A lot of the entries that you are adding appear to be modern coinages. Personally, I would add {{cx|neologism}} to them to denote that they are not suitable outside of modern context, but I don’t want anybody to mass‐revert my edits and then get pissed off at me. --Æ&Œ (talk) 20:28, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

I'm currently going through Appendix:List of protologisms, picking out interesting words, and seeing if they're citable. I generally avoid using the "neologism" label. When I tag something "Internet slang" or "fandom slang," or even just "slang," that label on its own should be sufficient to denote that the term in question is a modern coinage. Adding a "neologism" tag when a term is already labelled "Internet slang" strikes me as redundant. -Cloudcuckoolander (talk) 22:35, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
