Welcome to everyone who's joined recently, it's lovely to have you in the community.
As a reminder to those who've been here a while, and an explanation for those who've joined more recently, we have tags set up for trennels

To use them just type whichever tags you want to use in the Tags box, separated by commas if you use more than one. (This is how it works for the LJ post an entry page; I don't know about using posting clients, so anyone who does, please comment.)
Alternatively you can tag a post once it's up, by clicking on 'Edit tags' in the list of commands underneath a post on the main page, or the 'Edit tags' button in the toolbar at the top of an individual post.
Everyone is encouraged to tag posts appropriately, not just the original poster, so if you think a post is missing appropriate tags, please just add them yourself, whether it's an old or new entry. And if a lengthy discussion of a new subject develops in the comments, feel free to add a tag about that too.
Members of the community can't create new tags, just use those on the list, but if you think any extra ones are needed, please comment to this post and thewhiteowl
or I may add them to the list. If you think a post's been wrongly tagged, then again let one of us know and we can change it.
The point of tags is to help people find interesting stuff in the trennels
archives, whether that's fanfiction announcements, discussions of a particular character or book, answers to queries, or anything else. If you click on one of the tags in the list on the main page, it will take you to all the entries with that tag.
And if you do find something of interest to you in the archives, and would like to add to the discussion, we suggest you make a new post, and link back to the earlier post/comments. How to create a link is explained here
Please do have a look at the main community page once your post is up, to check the html etc has all come out correctly. For example, bad links (and we've all done it) tend to mess with other people's friends pages as they are often rather long, and only the original poster can edit a post.
Finally, could I remind people who don't have an lj/aren't logged in to sign their comments? Otherwise they all just appear as from 'Anonymous', and following a conversation can get a bit difficult.
