Reasons why I really ought to put it elsewhere:
Well, some people do. But after the post has been reblogged, the tags are almost always lost. As a consequence, I get tons of asks saying “Can you include what language the word is in?” and I keep having to resist responding with “arghlasdflj it’s in the tags you guysss”.
A lot of people also reblog to say “That’s not English!” “That’s not a word!” or other, often less polite variations of the same. So I’m caving—I’ll start adding the language and origin in the actual text of the image. It’s super tiny in the bottom right above the URL credit, but that’s the best place I could find for it. At least it’s there, right? Thank you for your suggestions, you over-persistent crazies (which I promise you I say with the utmost fondness).
I definitely understand what you mean. So far, tags have been the easiest way to include any other info that’s not the word itself, part of speech, and definition, but it’s nowhere near a perfect system.
I’m currently working on a way to put things like origin and pronunciation into the main body of the post. I was actually thinking of doing a photoset of two images, one for the word and a second for the other info… I take it you don’t think that’s a good way, since you want to save it out. I’ll look at including it all in one image! I’m sorry, it’s taking a while ‘cause I’m busy and also a bit lazy, but it’ll happen soon.
For now, the language is usually tagged right after the word itself and the part of speech, so it should show up even on the one measly line of space Tumblr allows for tags on the dash.
Thanks a million for your input! Keep an eye out for changes coming soon. And thank you for the compliment.
