Hello everyone!

I just wanted to say how excited I am that we've been getting a few more posts lately!

Since there was a request to add some tags, I went through the previous posts (all not-quite-fifty of them) and tagged them up a bit too - there are a LOT of wonderful pictures, and people should be able to find them. I hope nobody minds the new tags I've added, and I would also like some suggestions, mostly on what to call stuff.

1. I named one tag "mitts/wristwarmers", but I've included gloves and mittens and such as well, plus it's not a pretty name anyway. Pithy alternatives?

2. There are some projects that aren't scarves/shawls/sweaters/socks. Like a coffee-pot cosy, cat bed, mini sock keyrings, fish, stuffed animals... Do they all go under an "other" tag?

3. There are a few fan themed posts - Dalek hat, Vulcan hat, and a mini sock with the Death Eater skull. Would there be interest in a "fannish" tag, or is that just me being too intent on making everything findable?

4. Would it be helpful to add categories to the tags? Something like "type: scarves" and "technique: lace"? That way the tag list wouldn't just be alphabetical and chaotic anymore...

Apologies for the pictureless post - I'll be posting my pink yarn noodles lace stole soon!

I'm new - both to the comm and knitting in general - but personally I think the more organised and findable things are, the better. Mileage varies but for myself, if a comm isn't organised and things are hard to find I'm not likely to spend a lot of time there because the frustration isn't worth it.

So I guess what I'm trying to say here is the clearer the tags are the better. I'm all for a 'fannish' tag, maybe 'household' or 'toys' tags as well for things like tea cosies and so on. I also think a breakdown by category like type and technique would be a good idea, I think it would make it easier for anyone looking for those things in particular.

1. I would go with Handwear. :)

2. Other works for me.

3. Fannish is a great idea for a tag.

4: Also a good idea. But it looks like that's already been implemented, so. :)
