Pacific Postcards Team Thoughts, opinions on tagging items with ppt team

Who can join?

Pacific Postcards Team is a moderated team with the following requirements:

General Membership: Open to anyone who has an interest in postcards and postcard imagery. You will be able to participate in most activities and utalize the discussion boards for information and postings. I ask that you do not create new threads or discussions and that if it is marked specifically "Ephemera Only" or "Ephemera Shops Only" that you do not post non-ephemera information within these threads. Most of us who love postcards, love ephemera in general so we will be hosting many promotions that will capture that spirit.

Ephemera Shop Membership: Open to anyone who has 25% or more of their shop designated to selling Ephemera or those that use vintage imagery within their art, i.e. Tags made with postcard images, digitals, collage, etc. You will be elegible to be featured in Postcard Shop specific activities, such as suprise BNRs and other shop promotions.

Note to all members: Please do not start new threads if there is a thread started already. Threads that are redundant or shop specific will be removed. Please look through the discussions before posting and if you find one that pertains to the subject please revitalize that thread first. In order to attract attention we should keep organized and create active, running threads. This is important for our team as well as bringing traffic to our shops.

Only other rule is to be a participant. Thank you

Original Post

A question was brought up about tagging our items with ppt team so they are easier for us to find each other to create treasuries. While this is very good and valid many of us belong to several teams that ask us to tag our items with the team tag. The problem is that this uses up so many of our discription tags that it leaves us little left to use to discribe our item. So I am asking the following questions.

Do you think that the pros out way the cons when tagging your items ppt team?

Would you be willing to list most of your items with the team tag?

I will leave this question open for a couple weeks to give everyone a chance to give feed back and then we will decide whether to tag or not to tag.
Thank you

Personally, I think it's much better to use a team tag. It makes it far more easier for people who want to create treasuries using other team members items, without having to trawl through all the team members shops. I'm currently in the process of tagging all my postcards with the team tag.

I don't mind adding in the team tag wherever I can. As said above, makes it so much faster to find items when making treasuries (which I love to do). Personally, I'm on dial up and going shop by shop to find what I want takes forever! Even if we just tag 25% of our listings, it helps get to our team shops faster. As this team grow, which I know it will, this will become even more important. net....count me in for tagging with PPT Team

Just bumping this up again as I've just done a search for members' items and there are only a few members who have tagged their items.
Please tag your postcards if you want to be promoted and featured in treasuries.
Thanks. :-)

This is a really good idea. It is hard to search through for treasuries!
