I suggest putting a post with all current title acronyms ([GO, M, TP, etc.]) in a sticky at the top of the board so people know what they're looking at before they open a thread to have a read. If there's already one there, then I suggest making it more noticeable.

It should also be included in the OOC board of the Arena section, because sometimes people just don't spot these things.

Can I ask why? The tags are solely for my benefit while tracking and judging the contests. What they stand for doesn't much matter in hindsight or for anyone reading them. They're just battles much like any other thread in there.

I'm suggesting that people may be curious about what the tags mean, and could easily jump to the wrong conclusion regarding the use of the tags in the titles. They may also want to add their own tags to describe what kind of thing is happening in each fight thread, whether it be a casual fight, or something that ends up being an important character-based plot.

They might also want to warn people if there's mature themes, like a lot of gore or very descriptive dismemberment involved.

Either way, a thread describing what each tag means would be helpful, if only to prevent newbie confusion.

All sorted for you, Ghorr. Sorry for the delay, Halloween Sanctum madness rather took over!

Thanks for the suggestion. :smile:
