yeah, all overdramatic, myself included, I agree. I'm a bit pissed off right now in general and aimed it at this thread/topic (i'd delete the post and forget about it, but it's been quoted, so i'm too late), though I still do think tags should be used properly more often than for jokes and memes. I'm sure - trailed off, can't think of conclusion for this sentance. I think I badly need to sleep.

For what it's worth, I'm going to go through every thread I ever tagged as "is that a fucking bear" and remove the tag.

There's no need to suck up, AK. Your choice though. *shrugs*

I'm not sucking up, I just don't want people to be mad at me.

Plus, the tag cloud is a bit unpleasant aesthetically with that big "is that a fucking bear" there.

I doubt it'll disappear, though; many of the "is that a fucking bear" tags aren't even mine.

But a lot of them are. Out of the ones I've removed, I think three of them weren't? but I dunno I didn't check who did it for all of them. Assuming that people don't keep tagging threads 'is that a fucking bear' for no reason, it'll probably be removed eventually.

Tags aren't really useful anyway since it seams that nobody uses the same tag you are going to use(from experience) usually. And does anyone actually check the Tag Cloud to find a thread. It might as well be use as a gag in my opinion. And there is a little too much drama here, just over stupid tags. And it would be too difficult probably to delete every tag with a meme in it. And like I said before, do people use them? Thats my two cents.

Which probably has something to do with why I've been going through and altering some tags for a bit more consistency. also it's not so much that memes are bad as completely unrelated memes for the hell of it are dumb

It's not that useful right now but I think it'd be fairly useful eventually? Potentially useful, anyway. There's still not that many threads so it's easy to find things, but....

Default Re: ON TAGGING AND HOW NOT TO DO IT

why is "failing at thread titles" such an important tag anyway?

you may as well just call it unclear, really. I agree with Butterfree in that tags are a tiny feature and I'm surprised people care much about them. They weren't even here a couple of months ago.

It doesn't take priority. When you search 'videos', you're not going to get results for 'is that a fucking bear?' or anything else. The tags still work either way.

This has already been resolved why are people still here whining!

I'm sure it'll be useful for people not to ask the same questions over and over in the website building/mastering forums.

I didn't see the caps. Perhaps some did and others didn't. The tags are at the bottom of the page so who cares. As long as there's not a million tags that prevent the quick reply addicts from reaching their precious then I don't see the issue. I'll say it again.

Anywho, no use arguing over what's been resolved. You don't like it, too bad, but if you must have your way, talk to Butterfree

just for the record that's because all the tags were removed. before it was in a size about five times bigger than anything else.

For some reason, I can't see how the tag cloud being messed up is going to hinder your ability to search by tag.
