Forum Tagging Guide
This guide goes in depth about our forum tagging system! If you are wondering how and when to tag your forum posts, look no further!
What is “tagging,” and why is it used?
Tags are simple descriptors that provide information about the contents of forum threads. On Mycena Cave forums, thread creators use tagging to let others know they may encounter sensitive content within the thread. Players can also choose to disable or enable certain tags, giving them the power to filter certain content from areas such as the recent posts.
What are the tag categories?
Players may tag their threads with any or all of the following tags:
Does every thread need a tag?
No; the majority of threads are untagged, which means that the thread should not contain sensitive content. Untagged threads should be PG13 or lower: if they will, may, or have exceeded this then players are required to add the appropriate tags as soon as possible.
How to Tag a Thread
Thread tagging comes into play when you are creating a new thread that will contain sensitive content or editing an old thread where sensitive content will be introduced.
When to Tag a Thread
Tag your threads for any mature/sensitive content:
What if I want to post potentially sensitive content in someone else’s untagged thread?
What do I do if I want to post sensitive content outside of the forums (e.g. player or pet profiles)?
Why do you allow sensitive content?
Mycena Cave is geared toward creative expression, community, and roleplay. We allow for the respectful exploration and discussion of sensitive content because we believe it is overall more beneficial to our community and society at large than to restrict such content. Exploring sensitive or controversial topics can be socially transformative; it allows one to think critically, express oneself, explore differences, and develop conflict resolution skills. These are all skills that are highly valued in the real world. However, we recognize that viewing such content can be too tough or distasteful for some players, and encourage players to disable any tags containing content which with they would not like to engage.
What should I do if I run into an untagged thread that should be tagged?
Where do I learn more about the content rules?
Content rules are detailed in section 4 of our rules.
My question was not answered in this guide; I’m still confused about something!
