    Er, are you sure you did it right, Scrittore? I'm procrastinating from writing and I went ahead and did the first 14 pages (sorted by rating), and the remaining pages look relatively untouched.

    EDIT: asked around IRC, and apparently some people can see the tags and others can't. I have no idea what's going on with that. Regardless, I tagged the first 20 pages in the bin if you sort by rating. Hopefully it shows up.

    Most are, some aren't.

    Bump, because I just tagged five stories in For Review with their correct pairing tags. Tagging isn't optional folks, it's a MANDATORY part of the posting format. See here.

    As a reminder: We tag Harry centric pairings, using the template Harry/FirstName.

    So if a story has a Harry/Fleur pairing, the correct tag is Harry/Fleur. If it's Harry/Bella, the tag becomes Harry/Bella. Very straightforward, with only a few exceptions (e.g. Harry/Tonks). If you are unsure, look at the first post of this thread, it has all pairings listed. If it isn't on there, add a tag anyway, sticking to Harry/FirstName, and make a post here, so that we know that a new pairing has been added.

    Thank you.

    Can we get from a member of staff confirmation that tagging is mandatory and not just Sesc's pet project? The link Sesc provided doesn't really state it. "Be sure to tag your post!" doesn't really sound like an order.

    (Personally I feel the thing is mostly pointless additional red tape. Who actually searches by pairing? But whatever).

    If so, is it just pairing tags that are mandatory? Or also author? Genre?

    I'm going to guess that its optional, considering that not every story has a pairing. If it has one, and you know for certain that it is what the author said, tag it. Leave it be until confirmed, I'd say. Tags can be added later >_>

    Hey, What if the pairing has Fem!Harry instead of Harry? Like, Fem!Harry/Tom Riddle.

    In that case, it's not on this site.

    Well, that's actually a valid question. We'll think about the moment we'll need it. At the moment we don't need it.

    KrzaQ, that story is here. There aren't any Fem!Harry/'X' pairings, because that story falls under Harry/'X"

    Could someone take a screenshot and show me how you're supposed to add tags to a new thread? I haven't been able to do it since the new forum software. I'm aware it should be under the thread title, but there's just nothing there:

    Not adblock - just tried turning it off and there was no change.

    I think it's a permissions thing. When I click your link it says "You do not have permission to view this page or perform this action."
