i think we should put these in chronological order. there aren't enough to be put in alphabetical.--Skeeta 00:42, 11 December 2006 (CST)


There are many articles about the strange tags (such as Hamster, Llama, and Evolution) that contain very little information on how they are connected to the LG15 series, but rather give the Wikipedia definition of the word. Are these pages really necessary?--Jonpro 13:08, 6 January 2007 (CST)

If no one objects, I will probably erase the pages about the strange tags and instead have them redirect to Category:YouTube tags. The strange tags pages are some of the oldest on LGPedia and don't seem to serve a useful purpose.--Jonpro 14:47, 27 February 2007 (CST)
I'm fine with deleting a lot of those strange tag pages, but my preference would be to keep Category:Strange tags as a subcategory of Category:YouTube tags. I understand the rationale for deleting the pages, but see no need to delete the category. --JayHenry 15:16, 27 February 2007 (CST)

What now?

I remember Brucker wondering why I deleted the content on some of the strange tag pages. It was because of this discussion, but I'm wondering what everyone thinks should be done with this category. I don't think that {{tag}} has been added to any of these pages because the bot only did that to pages in the Category:YouTube tags. Should {{tag}} be expanded to indicate that a tag is a "strange tag"? Should the format of the pages stay pretty much the same or should it change? Finally, how do we classify what exactly makes a tag "strange"? Sorry, more questions than answers, but I'm really not sure what to do here.--Jonpro 11:53, 20 March 2007 (CDT)

If I beg will someone...

...offer their thoughts on this issue? As I've said above, I don't really see much point for these pages. But I'd like to hear if others think we should try to improve them, leave them alone, delete them, a mixture of these?--Jonpro 22:35, 17 April 2007 (CDT)

Aw, sorry Jonpro. Here's my 2c. Though most strange tags remain completely random, some have garnered meaning over time. Perhaps the best way to deal with this is to move the content of those articles into a Strange tags article. We open the article with an intro saying that what a strange tag is, and then we mention the significance of those tags which have proven to mean something. We keep Category Strange tags and write a blurb saying "For the full article, go to "Strange tags". I wouldn't want to altogether delete those pages since some are kind of notable, like aphid and tachyon--even kiwi means something, even if at first it seems strange.

What if there was one page for all the strange tags that seem insignificant, and then separate pages for all of the explainable strange tags. All the tags in the category without their own page could link to the insignificant strange tag page. Sort of like the minor character page? --truncatedslinky I don't know what time it is.

One page

I'm thinking we should just merge all of these pages into one and weed out all of the ones that are irrelevant. I noticed that Zoey added a link to Strange tag on the Theories and Speculation page so maybe that's what you were thinking too.--Jonpro 14:05, 10 May 2007 (CDT)
