Tagging announcements for easier searching of Information

Recommended Posts

  • Root Admin

The announcements are not as easy to find as we would like so we would like to use some tags for announcements. However we will need them tagged and also need to decide on a good set of tags for the announcements.

I need someone to organise a project to decide on a good set of initial tags that can be used to tag up each announcement. Please apply here if you wish to run this project.

This will involve going over the announcements with a number of helpers and collecting an "initial set" of tags. You might decide at the end that we shouldnt have a fixed list but that will be up to you to present your conclusion to me. You will not be reviewing all announcements yourself, but working with people who will jointly review them with you and agreeing a "fixed" list. You will discuss the list with me and then we can begin tagging them (potentially with a new interface).

If anyone wishes to help, not as an organiser, but as a tagger, etc. Please also post here.

I imagine we will have a set of "core" tags (rules, punishment, role, feature, Marind Bell, Loreroot,  etc) and maybe a set of less generic tags which are less likely to be used.


Anyone who has ideas about good tags for announcements, please post the tags here and an announcement you think it would be good to tag with.

Some of these would be nice to filter/blacklist, like Author:System or Tag:Redundant.

We need one related to bugs and bug fixes; which could be a subset of “system” family tags.

i also think that roles should include alliance tags, unless people disagree. 
Also unless there used to be way more updates about lands that I missed I think we could group each land announcement into a “Land” category. Like the announcement that NC is closed again would go there.
