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 Is either of these an older/outdated term?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 do remember seeing it used. As far as I know, it's short for "puppet", though it always makes me think of puppies. I recall it vaguely being used in Paradisa, during one of my stints there. Circa 2008, 2009ish?

2) Yes. This is the one I'm more familiar with. I've seen it/been using it since about 2005. I picked it up in AIM RP though.

3) I don't remember when I first started seeing it... I think prior to it, I just used "I replied!" or "I posted!"

4) Mundane. As in, the mundane, boring person behind the ostensibly cool character

5) "Tagging" as a verb and not just "TAG YOU'RE IT" seems to be fairly recent. Maybe in the last four or five years. And Tagvana is very new, as recent as 2012, 2013. I don't remember tagvana being used ever before the big move over to plurk.


SORRY THAT I AM BAD WITH DATES I hope this helps anyway?

OH I've been RPing since I was 12, and am now 25. I started on Neopets, moved to AIM with a little forum stuff in there, then to LJ/DWRP in 2005.
