Standard Tags - alpha list

From dKosopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Updated: 9-28-2007

The following is a list of more than 1000 frequently used Standardized tags for Daily Kos diaries. They are the content index to the site. Whenever possible these are the tags that should be used. As additional tags are used 30 or more times, the Tag Librarians will check them for redundancy. Tags for new concepts or topics will be added periodically.

Where two or more words for the same issue are used for tags, the one with the most usage is listed – often the difference is that one version is plural and the other singular.


Omitted from this list:
Many names of people who are the subject of diaries. They will all appear in a new list. To check spelling use http://meta.dkosopedia.com/tags/search/
Incorrect/bad tags like “bush”, “cheney” “President Bush”, “2008 Presidential Election” “midterm elections” etc.

Series Tags can be found in the FAQ at http://www.dkosopedia.com/wiki/FAQ#Ongoing_diary_series
State and election tags like: California, Texas, Ohio, Connecticut, etc. and OH-10, TX-23, SD-Sen, CT-Sen, etc. These are legitimate tags, but make this list longer than needed to be useful.

House and Senate legislation tags, like H.R.4900-109 and H.Res.333-110 (note no spaces) [[1]], are legitimate and also make this list longer than needed to be useful.

Proper nouns will soon be moved to a new page. Spelling can be checked using the tag search tool: http://meta.dkosopedia.com/tags/search/
