Exclamation STOP the tag Abuse

Stop abusing the tagging system. Don't act like little kids, if you don't have anything relevant to add, don't tag the threads. No one is searching for anal sex porn on a hardware forum. Grow up for christ's sake.



If it's not going to get used properly, I suggest the tag system gets disabled.

Yeah, agreed. It could be quite useful but only if threads get tagged properly. It would be a pitty to lose it (useless tags add up to the same thing).

Might be in idea to uncheck tags that are irrelevant.

Speak for yourself. Sometimes you find a few of those topics on here.

Dammit, I didn't add "captnkill was here" to that...

I think the edit tag feature should be removed. It isn't really necessary... even if it is funny.

That's the thing: it's not necessary so we might as well have fun with it. I'm pretty sure once the novelty wears off people won't use it as much or will use it as intended, but keep in mind that half of the topics in the open forum end up involving gay sex in some way so it wouldn't be shocking if those tags kept showing up.

I lost my edit tags link for a bit, but it turned out I had just gotten logged out somehow. Don't tell Camp0rz though.
