As of now! MudBytes Forums support tagging for topics. At the moment, anyone with 10 or more posts can add a tag, but only those with more than 500 posts can delete them. This is a bit of a dry run to see how they catch.
Currently, you'll see the 'tags' section on each topic page at the bottom. In there you can add one tag at a time. Each tag is matched with an 'x' that, when clicked, removes the tag (with a confirmation box). If you go to the Boards, you'll notice each forum, and the header have a new link called 'tags'. This can group all the topics (and their respective tags) by forum, or globally. Happy taggin!
The tag system is not a rating system. Please don't remove meaningful tags. Please don't add meaningless tags.
We need a way to "bump" tags, or something. One person tags an item, 5 people may agree with it. How do those 6 as a whole show they all agree? Then one person disagrees and nukes it; what happened to majority rules?
Ya know, deeming it worthless because two opinion-based tags of yours got removed, and then going on to remove a whole bunch of meaningful, factual tags isn't a good way to get your point across ;). After your recent behaviour involving tags, I'm not saddened by the fact that you don't want to participate.
"The problem with tagging is not consistency, the problem is people that demand consistency. People who insist the words, ontologies and metadata in the minds of other community members must somehow map or conform to their own."
I did EXACTLY like the person who deleted my tag did, the tag didn't conform to their narrow half-brained mouth-breathing anal-retentive perception of the thread, ergo they deleted it. So would you like me to delete ALL the tags that I HAVE added? Just reverse my work? Why the fuck should I or anyone else bother to go back, read, tag, categorize discussions on this forum if some retard is just going to delete it?
Yes, it is rather bizarre that you or whoever should also delete "opinion-based" tags on a fucking "opinion-based" thread.
