More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    That said, I will reiterate a point I've made several times before -- people's blogs on Daily Kos can and should be like their blogs anywhere else. There are no restrictions on topics, content, or length so long as they're not violating the broader culture of the site. People can diary a topic that has already been diaried! People can write a one-sentence diary! People can write about non-political topics!

    There is no reason to police diaries except for those that are overtly trollish. If you find yourself acting as diary police, it is YOU who are wrong, not the diarist.

            that it requires hide rates ?

            At least Hunter's diary had an image.
            So without the image you would have hide rated Hunters diary ?

            Did you ever see the "blank" diary ?
            If you have not seen it and you ask nice ,
            I might just dig it up for you .

          between a "one line Diary", and a Diary that only serves the purpose of driving traffic from this site, to another.

          If for no other reason than we do not know what will be the consequences of clicking a completely unknown link.

          It deserves to be hidden for that reason alone.

          I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
          but I fear we will remain Democrats.

      to a blog to drive traffic to that blog is not a topic that has already been diaried. It's not a one line diary. It's not a non-political diary.
      It's a link.
