No, wait, I'm not done on the topic of tags.

Everything you need to know about AO3's author-freedom-is-paramount tagging experiment: The canonical tag "Fanfiction" is used 910 times.

No, wait, I'm not done ranting.
"Slash": 12835 despite the fact that the plumbing on the participants in any sex acts is a top-level fic category in the archive.
"To Read": 5584
"Unread": 2036

Mmmmmmffggasdfadfasffhfhfhfh.

Today I am writing the core of the subscription feature. When in need of procrastination from that, I'm adding a few tags at a time to the canned taxonomy. I am getting hard-core about tags. If something is longer than one word, I stare at it extra-hard. If it is not a Big Thing in fanfic, I stare at it hard and ask myself if it is better off being searched for rather than browsed using a tag. For example, pancakes & waffles. Despite what I said yesterday, I think those are better off searched for. Topes, on the other hand-- every darn trope needs to be a tag. If pancakes were a trope, they would be in instantly. Sadly they are not.

Mmm, pancakes.

I have a week off between jobs. I shall see how much I can get done in that week with its large blocks of uninterrupted time.
