As the title says, the questions pertain to tags. I've noticed for the free content that is available, Isle of Kandril, We Be Goblins, Streets of Zobeck, they use the Setting Scope tag and then list the title of the book that was built in RW.

Questions:
1) How many people are using tags and the Setting Scope tag?
2) If you are just creating mechanics content, are you using the Setting Scope for the mechanics as well, or are you using another tag or tag type or custom tag types?

I can see using the Setting Scope if you have mechanics that are part of the setting document.

Thanks.

I haven't used the Setting or Story Scope tags at all; they came in with the Content Sharing Guidelines, and I have no content to share yet. :)

If I were to use them, however, I'd have the Setting Scope tag be the name of the campaign setting or the campaign setting product, falling back to the adventure setting/setting product if it has one. If it has no related setting then don't use the tag.

Looking at our four examples, I might have used these for the Setting Scopes:

Product - Setting Scope Tag
Isle of Kandril - Isle of Kandril (or None)
Pixies on Parade - None
Streets of Zobeck - Midgard Campaign Setting
We Be Goblins! - Pathfinder Campaign Setting

It's only important once you release a second import from the same setting, as it gives you and the Realm GM a way to tie them together.

I would put the pathfinder campaign under a tag of Golarion, being the name of the setting rather than the game system :-)

Golarion is the name of the main planet, but as officially as I can tell the name of the setting is Pathfinder Campaign Setting. That's the name of the product line that includes the original Pathfinder Chronicles Campaign Setting book as well as the current Inner Sea World Guide.

I agree that it's not the best name given that other settings use the same ruleset, but that's Paizo's prerogative.
