What are Tags?
Tags are those little red words at the bottom left of a vast amount of the wiki pages.
What do they do?
They categorize pages and associate them to one another, and displays the Tag name on the Tag Cloud.
The Tag Cloud can be seen in the left side bar of the wiki. These are the most popular / frequently used Tags. A full Tag Cloud can be seen here or by clicking any Tag.
So…. what's the point?
It's best described by example. Lets say you want to see every Zard in the game. Our monsters are all on one big list, you'd have to check them all. Simply click on the "Zard" tag and it will bring back every page we have chosen to label with the word "Zard". Pretty simple, and pretty useful.
I have a great idea for a Tag! How can I have it added?
If there is a tag you would like to add, change or remove, please post in this thread providing the tag name, description of the tag (what the tag is used for), and the reason for the addition/change/removal. The idea will be discussed and implemented if there is enough positive reaction. Please feel free to give your opinion on other peoples tag suggestions!
Are there any rules to Tags?
As always, follow the AQ3D Wiki Rules.
Other than that, here are a few guidelines:
- Any page can have more than one tag.
- All tags must be a single word, or joined with a hyphen. Use a space and it will be considered 2 or more separate tags.
- Please ensure you spell all tags exactly the same way, as tags with typos are technically a different tag.
- If you don't understand a tag, click it and see what other items have the same tag. Please try not to suggest new tags if a suitable tag exists (eg - don't suggest "Tux" when we have "Suit") unless you think it is necessary.
Most tags are important in their way otherwise they wouldn't exist, but there a few special ones that are tied into other functions on the wiki, namely:
[Image tags still to come]
How do I add/remove Tags?
There is a little red button at the bottom of every page, click that and add / delete the tag you want, then hit save.
The more careful we are with our tags, the better they work. Happy tagging everyone!
