What is a tag?Tags are like categories, keywords or labels with the difference that you get to decide what that category might be. You can categorise your posts at Whedonesque with any tag you think is relevant. So when, for example, you are linking to a Angel episode review on Aint-it-cool-news, you could add the tags 'angel', 'review', 'aicn'.
If you've used Flickr.com before, you'll know that site allows for pictures to be tagged. Users of the Del.icio.us social bookmarking service will be familiar with the concept too.
Why tags?Tags make it easier to find stuff on Whedonesque.com. For example:
- Want to find all posts tagged 'SMG'? Just go to whedonesque.com/tag/smg
- What about full actor names like Anthony Head? Easy, just go to whedonesque.com/tag/anthony+head
- Want to find all posts about comics? Go to whedonesque.com/tag/comics . Or try whedonesque.com/tag/comic+books
- We've been tagging all threads that contain posts by Joss himself with a 'joss post' tag. Check whedonesque.com/tag/joss+post
How do I tag?When you post a story, you'll see there's a new box in the form. That's where you can fill in any words or combination of words you think makes sense and are relevant to your post. Separate tags with a comma. Like so: word1, word2, word word3, word4
You can also go back through the archives and tag any of your old posts
