MOD POST: Tags!

I added a sizable list of tags to the community tonight. After you update, you can click the button on the entry page (looks like ) or use the "edit tags" link on the community page or on your friends page in most styles. You should then be able to choose from the list of provided tags. You can also type in tags while updating, but it's not as convenient.

Please keep in mind that you should only add relevant tags; no piling on every tag imaginable. Please try to be logical about it. There are some more 'subtle' situations: for example, if you're posting your legacy story update, please use just "stories: legacy". You don't need to also add "stories: general".

Any member of the community can add tags to entries, but only maintainers can remove tags or add new tags to the list. If you want a tag added, this is the place to ask for it. The removal bit is a limitation of the system, unfortunately, or I'd set it to let any member also remove tags.

Since we can't see who adds which tags, we simply ask that you be respectful and logical if you're adding tags to entries you didn't write; if this doesn't work out, we'll have to switch to only maintainers doing anything with tags, or get rid of it altogether.

With all that kept in mind, I am adding tags to recent-ish entries, but I am definitely not going back through all 12,400+ entries to tag them! We still have both memories and community search to provide you with a very full set of archiving features. Please take the time to use ALL of them before asking questions!

And last but not least I've changed the community's style, which I hope makes the search function more prominent and in general the community prettier. ;) It may yet get tweaked some more, though.

Much nicer layout! :D I think it works better too...a header might make it cooler though...maybe we could have a contest? :D (Just cause I've seen the awesome skills people posting legacies have when it comes to making their pictures look pretty!)

You're right it probably would look a little more put together with some kind of header, but since atm I was just choosing from LJ's layouts I didn't want any of those. :P Haha.

I will need to talk to other mods before I go announcing any contests though. ;)

I like the tags idea a lot...should be really helpful.

And the new layout threw me off for a sec, but I think I can get used to it. :)

Question, though. When was the last time the memories were updated? I remember reading a post recently that said they hadn't been updated in a while, so I thought I'd throw that out there.

Thanks again, though, for the tags! :D

I'll leave this for another mod to answer, because I pretty much loathe LJ's memory system and have never been the one to take care of this comm's memories. ;)

I think the white makes it look really fresh. I always hated the darker blues, tbh.

Thanks much!

The layout is very nice. It seems more "legible" or something. Maybe it's the white.

Anyways, I don't know a whole lot about tags. Are only the tags that mods have added to the tag-list available? Meaning, I can't type a tag that says "this community sucks" or something stupid, right?

Right. People can only pick from the list we've made.

Suggestions: "reviews" and "polls"?

Would it be possible to add a tag for "Expansion Pack Discussion" in general (rather than EP-specific), as well as "Custom Content Creation?"
Or would custom content creation questions just go under "custom content"?

Uh... that's it! I'm liking the tags, so far. I've already tagged several, but most of them were recent.

Me again, with more tag suggestions:
One for pregnancy/childbirth/babies/dna-- probably something like "Reproducing" or "Pregnancy/Birth".
Also, to reduce tags, why not just have a tag for all service NPCs, rather than new ones for maids and gardeners and nannies and the like?

So far, I'm still liking tags!

Tag request:

"neighborhoods"/"custom neighborhoods"
"insim" (since we have "simpe")
"screenshot programs"/"irfanview"/"fraps"
"tech: graphics cards"
"photo post" (since "screenshots" can mean just snaps of problems, and not an actual story or photo-sharing post)

I had more, but I forgot them already :(
