Comment on Five Things Julia Santos Said

  1. i'm wondering how i can get character tags and relationship tags marked common in the Ace Combat archive so it would be easier to filter them into the tags

      You can send an according request to the Tag Wrangling team by going to the page of the tag you think should be made canon (e.g. https://archiveofourown.org/tags/Trigger (Ace Combat))* and click on the link "Technical Support and Feedback" at the bottom of the page. The Support team will forward your request to the Tag Wranglers then.

      *note that this is just an example as this particular tag is not yet used often enough to be considered common. (I couldn't find the info right now, neither in the FAQ nor in the tag wranglig guidelines, but iirc a tag needs to be used by at least 5 different users for tagging one of their works to be considered "common")

                  I believe you meant to write "canon" (not "common")?

                  While the Tag Wranglers can canonize tags, they can not make them common.

                  A tag is considered "common" when enough users use it to tag their works. A common tag which is not ambiguous and not a synonym to an already existing canonical tag with the same meaning can be made canon by the Tag Wranglers (iirc).

                  Maybe Julia or another Tag Wrangler can give us more info about the requirements which must be met for them to be able to canonize a tag?
