Tags Feature

Recommended Posts

I'll probably never use it, but I'm not opposed to the idea. Honestly, it's mostly misused, unfortunately, and seems superfluous on blogs. Overall, though, it doesnt' really matter to me.

what tags feature?

When creating a topic or blog post, it is now possible to add "tags" to mark the topic of the post/topic. ~ BioGio

I'm fine with it. It is kind of annoying though when people don't spell a tag correctly or don't properly capitalize it. I use it yeah, when I'm creating a new topic.

I'm rather ambivalent to the change. The description was good to have, but this'll probably make searching easier. I am already abusing the blog tags though.

I wasn't even aware that this feature existed until I read this topic, so no, I haven't used him. I might in the future though.

It's a neat feature, but I see people using them as they're not intended to be used, e.g. as a topic subtitle. I also see a lot of people tagging the topic with words from the title which is pointless.

Yes, it's going to be difficult to use for searching if everyone abuses it. I don't mind the blog tags, but the tags in the forums... :( Anyways, yes, I do use the tags. I think it can be useful, if used right.

No. I'm not sure I ever will, either.

Why are orange and black such a good color Combination ? Purple is pretty, and so is blue. Pink hurts your eyes, green is quite mellowing, black is very threatning, red is cool, orange is SO awesome, yellow's hard to read... But you can't see white at all! Oh, wait. I forgot brown.

 

Here's my thoughts: If a person tells the truth and says, " I always lie," Is he lying? Or is he telling the truth? And what has a mouth, but no head, and a body, but no torso? Do caterpillars like to tend to supporting colum of stone's every need? Or is that name misleading by nature? Speaking of nature, why are the children of animals called offspring? don't many young beasts come alive in spring, and thus, should be called onspring? Heeeeeeyy..... I got the first post on a page for the first time. Who knows; it may happen again. What the... It did happen again... and again...

If people use it like they used subtitles, it defeats the whole purpose and makes searching for things a little bit harder. Why not have topic subtitles and tags to boot?

I don't really like them or find them to be necessary. They get in the way of my "topic scan". -don't touch my pocket protector

They had these on a bunch of other forums I've been on and I never used them there. Here is not going to be any different.

I can see the situations where they can be useful, but personally, I prefered the descriptions better.But it would be cool to have both implemented, with the description above the tags, and those two below the topic title.

I think it should only be used by the topic starter, so it isn't abused by others. Unless that's what the deal is already, in which case I feel stupid...

I think it does add a certain efficiency when it comes to searching blogs, a trait I've always found useful since prior to tagging I always searched by scrolling until I found what I was looking for or my mouse broke from overscroll (yeah, that's right, look it up). Nevertheless, the desire for efficiency is usually no match for human laziness, so practically speaking I doubt it'll make much difference. Definitely a smart idea on the part of the staff, though, who're all robots with no emotion and therefore no laziness anyways.

I've pretty much never used tags on any website I've used, primarily because I'd have no idea what to tag anything as. I would much prefer to describe a topic.


Signature? What is this "signature" you speak of?

I like the idea, but so far I don't see members using it right, and I don't quite see that changing anytime soon. So I'm not going to put the effort into creating tags for all my blog entries... I'll let what I write speak for itself. (If people read it anyway. :P ) :music:

I do prefer the old "subtitle" feature, since it made BZP more unique and was more fun to use/read. However,I do use the tags feature, mainly just because it's there, so why not? I do like that tags can be multiple words though. :mirunu: Lewa0111 Nuva :mirunu:

I don't like it the description was better.

I am not all too fond of it, either...

I agree with this
