    •  Thank everyone for this making (0+ / 0-)

      the Recommend List.  But remember, it is not allowed for any of us to add that to our tags under penalty of banishment, but thank everyone for the kind thoughts!

      •  When a diary is on the Rec List (2+ / 0-)

        ...the tag is added automatically. If this diary were on the list, it would have a tag. That's why we no longer have to add our own, because it's automatic.

        The reason this diary doesn't have a tag is because it's not on the Rec List.

        Hope this helps clear up any misunderstanding about tags.
        I haven't yet seen a failure of the automatic "Recommend" tag.

          it does appear there.  Do it yourself, and you will find it there.  Not with that tag, but on the rec list.

          •  Where are you looking it up? (0+ / 0-)

            I'd like to look too. I usually look at the front page "Recommended List"...diaries that are on that list also remain on the "Recent Diaries" list. Help me figure this out!

              What most people mean by "Rec List" as in "I made the Rec List!" is the front page Rec List. What this diarist appears to mean by Rec List is the list of the several hundred diaries that have received a rec in the last 48 or so hours. If you want to see that list go to the bottom of the front page rec list and select next. The list goes on and on and includes many diaries that received only one rec.

              I am not really sure what the criteria are for ordering the rec list. I would guess it prefers more recent to older and would more highly rate a diary that receives 9 recs in its first 5 minutes over one that accumulates the same number over 48 hours. Obviously, (well obviously not to some), not all of these diaries should be tagged with the Recommended tag.  Otherwise that tag would be fairly meaningless. There is no reason a diary with a handful of recommends should get the same tag as one with hundreds of recommends as is often the case for most FP rec list diaries. Once a diary scrolls high enough to make the FP rec list it seems to get the tag which it then appears to keep even if it scrolls off the FP fairly quickly.

              Don't know for sure...just some observations. Not sure why anyone would care.
