OK Kossacks, it's time for another edition of everyone's favorite new meta discussion, "Ask me anything about Daily Kos." For those of you unfamiliar with this series, here is how our Managing Editor, Barbara Morrill, described it two weeks ago:
As Markos put it when he announced this new, regular feature last week, "you guys learn more about what we're up to, and we learn more about what you guys want, need, and find important." So from week to week, staff members from editorial, activism and the technical end of things—along with monthly appearances by Markos—will be here to answer your questions.
This week, you get me.

I am the Senior Campaign Director here at Daily Kos. That means I manage all of our activist campaigns, our email list, and the campaigns department. Way back in 2003, I also invented the tip jar. (seriously)

Last month, I wrote a diary that gave a basic description of how the campaigns department at Daily Kos operates. But I hope that diary doesn't answer all of your questions, because I am eager to chat with you today. Fire away!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
