Assigning genres

Hello, there seems to be some confusion in my household about this issue. Is it a good thing to put both 1+ literary genre tags, and 1+ geographical genre tags? I haven't been doing the geographical tags much, only when I thought it was a significant facet of the game. Is someone going to have to come clean up after me and add these geographical tags? Am I misusing them? Just looking for some guidance here. cendare 13:20, 28 September 2007 (PDT)

For several games, it makes sense to add one or more literary genre tags, one or more geographical genre tags, or some combo of both. And for several other games, it's not all that obvious which literary (or geographical) genre tags should be used, if any. If you're just putting in literary genres, well, yeah, probably someone will eventually add a geographical genre tag later. But that's fine. Always assume that someone will come in and edit after you. (Almost all the games in the Porn/Erotica category have no other genre markings yet, for example.) The reason why I created the "genre wanted" tag was so someone would be able to do just want you're doing: adding at least one genre to a page that doesn't have any. One genre is lots better than none. Perfection and completeness can come much much later. :) -- David Welbourn 21:51, 28 September 2007 (PDT)
Thanks for the input -- I am going to try to be conscious and add geographical tags more often, since it sounds like that is closer to what is intended. (On the other hand, I'm not going to sweat it if I can't find a good one, e.g., Vicious Cycles.) Thanks! -- cendare 16:48, 29 September 2007 (PDT)
