About Tags

Since the correct usage of tags is paramount for selection in widgets, I put together a short list of tags here, and what they are intended for. This doesn't mean you can't or shouldn't invent new tags, just check first if your intention is already here, please.

If you don't want to add to the sorted table, just append new tags and a short description in plaintext at the end. Someone else will add it ....

Widget Selection

Keep in mind that it is only possible to select for the existence of tags, i.e. there's no logical NOT in the widget-selection possible. ex.: . select all Members of Tagon's Toughs : "characters, toughs" . select all Members of Tagon's Toughs, who are retired : "characters, toughs, retired" . select all Members of Tagon's Toughs, who died : "characters, toughs, dead" but . select all Members of Tagon's Toughs, who are neither retired nor dead : "characters, toughs, active"

While the distinction isn't really made in the Comic, it would seem prudent to follow best practices. ;->. And we can always pull grunts and nco together, but dividing them later isn't that easy.
