Incorrect weaves assignments

I've been browsing the weaves section quite a bit lately, specifically the orbital/captive section. Unfortunately, it seems the weaves, as they are tagged now, only display the category for which it is named.

For instance, I want to see all of the orbital and captive weaves, so I select the Orbital/Captive option. Instead of displaying all weaves that have orbital or captive rings, it only displays 12 weaves, which have the orbital/captive tag. If I go into the Japanese section, there many other orbital weaves and I'd wager there are others in other sections that just aren't showing up.

In addition, I'd like to request that all of the weaves with the orbital/captive tags also be tagged both orbital and captive (if they have the property)* to help with searching for them, as well as, create subsections on the weaves menu to allow for orbital and captive weaves.

*For example, Twisted Orbital is orbital, but not captive so it shouldn't have the orbital/captive tag which seems to imply both properties.

ps- Are 2Di and Orbital Sheet different? I can't tell from the picture for 2Di. Also, Orbital Sheet needs an orbital tag.

To sum it up a different way:

Orbital Sheet needs only an orbital tag, not orbital/captive.

4 in 2 Captive needs only a captive tag, not orbital/captive.

Captive Orbital Hex Cage needs all three tags: captive, orbital, and orbital/captive.

Narrina is the weaves admin. She is currently working on getting all the weaves tagged. Please see the note in red on this page.

"(March 12th, 2011) Please Remember: These tags are currently a work in progress and may change at any time. Weaves may move from one category to another over the coming weeks, as Narrina sorts through the Weave DB... Please bear with us."

Yeah...
The existing "Weave Categories" will be disappearing as soon as Narrina has completed tagging.
You'll notice that "Hybrid" and "Orbital/Captive" are now almost empty...

The others continues to display weaves, but only due to the fact that their names double as tag names...

If you're looking to see all Orbital Weaves, and all Captive Weaves, try:
http://www.mailleartisans.org/weaves/weavelist.php?tags=Orbital+OR+Captive

(The options to look this up without butchering a URL will become availalbe in the coming weeks/months)
Until then http://www.mailleartisans.org/weaves/?new=TRUE allows you to search by a single tag.

As has already been said, the old categories of Captive/Orbital, Hybrid, etc. are being emptied and replaced with a much better system of organization. This is why you are not seeing many weaves in Captive/Orbital.

The current phase of tagging is almost complete and will hopefully be finished either by end of this month or early September.
