I don't think I agree. Because I role play Shippuden but not the original Naruto. But I know that in this case it makes sense to just put Naruto. I can always just have Shippuden in my title
It would probably just fall under a general "Naruto Fandom" tag since there are the anime seasons, spin-offs, the manga, etc. So you could further define it with your title as you've stated

Hey guys, is it possible to have a GM Guided as either a tag or a sub-genre if it makes sense? Or Choices, Choice Based as a tag? All of my 1x1's in threads are under these genres.
Someone suggested something similar (GM Guided) so right now we're just trying to determine the best tag for it to make it clear what it means for everyone.

I don't know how well it would work, but it would be cool if there were tags that show how often you'd like replies. That way those who like replies often can just look at search threads where that's the case and those who need a long time to reply can find partners who don't mind waiting awhile for replies.

I hope I explained that well enough 😥
The problem with this is that what the tags are and what people actually have as a post frequency may end up mis-matching. While something like "daily" may work, anything after daily would become complicated since some people can define as "a couple times a week" "a few times a week" "twice a week" "three times a week" and so on. This just works better as preference information in a thread over a tag.

Sorta like someone who orders a complicated coffee order on a regular menu item at a Starbucks. XD

Name of Tag: Fantasy
Comments: I know we already have more than one type of fantasy, but I feel like it might be helpful to put in an umbrella-type option as well for those of us that cross over into multiple realms of fantasy. This way, we don't have to waste 3 of our limited tags on trying to be thorough.

Fantasy is actually a current prefix which is selectable. :3

I've seen that, but my problem there is it's not accurate for what I'm posting. I have a searching for partners thread and since my interests reach outside of fantasy, also encompassing several of the other options for prefixes, I have multiple settings as my prefix; it seems the most accurate. But since I am interested in fantasy, I wanted to have that as a tag to draw in those players as well. I guess my worry is that people will glance over it if they see that it's tagged "high fantasy" and they're looking for something else when, in fact, I'm interested in all three.

We'll all see better how this works when it goes live. ^3^ And there's nothing stopping us from changing things afterwards, if something doesn't work out the way we thought it would. We've put a lot of thought into it already, but we're not perfect or prophets so it's always good to be flexible!
Gasp! I know! How about adding an opposing tag, like "Het"?

Overwatch for a sub genre? Not sure if it's popular enough but just wanted to suggest it.
I don't believe it is large enough for a sub-genre nor consistent enough like the ones we currently have which have persisted for a while; like Star Wars has been a big fandom you could say since 1977. Harry Potter (or rather The Wizarding World) is still ongoing since around 1997 and Pokemon since 1996. It could become a tag, but I doubt a sub-genre.

Name of Sub-Genre/Tag/Dice Systems: Comedy
Comments: For those less than serious roleplays with a more jokey, light-hearted tone. I know this is already a tag, but I think it’s deserving of being a sub genre as well. (Like how Cyperpunk is both a sub genre and tag.)

This is a tag. Also not sure cyberpunk was supposed to be a sub-genre. Will have to check later.

The way we're setting it up, things should probably be either a subgenre or a tag to avoid confusing the system (also confusion in the system). I think comedy will probably work better as a tag, given the way the filters will be working.
