The media tag set can be used for multiple items within the Geek websites. For the sake of completeness the known uses of the thing tag set are documented here. However, the tag set doesn't seem to be particularly useful for Geek users. For users it would be easier to remember the named tag set.
There are two forms of the media tag set: * [media=####][/media] retrieves Geek name as the text for the link * [media=####]Alternate Caption[/media] where "Alternate Caption" is the user supplied text for the link
For geek programmers, the media tag set is probably very useful. It would help the programmers write domain independent code so that it would work on BGG, RPG, and VGG. So in the forum editor, many of the links created using the "Insert Geek Link" dropdown actually used the generic media tag set instead of the particular named tag set.
