I got a message from someone the other day about starting up a new tag for eren/levi stuff because of the shitty spam. I think it’s a good idea overall, and something we could genuinely benefit from, but we’d need to come to a consensus as a fandom on what tag to use without necessarily spreading the word to the spammers as well.
The tag suggested by the person who sent me the message only has a couple of things in it, and the first is levi/mikasa because the tag could pertain to them too. And there are similar issues with other potential tags
So we need something readily identifiable as eren/levi without it being something that could be used as another ship’s tag, or something that would just be tagged as a regular thing on completely unrelated text posts.
Here are a few things I’ve seen other people tag them as before
- Humanity’s OTP
- Humanity’s strongest OTP
- Short Temper
Anything that’s an amalgamation of their two names can be found easily by spammers, and anything that’s not an isolated term that refers to just them isn’t going to be 100% eren/levi (I’m avoiding the e r e r i word in case spammers search thee term as well)
So maybe something like “#short temper otp” or something along those lines, where it’s obviously them but not something people will tag by accident for other things. Even #shortemper or #otpereri or I don’t know
I’m going to use an example here from another fandom of sorts, but the #Derren Brown tag was spammed and kind of destroyed a while back and a few people banded together to create the #dvbrown tag which as far as I’m aware is still kept successfully spam-free.
Anyway, any suggestions are welcome and I think once there’s some kind of general consensus, then people with a lot of followers who support the ship (fanfic writers, artists, translators, whatever) should post or reblog something about the new tag without mentioning any of the current most popular tags, since those are monitored by spammers
Basically we need a whole new tag, one that’s completely clean where we can start afresh and not worry about shitty spam. So if you’re going to make a suggestion, try looking at the tag first to make sure there’s nothing already there.
This doesn’t sound like a bad idea- anybody want to chime in on this?
Is your AO3 username AlmostApples in French or am I mistaken...?
Ahaha, it absolutely is. (I enjoy it because it’s alliterative in both languages.)
Oh no, I got this for a gift and I’ve been meaning to watch but I’m still hurting my way through samflam so idk now!
It’s so good.
It’s so incredibly good.
It’s just also exactly as morally ambiguous as the setting and premise demands and filled with sympathetic characters whose survival you can’t feel absolutely certain of.
Michiko & Hatchin is the cutest, funniest, most badass and most decisively heartbreaking show I have ever seen.
Some of you may be interested to know that I also purchased some shampoo-out temporary hair colour in black, as well as a long white kerchief that I’ve discovered can be serviceably fashioned into a rather convincing cravat.
