Fandom tags? Or no fandom tags?
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)

harry potter
whoniverse (includes dr who/torchwood/sarah jane)
the vampire diaries
whedonverse (includes buffy/firefly/dollhouse/whedonstuff)
gossip girl
the walking dead
lord of the rings
true blood

I think the idea is more that it's based in the canon than that it keeps to the canon. Or at least that's the generally accepted modus operandi around here (hence the ability to call genderswapped/aged characters canon at all). Plus the point of the community is to cross fandoms, right? Or one of the points. Or... one of the draws at least.

It's just too messy when you get down to it, IMO.

Way too messy, and completely unnecessary. If people are worried about finding posts, there are so many other ways to solve the problem. This is just going to be an enormous headache for everyone.

If it happens (which it probably will, since the tags are already being listed), I'll just ignore them. Eventually people will probably stop using them anyway, because choosing the proper tags to apply will be too much work.

Also the tag lines of posts are going to end up twice as long as the posts themselves.

This could actually be sort of funny.

Maybe it'll draw some attention away from using the community as a meme dumping grounds...

I wonder what the tag for memes will be.

Yeaah. It's probably inevitable.
