Acciodhr Requesting people w/time. :P  
Hi, sorry for spamming your flist with acciodhr left. Cut for space. :P


I am thinking of condensing tags. If I do, these are the ones I will be likely to delete:

Side-pairings: Do people use this tag?
Chapters: With WIPs, this gets a little neglected. Additionally, I don't think it is a real estimate on how long a story is. e.g. A chapter might only be 500 words.

This version of accioDHR will allow videos to be recced. This will require new tags, so, can anyone suggest any tag that might need to be applied to videos only?

Help needed!

I am going through accioDHR (reccing site) and there is a lot of excess: users, reviews, recs.

There are a lot of reviews which aren't substantial (e.g. "The link is dead!") and there are recs which are clearly the reccer's own work (often disguised but made obvious later); there's a rule against reccing your own work, so! :P

So whilst coding the back-end, I am thinking of doing something like this:

- purging user accounts; accounts with no recs, ratings, reviews, bookshelves will be deleted
- removing unsubstantial reviews
- removing "bad" recs

To put it into context: 530 recs, ~1110 users, ~1400 reviews.

The job, basically:

- go through all the recs
- - flag up bad recs
- - flag up bad reviews

Eventually, I will only add the "good" recs/users/reviews/ratings etc.

If you have some spare time, and wouldn't mind helping out, please comment or PM me your e-mail. ♥ NB: we'd split it up so you wouldn't actually be looking at 530 recs. xD

Thank you!

I like wip tags but the status can be temporary or permanent.

How much tech know-how is involved? I might be able to help.

Good point about WIP tag. I wonder if an Abandoned tag would be ok, or if we already have that... Not sure.


Tech know-how... well, right now, it's like this:

http://i34.tinypic.com/2606emv.gif This is user-purging.

So, if you can click a button, you can dodge a ball x) x)

I'm trying to think of a good way to do it for the rest of the site though. I have flag buttons on a list of recs, but then you can't tell if a rec is genuine or not just by looking at the list (a list of recs w/all their information = browser death, I am sure). So, I have individual flag buttons on member profiles and recs. x)

SAME deal with reviews. It might be too...comical to go through every 530 recs and look through allllll the reviews at the same time. But I'm not sure if reading a review w/o looking at what it is reviewing would be good either x)

I love the side-pairings tag! I've enjoyed the whole web site very much.

I actually use the side-pairing tag a lot, but it is a YMMV sort of situation. Since I'm a big fan of another ship, I actively look for that pairing in my dmhg fic, cause I'm greedy like that.

You should probably do whatever will help you get the site up/managable in the best way possible. Whatever tag you may suggest getting rid of, I'm sure people would come out of the woodwork to say "I use that!" :-P

E, I can help you with this. I'd love to actually.
The bad reviews really bother me and I can help out with user purging as well. Email me about it?

I've just invited you to the comm! However, I decided to just go with an automation tool to the user purging, so that's OK. I think I'm going to go through all the recs too. I don't want to go through tags but... something like that. ;-;
