned above, I guess the OTA option always works. If you're looking for interaction from a particular fandom and you've already had some before, then really it might actually be unnecessary to have a crossover tag. Don't mind me I'm thinking out loud.

I feel like I'm the only one who reads the LJ updates now. *is a dork*

*laughs* I read the updates, too. I kept forgetting exactly how to do it for a while, though.

Holy crap! I never knew about the sort by poster function. ilu!

Why did you never tell me? ;_; I'm taking the kids and going to my mother's.

I didn't know you didn't know? I've only used it a couple times? Most of the people I play with post links in their journals so I don't have to use it much?

Don't take the kids! I love the kids!

How long have we had kids?

Well, it's not like we ever just sit around an talk about livejournal's features, is it?

*laughs* No, not really. It's not a part of my everyday conversation.

... Unless I'm complaining about something going wrong.

It's your civic duty. But I look smarter when you don't.

Didn't know about that, thank you :D

*Gives cookies* I would also like to say I never noticed this was possible...

Cookie monster for hosting SNL!

Oh, wow, I'm late reading this, but can you help me? I see what you did, but have no clue how you did it! How do you sort by user?

Sure thing. This news post explains it, but basically, on any community that you're on, simply add

?poster=USERNAME

after the end of the community's url.
