Please do not use this page for the time being! The rules for editing tags on Daily Kos were changed today by the site administrators, and following the instructions below is no longer safe!

Thank you very much for your assistance in aiding the DailyKos Tag Cleanup Project; we will let you know when or if editing "bad tags" is once again allowed, or when we have redesigned this page so that only those tags that are safe to change are listed below. — Sardonyx 21:05, 12 September 2007 (PDT)




We are keeping Completed Tag Cleanup Jobs here so we can recheck from time to time to make sure the bad tags don't creep back in. See below for a more complete explanation. The Archive pages contain the original jobs and a fuller explanation of what was done and why; the jobs are ordered chronologically by completion date, the earliest completed at the top of page 1.

See Archive versions of the original tags jobs (with completed information) at: Tag:Completed Cleanup Jobs Archive Page 1 | Tag:Completed Cleanup Jobs Archive Page 2 | Tag:Completed Cleanup Jobs Archive Page 3 | Tag:Completed Cleanup Jobs Archive Page 4



This page has a comprehensive list of bad tags from completed tagging jobs that have already been remapped to good tags once, but which could be reused by a diarist who doesn't know better. So these tags need to be rechecked from time to time.

When using this page, note that the hyperlinked tag to the left has already been remapped/fixed, and generally to the tag or tags on the right (if not deleted entirely). Always check to be sure who or what the diary is referring to; there could be an exception to the overwhelming majority that would use the replacement tag to the right.
