So, this is going to be the official "Tag Post." What this means is, every time we add a new tag, it should be listed here. If you want a new tag, comment here. If you think a certain tag should be deleted, provide a good reason ('dur-hur, no one uses it!' would be a good example) and we'll consider it. Oh, and the tags we do have SHOULD be fairly self-explanatory, but for shiz and giggles, we might provide a bit of an example as to when they should/n't be used. Comprende?
(Currently the only problem is, there's no playthedamncard
moderator account, so no one else can modify this page but me. Short of either a) creating such an account, which would suckily be Plus-level, because LJ is all kinds of suck like that) or b) posting it somewhere that every mod can edit, e.g. the User Info page (ew), people will just have to pester me to edit this page. Sucks. Sorry.)

I'm here to talk to you about the Avenger Initiative And now for something completely different...
A bulk of the community was swaying in two different directions re: character-specific tags. Personally, I don't find a tag called "character-specific" very helpful. It doesn't tell you WHAT character, and if I happen to be a on a specific-character fix, I don't want to have to sort through buttloads of other characters' character-specific stuff. That said, having EVERY SINGLE DAMN CHARACTER would be hard, so I'd want pretty much the "main" or "most popular" cast members from each show. Suggestions for what this constitutes are welcome.
Another question-- how many of you remember my "Astrology, Blood Types, and Yu-Gi-Oh!" entries? Well, they are definitely "discussion" and they were character-specific, but I'm wondering if you think discussion entries should be further tagged/sub-divided somehow. If you were to go looking for those (or other discussion entries), what sort of tags would you expect to find on the entries? I thought about using "ygo!dm," but then, the discussions there apply to the characters as a whole, not specific to their anime or manga counterparts. So... what? MOAR TAGZ PLZ!
