Thank you for pointing this out! I just tested the "#FirstWritersCamp" search term, and you're right, it's glitching hard. I let the team know and hopefully we can get that fixed. In the meantime, use the "FirstWritersCamp" tag without a hashtag as the main tag, and tag your series with both tags to make sure anyone searching can find your series. @silverraven0 I believe this answers your question!
I'll ask about creating a temporary genre, but I believe that requires a lot of back-end work and am not sure if we'll be able to make that happen. It could be a good solution, though.
EDIT: So, it looks like Tapas' internal search engine does not currently support the use of hashtags. It's something our team is working on, but our search probably won't support the use of hashtags during the contest. Make sure to use "FirstWritersCamp" in your series tag instead of "#FirstWritersCamp."
