Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hello, Hello, Hello wonderful STV Members!!!  Just posting some information on tagging..........some you'll already know perhaps and some are some new changes.

The tags themselves will be typed the same, all in one "smooshed together" word.  LOL  (ie: gkd
or autumnsplendor).

Just use the first names of the illustrators of each stamp set you use, even if it's just a sentiment
from one of the sets.  (ie: gina)

 

If you use any image or sentiment from any of the Stamp TV Kits then you can also add this tag...... stvkit.

We also will use tags for the GKD exclusive dp.....so for example if you used the Blizzard paper you would use the tag  blizzarddp.

For challenges here on STV use the same format.  (ie: stvsketchgk1)

 

The "GKD" tag will be used only on cards/projects that are exclusively Gina K. Designs.  The GKD gallery is meant to showcase only Gina K. so we want to keep it easy to search
through for the members who would like to browse all GKD images and
sentiments.  If you have combined Gina K. stamps with other stamps (which is just fine and fun to see!!!!) please still use the illustrator or artist name and the name of the stamp, just don't add the GKD tag.

 

If you've used Pure Luxury cardstock or GKD ribbon, you can include those details in the description when you upload your photo, but we won't have actual tags for those types of items.

 

If you'd like to keep your photos
organized, you can use "Albums", that will show up for your groupings
but not like the tags.  It's a simple way to see at a glance what's in
your own gallery  So if you'd like to tag your cards with your name, the
Album is the place to do it and not the actual tags.  You can have as
many albums as you'd like I believe!  LOL

We're keeping our tags relevant to Stamp TV.  When the tags are clicked on, anything that carries that tag will pop up in a separate "gallery".  So we are removing tags from other companies and things like that.  Any stamped project is welcome in our galleries, but we don't feel the need to have specific galleries for non GKD items.  Same thing with outside challenges....you are absolutely welcome to upload here for outside challenges and even combine an STV challenge with an outside challenge, but we won't have separate tags for those outside challenges.

Also for simplicity's sake we're removing some tags that describe techniques, supplies, etc.  These are so numerous and with so many various possibilities it's just time-consuming to attempt to cover them all.  Feel free to include any info in your description about techniques and supplies however!!  But also use tags you think fit really well and most likely we'll appreciate them!  We do want members to be able to search using the more common tags when wanting ideas or inspiration!!

We will have tags for these....for now these are tags for techniques, etc that we would like to see used,although this is a work in progress and we will be adding more:  CAS, masculine, christmas, halloween, easter, valentines, thanksgiving, birthday

Just no outside links to commercial blogs or stores please.

Now please do NOT feel overwhelmed!!  Ning has recently upgraded and allow the Admin to edit the tags that are already in place along with adding tags.  The Moderators are working through the gallery on past uploads slowly, and are keeping up with tagging current uploads.....so do NOT feel like you have to stress about that!  If you like to tag your photos then this is the guideline, but the Mods will add tags to photos that need it.  That's kinda one of our "jobs"!!!!   =)  So if you notice some of your tags disappearing or changing don't worry!!!

If there are any changes or additions we'll edit this discussion and bump it up to let everyone know!!!  Thanks so much for all your participation and for sharing your FABULOUS eye candy that make the  Stamp TV Gallery truly stunning!!!!!

Please feel free to ask questions in this thread also!!

Great idea Jen to put them in a CAS album!! I totally need to "album-ize" my cards! LOL
Hi Lee I don't under stand what you mean by tags, and when I tried to load a card for the stvcpsi at the right of the computer it asked if you wanted uhr , anomaous, and some other things but I didn't know what to put in, I am sorry I am having so much trouble and asking so many questions but I would really like to enter some of my cards. Thanks again Joan
Hi Joan! When you upload a card...there is a field called "tags"....so any words you put into that box will become clickable and come up in any searches for the gallery. We limit the kind of tags that we want here on STV. That is where you'll put the challenge keyword so it comes up in that challenge gallery.

What does css mean?

thank you

Hi Shirley.....CSS is for Center Stage Spotlight which is for past Guest Designers.  So if you click on that tag you'll see many of the past designers in action!  =)
I just entered a card in the STVSKSP10 and the STVCSP10 challenges. I'm not sure I'm entering and tagging correctly, sorry I'm being a bit dim on this. I know you are all very busy, but could someone please check and maybe give me a little more insight into this.

Hi Beverly.....you put the tags in the correct field.  But when you put multiple tags in, you need to separate them with a comma. So the backslash won't work.  Also if you combine Stamp TV challenges then your card can't be entered into the drawing since we need to have a new card for each Stamp TV challenge.  However you may combine a Stamp TV challenge with one outside of Stamp TV.  Ning is having some glitches right now, so I can't actually change or delete your tags......usually the Moderators can adjust tags.  See if you can go back in and edit your photo and then you can choose which challenge you'd like your card to be entered and use that tag.  Hope that helps!!!  And thanks for playing along!!!

Thanks so much Lee. I will go back in and see if I can correct the photo. Your reply was very helpful.

Hi Lee, I notice that in your explanation you use all "lower case letters" rather that UPPER CASE LETTERS in tagging.   Is that the only was a challenge will get into the drawing??????????
Uppercase and lowercase make no difference in the tagging.  All uppercase just looks like shouting since that's what it represents in the cyber world! LOL  But seriously....the tags are not case sensitive, so it doesn't matter!  No worries!!  =)

I would often search for submitted challenges under the Mixed Gallery by typing in the tag number and for some reason this week when I do that nothing comes up, it seems to be invalid. Has something changed in this respect?

We're just having some Ning issues with  the tagging....they are aware of it and have told us they are working on it.  We're making extra sure to count everyone's entries in the challenges though...so no worries!!  =)
