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)

Also when there's only a few players from a fandom around. (Ie when museboxes or people drop out and you have just a couple as with hype goes)

(Deleted comment)
Same! And then usually at the end of it all there's none :\ So sad (and where did all of the Sanctuary castmates disappear to?)

(Deleted comment)
Me too! Might need some of the musemostwanted feelers again to see where everyone headed. Clearly it's cool and we're missing something.

If you're only interested in interacting with people from your fandom, why not seek out a fandom-specific community?

(Deleted comment)
That makes sense. Thanks for clearing it up for me. I suppose I didn't really understand why people seemed to be having so much difficulty finding others within their fandom to interact with. I just figured there were so many other ways to solve the issue. I still think there are a bunch of prettier, neater, more effective ways to go about it. But your response really clears up some misconceptions I had. Thanks!

I think I'm probably speaking from the "opposite" perspective of everyone else as well. Really, I don't play in a whole lot of fandoms. My favorite muses are all original creations. So I often feel pushed to the sidelines by discussions such as this. I remember things like this being talked about in the past, and it really isolated people whose preference was to play original characters. Based on discussions in times past, it seems like most OC writers really don't feel like those from fandoms care to interact with them, and things like this seem at times to exasperate that frustration.

Just being able to have someone explain their frustrations with fandom play to me really helps me make better sense of this and why it would be a good option for a lot of people.

Like me. Complete opposite timezone to the rest of you. *still unhappy on that fact*

Maybe they are just curious about where their castmates are, and not specifically looking to just play within their fandom. That could be the case.

Had to pop in seeing this boy mentioned!

I do love Steel even if Matt is still a bit bitter because of the end of series 3.

Ah, I see. That's totally plausible.
