For reasons as yet inexplicable the delicious site is not showing the correct number of tags in the right hand filters - you get the correct results when you filter by a tag though.

The beautiful and dedicated scribblesinink  has taken over tagging the newsletter and is doing a magnificent job - more hands would make it easier to stay up to date! If anyone has some time to help out it would be much appreciated.

Looking for volunteers

Last year, black_samvara began an awesome project of tagging all Supernatural fic that gets posted in the daily spnnewsletter into a delicious account. She's done an amazing amount of work setting up a nifty tagging system that makes it easy to find fic by character, pairing, author, or whatever tickles your fancy.

However, it's a bit much for one person (or even two) to keep up. Which makes sense, because while it's not really difficult now that the system's up and running, the SPN fandom is very prolific in producing fic. We're currently about fifty newsletters behind, and that's hundreds of stories!

However, many hands make light work, as the saying goes. So, we're looking for a couple of folk willing to help out. If we can get a group of people together so that everyone has to take on tagging duty just every few days, it's really not that much work at all. And we can keep an amazing fic resource up and running, and up-to-date.

Got questions? Leave a comment.

Interested? Read more information and leave a comment! We'll get back to you as soon as possible, and more detailed instructions will follow shortly.

Tagging the Supernatural Newsletter on delicious

Supernatural_fic detailed tagging information. Taken from this post back in September 2007.

The Rough Plan:
  1. Tag all fic in spnnewsletter including RPF; will not be tagging news, meta or vids etc.
  2. URLs will be cleaned of extras such as #cutid, ?style=mine, ?format=light etc.
  3. Only one instance of a story told in parts will be tagged. I would like, in an ideal world to link to a master post that links to all chapters of a fic.
    ** I don't automatically ignore a fic if it has 'part 2' on it - I check to see if it's already tagged by searching Supernatural_fic by Author and then I ignore it.
  4. Authors who have since deleted their journals / left LJ will be included for stats (tag = LJ:Deleted).
  5. Warnings such as deathfic, darkfic, rape, evil!sam, girl!Dean and mpreg will go in the Description/Notes field if noted in spnnewsletter.
  6. Put the spnnewsletter edition number in the Description Title field (it's tidier) of the last fic tagged on that edition.
