Tagging Guide

Tagging Guide

Tagging your articles is an important part of article creation. It helps users find specific kinds of articles and it also helps staff archive articles effectively. This page is a guide on how to properly tag your articles.

If you are unsure of how to tag your article, contact a site staff member.

Do not create tags that are not on this list. Contact a staff member if you believe a new tag should be created.
