Dear my friends! Help!

Is there a way to filter out certain tags at AO3? Asking for a short, plump, white-haired old friend. *koff*

Someone on Tumblr did a tutorial, of which all I can remember is, put a minus sign in front of the tag you want to filter from your search. Try that and see if it works? I haven't tried it, so let me know if it does, please, ma'am.

You can filter out tags/relationships using the "any field" slot in works search form. You just enter your tag with a minus sign in front of it. For example, -Castiel/Dean Winchester or -underage. You can list multiple tags (separated by commas).

The tumblr tutorial I saw was this one.

Hope that helps!

Oh, thank you!! I'm looking for a way to filter things to make searches faster--It'll be great for me time-wise not to have to go through the thousands of entries in SpN! :D

I'm glad you got some help for that. AO3 is where I learned that if I don't know what a tag means, I *definitely* do not need to read it. :-0 I had a few traumatic experiences when I first became part of fandom...

Happy filtering!

Oh, heck yeah, I understand that!

I'm actually looking for a way to make searches shorter for me! While I have encountered tags that make me cry, I've also been introduced to things I normally would have skipped over, so take the good with the horribly bad, ha!

I'm notorious for not checking tags, I've talked about it here a lot. Me, always with the "How bad can it be?" Sometimes, THAT eye-watering bad! :D
