Nice job guys, keep it up!

You'll still have modding powers - the thing I need to make sure of is that the icon submission form will be up and running under the redesign. :P

I see. I was going to suggest that it would be prudent to afford us the ability to put flashes into their designated collections, but that appears unnecessary.

Collections such as "Zombies" and "AYB" will still exist - although we have long-term plans for improving those with rule-sets and tag data. The manually managed collections for games and movies are going away, though, since we now have the genre data to populate those.

Speaking of rule sets and tag data, if you know anything else that can be mentioned on the tagging wiki, please add it on. I think the mention of certain perspective of games such as "topdown" could be noted as well as puzzle games involving removal with "remover".

Should I start a list underneath the current list, where it just has line-by-line suggestions for tag words covering popular themes?

Yeah, that sounds like a good idea. Hopefully on the redesign for the game/movie submission page, there'll be a link to the tag guidelines to inform users on how they tag their submissions correctly.

I started some list of keywords for movies and games. I also went through the existing info and tried to trim out any extra wording that didn't seem necessary - something we've been trying to do all across NG with the redesign - user less words for everything. :)

I resuscitated this thread because It only seems proper in the wake of the redesign.

The small amount of talk about tags and genres on the BBS disappoints me.

It's nice to see that us genre moddies are appreciated enough to have our own thread to communicate through now. I'll get to work when I get to my good computer.

Now that I can see them at a glance, it's easier to fix and/or add. I haven't put the search through its paces yet but I'm sure it's lightyears better than it was before.

My genre mod got removed because of the random icon changes to offensive images. Can I get that back as well?

I think I can speak for us all when I say, "I'm proud to know I helped further NewGrounds to where it is today."

Great job Genre Crew, keep it up!
