We all have a 20-tag follow limit. If I use the TAG Military_and_War does that automatically give me a feed from each one of its 11 M&W sub-projects? Or do I need to dedicate 12 tags to follow them all?

Tags are just tags.  They're created by using them, and followed by following them.  Project membership doesn't come into it.

It's up to the person making the post to attach a tag that will find the followers.  Eg if you have a post about the House of Westphalia-Pumpernickel it's probably best just to tag it euroaristo.

Tagging with a sub-project makes most sense if it's a self-contained enterprise with a separate crew who might not be following the parent project.

To follow a space page you have to follow one of the tags on the page.  Eg for the WW2 pages follow world_war_ii .

But many space pages don't have tags and can't be followed.

There's no way of following other types of pages linked to projects.  You can't follow categories.

RJ, Gotcha, I think...

That means the following Link is very Important; because if WikiTreeers don't follow the guidelines their G2G post will not get any ones  attention ?
