Notes about Tags
How useful this tool becomes depends on skilled players taking the time to share their knowledge and anyone that loves a build not feeling afraid to submit a guide. We purposely added tags, so the author can let the community know what the intention of the guide is at a glance. We've added a Fun tag for every game type, and we hope that it's a section that anyone in the community can submit a guide for without being down voted by the hardcore Dungeon or Tournament players. It's a section for creative, experimental and fun builds. As a viewer please look at the guide tag before hitting a down vote. We designed this so the community can adjust criticism based on tags, we don't intend a sPvP - Fun guide to be meet with the same level of scrutiny as sPvP - Tournament. At the very least judge a Fun tag more heavily on effort and depth than how well it fits into the current meta.

tl;dr - Look at guide tags before you down vote authors. Fun and Tournament/Dungeon tags shouldn't be meet with the same level of scrutiny.

Closing Statement
The IntoTheMists.com website project was created by a 3-person team. We've been fortunate enough to have our ad-revenue cover the costs of our server. However, all the design, programming, and content work that has been done on the site has been in our spare time when we're not working, teaching, or attending graduate school. Any donations given are greatly appreciated and will go toward making new features for this site and the Guild Wars 2 Community. Thank You!
