What do we do if it's too long for one post? I'm not sure that's going to happen but I think it might.
Jan. 30th, 2008 03:18 pm (UTC)
make two or more posts for the same story. :D From what I've read in the archives, it's been done before.

What happens if we are unable to post the day that it is for? Can we post the day after? (pretty bad cold spell & storm expected and I worried about losing power or internet for the Feb 1st prompt I have)

Sure, love. You can post the day after. Just make sure to select or include the correct date tag (the date the prompt is listed under) for archiving purposes.

I saw this post and had a reflexive moment of, "OMG, it's already time???" panic.

Then I remembered my stories are done.

So now I can just bounce around going "It's almost time! It's almost time!" :D

The tags "phoenix wright: phoenix/edgeworth", "phoenix wright: phoenix/miles" and "phoenix wright:phoenix/edgeworth" are the same thing (the pairing Phoenix Wright/Miles Edgeworth).

I'll stop being annoying now.
Jan. 31st, 2008 11:45 pm (UTC)
Not annoying at all. Thank you for the help!

Yeah, so tags could use some cleaning
Tags have sometimes multiplied because people wrote the fandom differently, switched the names in the pairing around, wrote a new tag instead of taking the one that was there, or made a typo.

All the firsts tags could be merged into the seconds:

Devil May Cry

devil may cry (sparda/eva) same as → devil may cry: sparda/eva
devil may cry 3: dante/vergil same as → devil may cry: dante/vergil
devil may cry: vergil/dante same as → devil may cry: dante/vergil

Digital Devil Saga

digital devil sgaga: gale/demi-fiend same as → digital devil saga: gale/demi-fiend
digital devil saga serph/demifiend same as → digital devil saga: serph/demi-fiend
digital devil sage: gale/cielo same as → digital devil saga: gale/cielo
digital devil sage: gale/roland same as → digital devil saga: gale/roland

smt: digital devil saga: argilla/sera should be → digital devil saga: argilla/sera
smt: digital devil saga: naoki/seraph should be → digital devil saga: demi-fiend/seraph

Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne
This is made difficult by the nameless hero...

smt: nocturne: dante/hitoshura should be → smt: nocturne: dante/demi-fiend
smt: nocturne: hitoshura/futomimi should be → smt: nocturne: demi-fiend/futomimi
smt: nocturne: hitoshura/sakahagi should be → smt: nocturne: demi-fiend/sakahagi
smt: nocturne: isamu/protagonist should be → smt: nocturne: isamu/demi-fiend

There's also a superfluous date tag:
oct 9 same as → october 9

I'm sure if one looked through the big fandoms like FF and Bleach it'd be possible to shave off more tags...

I'll work on it tonight. Thanks, love.

On the whole tag issue, I'm wondering if the author name tags are that important? Because while browsing the comm, I tend to only search by fandom/pairing, and if I want more by an author I'd check their personal journal? Although that's just me. Dates also seem a little bit superfluous, but less so if you're trying to find the fic that was written for you specifically. (That is -- I know I requested something for feb 15, so if I'm late in checking it's easier to find it again... but in that case, I would hopefully also know what fandom/pairing I requested it for?)

Just my own two cents. ^^;;

Feb. 1st, 2008 04:13 pm (UTC)
Here's two cents on the other side - as a reader, I use the author tag every bit as much, maybe even more so. There are certain writers whose stuff I'll read regardless of fandom, just because they're great writers. I often refer people to this comm based on author, so that's how they find the work.

Also, for people just discovering the comm, and they read a new piece and really like it, odds are they are going to click on the author's tag to see if they've submitted anything else.

I'd really hate to see the author tags go. The date tags? Never once used them, but that's just my own experience.

I tried to use tags this morning, and it wouldn't let me because of the 1000 tag limit. My fault for picking weird pairings, I know... ;-) But I couldn't even put the date on it.
Feb. 2nd, 2008 12:05 am (UTC)
I've removed over 100 tags and it still won't let me add any new ones. WTH?

Fandom Newsletters
On a subject totally unrelated to tagging, I sent a message to the folks at ff_press - the wonderful, all-flavors of "Final Fantasy" daily newsletter on LJ - apprising them of the fact that posting for Round IV began here today, so to keep a lookout for fic/art.

Those of you in fandoms that have similar newslettery type thingies might want to do the same and let them know. Those newsletters are a great way to draw in new readers.
Feb. 2nd, 2008 06:19 pm (UTC)

I just posted my springkink and tried to add some tags (my name, digital devil saga: gale, and february 2)

and got this message: "This would make you exceed your maximum of 1000 tags. Please remove some and try again."

I think your community is out of tag space. What should I do-?
Feb. 2nd, 2008 06:20 pm (UTC)
Whups, see someone's told you already o/ XD NM!

I stuck the tags into Excel, it seems there are currently 1072 tags, and that's why we still can't add any. :/ *tries to weed through it*

Right now, even if we do get rid of the superfluous ones, I don't think it would help that much. :/
Feb. 3rd, 2008 12:14 am (UTC)
Yeah, I tested it out, I managed to weed out around 40 tags but that's still over the 1000 tag limit. :/ Stupid LJ. And having 999 tags really doesn't help at all. (This is why I think author tags should be cut as well, especially since a lot of authors have only one fic listed anyway? But there are those rare authors who've participated often and have 50 fics on the comm...) *whine, moan, and complain* Ideally LJ can be convinced to allow comms to have more than 1000 tags. >_>

O.O New comm layout!
That's the same layout I use for my InsaneJournal fic journal. How come the switch? And how do you find the tags list?

I'm wondering about the tags list myself...

Another question, sorry.

I see some people F-lock their highly mature stuff, and other's do not. Is there a standard? Just don't want to get this place in any trouble.
Feb. 7th, 2008 05:48 am (UTC)
I don't flock my fic here. If I'm asked to, I'll stop posting. I have two beautiful kids, a boy 15, a girl 16.5. I don't ask other people to parent them. Ergo, I don't expect to parent other people's kids. It's a pretty simple concept, really: watch your own kids, and prohibit what you find objectionable.
