Tag Change: "Avian"

I changed the "avian" tag to "ornithological." I know this is not a major change and I've made far more without telling you, but I thought I would drop by and let you know while it's on my mind.

Tags are an important element of any blog, as they comprise the majority of the navigational system, but I believe they are doubly important to blogs concerning Phenomenalism and have pleaded for more unity in developing accepted tags for use throughout the community. This would make it easier for you, and specifically earnest researchers, to find what y'all are looking for.

However, we also have to keep in mind that most lay-users are unfamiliar with the terminology involved in the fields - that's why there is a "ufology" tag as well as "UFO" and both are included on related posts. Yes, it is redundant, but it helps non-Phenomenalists who don't know to search for "ufology." Speaking of which, the "UFO" tag is being phased-out (The OddBlog is old and established enough that entries should show up under searches for "UFO," even without the tag).

I will keep you apprised of other tags changes, as well as all changes in technical aspects which may affect you and your experience, as they come.
