What if we had a kindler, gentler tag board? I am sure there would be a couple people who could be tag moderators.

Plus, if we know that no personal attacks are allowed, the board would probably police itself.

I'm sorry, they were hilarious. Some people were stupid and rude... but I bet most of that would go away.

No tags. I think it's safe to say it now that I won't be the victim of myriad tags.

It looks like they were mostly used as anonymous neg rep.

Either find the balls to post it under your own name or keep it to yourself.

I think the tag on a certain "Sick Pet" thread probably triggered this.

Whoever did that needs a kick in the balls.

Not only was it a dick move, it also opened up the possibility that people might anonymously do the same on prayer threads for family members and such.

(I'm just guessing, to be honest... but I feel like it's a pretty good guess.)

I guess I did, though I never used it in a tag. I was responding to a thread about a draft prospect who scored very low on the Wonderlic. I claimed the ability to cram a #2 pencil up my butt and sit down on the test sheet resulting in a higher score than the moron. I guess some people were very aroused by the thought.

how can you moderate the tags, if you can't track who applied which tags???

what part of that don't you understand. The VBull software only counts that you applied a tag (not what tag).

Correct. The only thing a moderator could do would be to go around deleting tags - no one could ever be "punished" for getting out of hand.

Hey - I could go for that! Tell ya what - you guys raise enough money to keep me employed full-time and I'll turn the tags back on and moderate every single one. Rain Man would be disappointed, but I'm sure he'd understand. :)

To give you an idea of the scope of trying to moderate the things, there have been over 2,100 unique tags added in the past two weeks. That doesn't count tags that have been used multiple times, such as Ari's favorite "f*ck carl peterson".

How could you moderate them? The only reason they were funny and worth keeping is for the personal insults. If you take those away, they arent funny anymore so there would be no point in bringing them back anyway.

No argument there. The difference is that, when something like that is posted in a thread, we can all point and laugh and say "Look how much of a douche he is for posting something like that." If it's TOO far over the line, people can report it to a moderator and, if necessary, corrective action can be taken. You can't do that with tags.

The other issue is that typically the offensive/stupid stuff around here is confined to offensive/stupid threads. If a user doesn't want to read a thread about whether or not a person likes to pee sitting down, they don't have to read the thread, and that's all there is to it. When tags were on, people were putting stupid crap in nearly every thread. For example, the Lakers thread is currently tagged with "kobe raped her" and "rapers suck cock." A legit thread about Chiefs discussion by a user with 500 posts was tagged with "nobody cares n00b." A thread about a guy's cousin getting signed by the Bucs was tagged with "stupid n00b" and "who gives a shit."

If that's the kind of community you guys really want to support around here, then I guess that's your opinion. I can even understand why some people find that kind of thing funny, so no argument there. But when you can't find a thread without reading that kind of thing, it gets old very quickly.

Nope. It'd be cool if we could let people "opt in" to them or something, but they're pretty integrated throughout the board, so there's no easy way of doing it unless vBulletin puts that in as an option in the future (or maybe if someone designs an add-on to do it).

THe problem is I just don't really believe that. Back when we had tags enabled whenever I added a tag I had the option to add a tag and also to delete a tag I already added. Clearly the software could identify which tag I placed previously, it just may not be obviously exposed.

Side question what language is vBulletin coded in? Heh in my copious amount of free time I may look at it, if it means getting tags back! :cuss:

again with Vbull table tracking that a user created 2 tags in a thread, (your limit). Could you delete a different tag (not created by your user)?
I you couldn't it must associate thread/user/tag maybe by an 'id' not actual text. Then it may be possible to have a query to join thread (posts) table and user_tag_thread table.... TO MONITOR WHO/What tags are there... from a concept level.

I never played with 'tag' functionality other than try to create a 'reasonable useable' tag. NOT a 12 yo comment.
