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)

Separate tag for every movie?

(Deleted comment)
I'm not sure I agree that every series is popular enough for its own tag. The mods and/or community will have to decide what counts as popular.

There's also overlap with things like Generations, someone who decides to play an older Scotty (like from post-"Relics") or somesuch, or even people playing a character that doesn't exist in XI but does in TOS (like Rand, Chapel, etc.).

I suppose it would be fine if there was a set rule for how to handle stuff like that.

It doesn't really stand to reason at all. Who knows who was killed by Nero? If we don't see them in canon, they're a fandom OC, but they're based on TOS canon. There's a lot of messy overlap there.

Okay, she has one line. Sorry.

I'm not really sure it's fair at all to include every Trek, especially when there are things that have dozens of fairly popular versions, such as the X-Men, but I think that's a decision either the mods and/or the community needs to make.

I'm not jumping on you, there's no need to be passive aggressive. I think you brought up a point that's worth discussing, and is potentially a huge drawback of any tag system on a community this large. I'm sorry I wasn't clearer about that.
