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 Is either of these an older/outdated term?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've never seen it actually used, just mentioned on the anoncomms a couple times. I think it's short for "puppet"?
2) Yes, frequently in the anoncomms and various games I've been in for the past few years.
3) Uh, I don't know when specifically? Probably around 2008-2009. Didn't really use anything before that, just "it's your turn" maybe.
4) It's short for "mundane".
5) Heck if I know, but I think "tag nirvana" is a Plurk thing.
6) 2004...ish? I've been here way too long.
7) "Crit". "Concrit"'s older and seems to be more associated with fanfic now; I feel like "crit" taking precedence might have happened around when the anon meme became a thing.
