Mod post: in which I say "tags" so often it stops looking like a word

8:01 pm - 05/09/2012
Since our community was upgraded to a paid account (hopefully LJ will soon make such upgrades unnecessary for us), I recently went through and added a ton of new tags. Yay! However, there is a catch. See, tags with zero uses are invisible to non-moderators.

What does this mean? You can add a tag for, say, Guinea or Estonia. But only if you know the tag exists, because you have to add it manually instead of selecting from the list. I... do not know why LJ decided to make this the way it is, but there you have it.

Now, I did go back and tag a few of the requested entries, which means those tags are visible (including the long-awaited "men suck" tag). But since not all of them are, here is a list of the current 0-use tags - remember these have to be used as is, so that means entering "trinidad and tobago" instead of "trinidad & tobago", for instance.

angola, antigua and barbuda, azerbaijan, bahamas, belize, benin, bhutan, botswana, brunei, bulgaria, burkina faso, burundi, cameroon, cape verde, central african republic, chad, comoros, croatia, cyprus, côte d'ivoire, democratic republic of the congo, djibouti, dominica, dominican republic, east timor, ecuador, el salvador, equatorial guinea, eritrea, estonia, ethiopia, fiji, gabon, grenada, guatemala, guinea, guinea-bissau, guyana, hong kong, jamaica, kosovo, kuwait, laos, latvia, lesotho, luxembourg, macau, madagascar, malawi, maldives, mali, mauritania, mauritius, moldova, montenegro, morocco, mozambique, namibia, nicaragua, niger, omar, papua new guinea, paraguay, portugal, qatar, republic of the congo, romania, saint kitts and nevis, saint lucia, saint vincent and grenadines, samoa, seychelles, sierra leone, singapore, slovenia, solomon islands, suriname, swaziland, são tomé and príncipe, tajikistan, tanzania, the gambia, togo, tonga, trinidad and tobago, turkmenistan, uruguay, uzbekistan, vanutau, zambia

+ feel free to use this post to request any new tags you want, if they are sufficiently useful they will be added.

Also, there are the "film" and "films" tags, the "republican party" and "gop" tags, and "won't someone please think of the child!" and "somebody please think of the children!" tags. I'm sure there are other repeats, but those are just the few that popped out at me looking through the tags.

Yeah I especially think the "republican party/republicans/GOP" tags are going to have to be cleaned up, as well as "democratic party/democrats". Especially when you consider that just plain Democrats or Republicans could refer to lots of parties worldwide. That's gonna be a bigger project though, since those tags have been in use since the community inception.

"won't someone please think of the child!" and "somebody please think of the children!" tags.

This one always annoys me when I'm tagging stuff. :/
