    Below is a list of the tags we've added, they will be added to the list on the first post shortly.

    If there was a tag you suggested and you don't see it here, PM us if you would like to discuss it. We're still happy to take suggestions if/when you think of them either here or by PM.

    One that we do want to quickly address are the content warning type ideas. We didn't add them for several reasons: Nothing should be posted that is over the family friendly line. If the author thinks it needs a warning while still within the rules, or for things that must have a warning/label it MUST be clearly indicated in the opening post of the thread. Tags are not required to be used and easy to not see, so they don't work well for a warning type situation. We don't want to encourage use of things that may need content warnings, especially to newer members who may not be as familiar with our family friendly standards. Also, because there is no way to search for things without a specific tag, so it doesn't work as a negative tag (You couldn't search for stories tagged "tragedy" that doesn't have a "character death" tag).

    Suggest:

    Under genres, add "Squadfic." Pilots is useful, but could also refer to Han Solo or Bodhi Rook, whereas a Squadfic is very specific in re: what types of pilots.

    Oh, and can we either pin this or maybe just cut and paste the new tags into the FAQ at the top? I always need a quick reference, 'cause I can't seem to retain things in my brain anymore... :)

    Can I suggest adding "adventure" as a genre?... I find it kinda funny that's it's not part of the list.

    Don't worry about that. That's pretty obvious that we can see right away. We've not been as worried about it recently because we were hoping to change the whole system, but the not being able to edit titles put a damper in that. On our priority list, that's down pretty low.
