I finally figured out that the submission form from the entry wanted me to 'primary tag' the entry with an already-existing tag, as opposed to inserting 'hall of merit'. (You can't see them here, and they are essential in the site redesign.) The primary tag for this is 'history'. At the moment only Newsblog entries are showing up in the Beta under the 'history' micro. Eventually this should all make sense, if you haven't heard about the site redesign.

Apologies for the delay.
