    Default removing thread tags

    Just a little suggestion, it might be wise to remove the thread tags feature, because they seem to be primarily used to get anonymity when some members want to leave snyde comments.

    Or change it, so the tag poster is also listed with the tag?

    Question

    I can't quite see how that would be "a wise idea".

    They are just a feature of the forum and not every feature has to be fully justified.
    In fact, I'm not even sure if they actually have a use apart from providing some extra key words for folks to search for.

    The thread tagging system was created to allow for "better searching"... when a board gets stupid large the sheer volume of text needed to be parsed by the search sub-system can lead to issues where relevance is a problem.

    I thought the tagging would be helpful. And it was until people realized its a good way to hide behind a veil to say something they wouldn't want attributed to their moniker.

    I tried this first as it would allow the relevance to stay high and keep the "I am teH seKerIt PL IntArnetS hiTmanZ!" crap in check. Tags do not come with that feature. So that feature is removed until I figure out a way to fix that.

    This was a last resort and unfortunately had to be utilized.

    Thanks Admin' - A very wise decision I think, certainly until things calm down a little.

    Default Sorry, but what is a thread tag???

    I don't mean to be the question lady but I'm at a lost here. I did a search on the forum and it didn't tell me anything. So would someone kindly tell me what a thread tag? Cat
