After talking it over with morphius for a while, we decided to kill them. We'd gotten complaints from various posters about them in the past few days.

I actually liked them and thought they were pretty funny at first, but they quickly deteriorated into the kind of thing you'd find written in a high school bathroom stall. I'm all for poop threads and general dumbassery, but do we really want things like "goatse eats menstruation" being the first things that people see when they visit the Planet?

The other issue was that they are completely untraceable. For example, if it ever got to the point that we had someone going around and making threats in tags (a bannable offense), we wouldn't be able to identify the source at all.

I guess, it comes down to this:
-Serving a useful purpose? No
-Humorous? Somewhat
-Annoying people? Somewhat
-Possibility of being a long-term problem? Definitely

Anyway, sorry for those of you who got a kick out of them. Feel free to leave the same types of comments as a normal post with your name attached to it if you feel the need.

Here is the first thread created...

Actually I'm surprised they were untraceable. They had to be traceable at some level. Why you could only add two and the system knew which ones you had added before, they should have been traceable. If they are and individuals abuse them then they should lose their tagging ability. The whole board shouldn't lose it because a few are dumbasses. It's like public rep comments. But on that sense each should show the user. For both punishment for a bad tag and praise for a good one.

I'm not saying anything about Ari, his name came up first alphabetically, but it isn't the image that we want the site to portray. Tags are supposed to be used to tell about the thread, and be a way to search for things of interest, not show all the things that people and their one kinky ex liked to spend their free time. hehe.

Sure that may be true but with tags people who are google searching felching tigers are likely to find the planet. More people is good right? Or are we becoming elitist in who we let post here? :harumph:

The issue we're running into here is that the way we were using tags is not even close to their designed use. If they were used as they were designed, there wouldn't be any need for moderation, and there would be no point in associating a user with a tag, since it's just a way of saying that a thread is about a certain topic.

As with basically anything, it's possible that the software could be modified to make it work, but it would take someone with some programming skills and a lot of time to make it work. Judging by the fact that no one's attempted to fix CPIggy since Simplex bailed, I doubt that'll happen anytime soon.

Right now, we only have options for 1)who can post tags, 2)allowed length of tags, 3)number of tags per user, and 4)maximum tags per thread. There's got to be a user association in there somewhere, but I sure don't know where it would be or how to find it.

if an association table (Many to many relationship a.k.a M:N) table of Thread/user/tag isn't there it would need to be created and programmed in the 'create tag' process. Now I'm guessing it just has a counter and threshold of #tags. Sounds like it's kinda close.... Again I need the schema of the tables to even attempt a guess at what would be required.

You may be right. There's certainly no indication anywhere I can find that specific users are related to specific tags.
