I would think some basic stuff like fantasy, science fiction, and the like. Maybe 'open' 'closed' and 'always open'?

For genres, I'd suggest

  • Fantasy
  • Sci-fi
  • Horror
  • Fandom based
  • Mystery
  • Action
  • Modern world

That way, while tagging something as "fantasy" is really broad, adding a tag like "modern world" makes it clearer that we're not talking about a Lord of the Rings-style RP.

Also some trigger tags or indicators of the expected content, like

  • Gore
  • (Excessive) swearing
  • Romance
  • Angst

Urban fantasy, then. And High Fantasy. Low Fantasy. And Romance fantasy.

EDIT: I'd also suggest Academy and animal role-play, based on some RPs I've seen around.

Best Days for RPing
Fri - Sun

Attitude | +
"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, gift, or skill. It will make or break a company...a church...a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes. "
~ Charles Swindoll

Maybe for genres:
  • Action
  • Adventure
  • Comedy
  • Erotic
  • Medieval
  • Mystery
  • Original Characters (OC)
  • Realistic (Or current time?)
  • Thriller
  • Victorian

And for trigger tags (Good idea Fearless!):
  • Abusive Themes
  • Alcoholism
  • Animal Cruelty
  • Cannibalism
  • Child Abuse (Oh the # this one would have >.>)
  • PTSD
  • Racism
  • Self-harm/Suicide
  • Slavery
  • Torture

Tried not to do too many repeats but I think some are in there.

I was only thinking of the cave (and basically all the tumblr tags ever)--though you're probably right. *edits out*

Yeah, with the cave, the mature content is a given so we don't really need trigger tags of that nature.

Though, just as an aside...pedophilia...? I'm sincerely hoping no one breaches any sort of sexual content below the age of sixteen as that is the age of consent.

As an aside, where it is in the cave rules, it'll be taken care of should anything breach that barrier:
Eferhilda wrote:
a.ii)We do not, nor have we ever, condoned under-aged sexual consorting. Where the legal age of consent here is sixteen, any character relations of that nature will need to remain sixteen or over. Anything under that will be removed without warning.

Hm, you could be right. Though I think some people might still tag in the cave if they are planning on pushing the content boundaries to its limits or something.

Also, in regards to the pedo thing, I believe there have been some (one) who had characters that fantasized about having a younger partner or something so I suppose it would only be for them. Nevertheless, I will get rid of that nasty too.

Edit: Good catch--thanks for setting me straight.

Nupe, that hasn't happened on these boards.

But, in terms of tagging the threads, the threads aren't necessarily for everyone, just like the level of graphic detail they write isn't for everyone. If you choose to read it, you're acknowledging that the thread could hold content you may not want to read or may be uncomfortable. To read it will be at your own peril. I don't think we need trigger tags.

Genre-based, however, has always been a want that we've heard. You can see, right off, where the sci-fi is held, or supernatural, historical and the like as our search feature hadn't included that. You'd have to wade through a plethora of interest checks and OOCs, going off of titles alone to see if you could find something you were craving.

Especially since, not everyone likes to just add brackets with (sci-fi) or what have you to their rp titles. I don't often do it myself because it messes with my OCD, but otherwise the tag thing is to help people narrow down their rp searches and get to threads they want to get to faster. Content and such is already predetermined due to settings and board separations.

Fanfic

Something of that nature should be a given, don't you think. that way those RPs an Int. Chks that are based in worlds already existing can be singled out for those who enjoy that type of thing

It makes sense; We've not questioned genre tags. haha More the trigger warning comprehensive list Sir Sam up there gave.

Fanfics makes sense, we think. It is on the list for adding. In fact, I'll come up with a list of those we'll be adding so that people can see what's been added to the list and can think of new things to add.

True true. I just went cray thinking of tumblr ha. I wonder if it would it be too chaotic if one tried to tag too many things. Will there be a tag limit, such as 3-4 tags or will they be out of the way and non-bothersome?

People can tag things with more than one tag, as many as they want so you can get very detailed in exactly what your rp could contain.
