Challenges - Derelict Thursday

SarumStroller
New Challenge to run weekly from this Thursday 18th Sept for UK Autumn and winter. Any variation on the theme and medium allowed. Idea is to see the potential beauty in dereliction and to interpret it in a Blip. It can also document changing neighbourhoods and their effects. Tag entries 'derelict thursday'

Hi, I want to take part in the challenge; so, do I need to register or do anything, or do I simply tag my Thursday blip "derelict Thursday"?

To be honest, I don't know how it works! Someone said that they needed tagging and someone else said about putting it up in the forum.

I shall tell people to let me know on the day by commenting on mine just to make sure. That way I can see them immediately and we'll take it from there. Looking forward to your entry!

O.K. thanks - will do.

I think if everyone tags their entries with "derelict Thursday", then you can go to the search and type
tagged derelict thursday

to see all the entries.

Looking forward to seeing everyones entries!

I was under the impression that when I click on my own tag on my own entry, it will show all others tagged the same. Isn't that what tagging does?

Count me in! If we all put in the same tag we should be able to see everyone's. Trial and error and all will become clear.

When I did a challenge someone told me that the words to be tagged needed to have quotes around them so that it would search for both words and not just the first? Not entirely sure if this is the case but that's what I did.

That's a fair point, thank you. I think perhaps that 'derelictthursday' as one word will work better. Too late to let people know now, I'll change this instruction for the second week onwards. I don't foresee large numbers anyway and so I'm sure it'll work out.

Under the relaunched Blip website I notice that tags are handled differently. If I tag "Derelict Thursday" it gets changed to #DerelictThursday. This makes a lot of sense because tags should really be single words anyway.
