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 Is either of these an older/outdated term?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?

1. I have, it was used by a few players in dear_multiverse and people kvetching on BRPS and was short for "Puppet" about early 2000s, but it's usage died out.
2. Muse around the same time, it overcame the use of Pup in Sages_of_chaos/dear_multiverse
3. Tag about... 2005? About late in my dear_multiverse career, before then we used Ping.
4. Mun is short for Mundane
5. Tagnirvana came about in the last year, I've never seen it before then and I suspect it came from Plurk. Tags I think started around 2009-2010
6. I started on LJ/DWRP in... late 90s, early 2000s? I'm not entirely sure (LJ purged my oldest accounts so I can't check)
