Posting this on a public entry so that I may use this as a source (albeit anecdotal) for a paper I'm writing:

1) Did you encounter the word "pup" in LJ/DWRP? If so, when do you remember it being used and in what games/comms? What is "pup" short for, as you understand it?
2) did you encounter the word "muse" in LJ/DWRP? If so, when do you remember it being used and in what games/comms?
3) When did you first see or start using the word "tag" in an RP context? What did you use before that?
4) What is the origin behind the word "mun", as you know it?
5) when did the term "tag" start being used to describe replies in an RP log/thread? When did it begin to be altered from just an interjection (as in "tag, you're it!") to becoming a noun "tags/pile of tags" to becoming a verb "tagging"? When did "tag nirvana/tagvana" come into use?
6) when did you first start LJ/DWRPing?
7) Which do you use--crit, or concrit? Is either of these an older/outdated term? If so, which one and when do you think it fell out of favor?

I started RPing in 2008, at age 16, and have continued on to today!


1) No, I can't remember that word being used.

2) Yes! I . . . can't remember when I first encountered it, but maybe 2008? 2010? I can't remember specifics, I'm sorry!

3) 2008! I used it because other people were using it, in Saint Edelweiss over on livejournal. Beyond an RP context, I only used it when I was, say, talking about the game tag, or dogtags, or things like that.

4) Oh, gosh, I'm not sure. Mundane, maybe?

5) At least since I started RPing, which was 2008. It was a noun back then, absolutely-- I can remember being so confused by it.
