[mod post] Suggestion Post  
Do you have any questions or concerns about the community? Any suggestions on how we can better run it? Ideas for things that we could impliment? Maybe you want to know why we do something the way that we do? Or just an opinion you want us to consider? This is the post to leave it in! We run this community for you, and we would like to know the things our members find do or don't work for it, and how you feel we could improve our running of the place.

We can't say that we'd be able to do all, or even any of the suggestions that may come up, but we will definitely consider and discuss any that may arise! We're always trying to think of ways that we can improve, but please bear in mind that this is a huge community designed to be a place for anyone and everyone to come to, post in, read from, and share their fanworks, and as always with large communities, there is no way to please everyone.

But first and foremost, we cannot better ourselves, this community, and the way we run it unless our members tell us what it is they want to see (or not see)! And this is where you come in. So if you have anything you want to say to the mods, to suggest or to know; if there's a question you would like us to answer, or just something you think that we could add to the comm, please comment to this post! If we can't see what you think about something, we can't do anything about it :(

All comments will be screened and kept confidential!
And because posts get easily overtaken here, the link to this one can be found in the link list on the community main page, along with links to every other important post you may need! :)

We hit the 1000 tag limit some time ago, and we're currently working on implimenting a new system in which we can continue to re-tag (if you're interested, you can find the specific posts about tagging a little further back under the 'mod post' tag). Because we hit this limit, we cannot actually add any new tags. Before, us mods took it in turns to tag all fics every day, as you would see if you ever had to go months back through the community. But as soon as we have finished rearranging the memories and removed certain tags to allow for new ones to be added, we will go back and tag the months we have missed, and from that point onwards allow members to tag their own posts!

I hope this has helped, and thank you for commenting! This is exactly why we made this post ^^

Again, our new way of archiving was mentioned in a mod post awhile back, and our new system will involve a different way of tagging things! We had author tags originally because there were not as many new writers popping up when we first started, and because a lot of people actually do use author tags over pairing tags! But we will be placing all the authors within the memories instead (once we have cleaned out the memories, which is what we're currently working on), leaving the tags themselves for pairings, etc! We reached the limit once before, and that time we did consolidate a lot of the tags we'd been using down to the more common ones that we currently still have!

And of course, with so many members here, we have to bear in mind that some members will use pairings/characters to find fics, whilst many others will use authors instead, and we have to try and cater to everyones wants!

I appreciate your suggestions and your commenting! Hopefully now you and others can see that this isn't an issue we're ignoring, but are, and have been for some time, working on fixing! :)
