When we switched over to the new BBS technology, we added some new features. In theory, the tags are supposed to aid someone searching for a thread maybe with certain keywords or a topic.

NOTE : you can view or add your own tags at the bottom of any current page (even this one!)

In practice lately,though, here is a smattering of DC threads.

What do you think? Positive or negative trend? I also noticed not many threads are tagged in the main forum.

If I found one that was funny, I'd say keep them. Instead they are useless and provide yet another avenue for people to prove how unfunny they are. Get rid of them.

Hell, I thought you were referring to some new technology aimed at "tagging" people, to watch their movements and whatnot. I was ready to go all Believer on your asses, crying out "MARK OF TA DEBBIL!!!!"

I have no opinion on these tags, as I have never seen or used one.

No I laughed too and it was appropriate for this thread.
I didn't write that one either despite his prosecutorial suspicions.

I did write "feminist cat fight", "phone chat", and "phone sex @ 3 am" though. ROFL

Hey, Tom.

Shut up.

OK, so how do you add a tag? I think I'm missing something obvious.

You see them on other boards and they're pretty funny too. At the bottom lower right of the thread it says Tags. Click on that and a box comes up to type in. They're editable too.

If used to add good keywords. Useful and should speed up searches. depending on how they are stored in MySQL and if they can be indexed

Definitely useful for searching. I don't have any problem with them and even though many of them are either dumb or nonsensical, some are pretty funny.
