Why am I 'Creating' a tag?
I spent the morning sifting through Tag Spam reports. One of the responses I receive most from those posting under #introduceyourself tags is that they are posting information and guides for new users.
The problem with that approach is that these posts can bury user introductions. So I went hunting for a new tag and found that #minnow-guide isn't being used.
When Can You Use It?
While I specifically would like to see guides posted here it can be used by anyone who publishes a post that contains information relevant to new users.
Who Gave Me the Authority to Create a Tag?
No one. Tags are community property and while I don't own the tag I am claiming it for a specific community use and I intend to monitor it for abuse. This tag is somewhat subjective so only completely irrelevant posts will be commented on and warned against Tag Abuse or Tag Spam as @steemcleaners defines it in their yet unpublished updated Abuse Guide.
Hehe... Yeah, I'm shamelessly plugging the guide I'm working on and will post in the next day or two under @steemcleaners.
Why am I Announcing it?
Because I need your help! Our community tags are sorely lacking in diversity and relevancy. In order for a tag to gain popularity it has to be promoted & used! I'd appreciate everyone who sees a post that is relevant to the tag leave a comment to the contributor suggesting it.
While I'm sorely lacking in time with my other work I really would like to see someone take the idea and run with it. Create a 'go to' tag for minnows and new users to find information in one place. After the recent phishing attack it would be a great tag for users to find information.
It would also be great if someone who has the time to publish a list of the best guides contributed for the week. Maybe someone who is a member of or familiar with other minnow projects like @minnowbooster or @minnowsupport... hint, hint.
Thoughts & Comments
Okay... I'm headed back to work. Tell me what you think of the idea, how I can get users involved, or if you think I'm wasting my time.
Lets create one relevant and useful tag with a purpose for our community!
