:Once you have an account in TagTeam, you may create new hubs (projects), tag for those hubs, and authorize others to tag for them as well. To tag for an existing hub, like OATP, you'll need the permission of the hub owner, which you can request through the "Contact" tab on that hub. (See [[Get_started_as_a_tagger#Getting_permission_to_tag_for_OATP | next]]).

Getting an OAD account

  1. Go to the OAD and click the Request account link in the upper right corner.
    • If you already have an account, then sign in.
  2. New accounts must be approved by the editor, who is sometimes traveling. Please understand if this process takes a few days.

Learning the OAD style

  1. Log in to TagTeam, and go to the OATP hub.
  2. Click on the Contact tab in the left sidebar. Fill in the form, for example, by asking for permission to tag for OATP. Click Submit.
  3. The OATP hub owner will receive the message and approve you when it arrives.
When you get this far, you'll be authorized to tag for OATP. The next few sections are about how to do that.
