Tagging Guide

Welcome! This is meant as a guide for users of the site who want to tag their own pages after posting. Tags allow us to group together articles with similar content or format, and allow you to easily browse using those parameters. I could go on about how useful tags are, but instead, let's just get to it.

So I Heard You Wanna Tag Your Pages

Most of you will know this already, but the process for actually tagging your pages is quite simple. Simply scroll to the bottom of the page, find the "Tags" button (third from the left), and enter the tags you want to apply. If there are multiple, separate them with a space. For example, if I wanted to apply the "entry", "verse", and "elrich" tags to a page, I'd input "entry verse elrich" into the box and hit "Save Tags".

Major Page Tags

Every page should have at least one of these tags on it. The tag will differ depending on the type of page, but most are fairly simple to identify.

Style Tags

These tags describe the style in which pages are written. If a page contains multiple styles of writing, more than one of these tags may be applied to the page.

Book Tags

These tags are applied to articles in a book. To put it simply, a book is a series of related articles on site. All articles in a book will get that book's tag, as well as a hub for the Book if applicable. The vast majority of articles will not have a book tag. If you would like to propose a Book tag, go ahead and make a discussion post on this page's thread listing all works in that proposed Book, and feel free to let staff know!

Setting/GoI/PoI Tags

If a page contains references to a group, person, or setting that has a tag, that tag will be applied to the page. If you would like to propose a Setting/GoI/PoI tag, go ahead and make a discussion post on this page's thread listing all works in that proposed tag, and feel free to let staff know!

Attribute Tags

If a page contains content relating to any of these concepts, ideas, or attributes, that tag should be applied to that page. A page may have many of these tags, or none at all!

Contest/Prompt Tags

These tags are applied to a page written as part of an official contest or front page prompt. They can be used in conjunction with other tags.

Archived Tags

These tags were once used in the library but for some reason have become obsolete and are no longer in use. These tags should no longer be applied to any new pages.

Congrats, You Survived!

And that's it. Not so bad, right? I'm sure you'll be tagging your own articles like a pro in no time at all. If you still don't feel confident, have no fear! Staff will tag your article for you! We simply offer the choice of tagging your own as the person who knows the article best is the author themselves. Happy writing, Wanderers!
