  • No-one is listing tagibunda.

  • That's why I sneakily did not tag it "overtagged." (Psych!) Thanks for being Tag Police Officer No. 1, VO. :)

  • I've asked erich13 to remove the tagibunda, which he hopefully will do when he reads the explanation of how to do it. So then they won't be overtagged anymore...

    January 16, 2009

  • Aaagh! That's ... wow! *runs off to tag it "overtagged"*

    And not even one of them is "colon cancer"! The nerve!

    January 16, 2009

  • Okay, who's suddenly making overtagged look mild (see e.g. about)? Edit: erich13, by the look of it: spambot or just overenthusiastic?

  • It strikes me that the 'nobody has used this tag' line, which appears on tags people have added and then all removed (e.g. kath 'n' kim), is always technically false, since those tags were in use at some point; genuinely never-used tags produce 500 Application Errors. It would be more accurate to say 'nobody is using this tag'.

  • Is there a way to see the 50 most popular/used tags in total?

    December 5, 2008

  • No harm meant, MC. Not to speak for anyone else, but I think the frustration was aimed at the tagging problem, not you--and I certainly didn't mean to imply you were spamming, by any means.

    In any event, thanks very much for reversing your "eviltagdoing." ;-)

    November 22, 2007

  • Be quiet you ... and let me continue my evil doing in peace because I am an immoral person and now I will go on and fill the tags of all my badass words with evil spam... muhahahahh...!

    oh, no, don't be alarmed all my eviltagdoing has been undone. Actually im a quiet person, who like ... you guessed it : wordies! Thank you reesatee for letting me know how loquacious I have been in a heartwarm but direct way.

    And to any frightned pigs... next time my name pops up in a correspondance, let it be near my profile page.... right?

    And I second the opinion about emphasizing how the site is used and should be maintained by us, (yes I'm one of you guys now.. ha!), and future wordies. Nobody would like to see, turn in to a chickenrally of gossip and hearsay.


    November 22, 2007

  • I most definitely would not embrace it, mollusque. Credit to you for realizing it wasn't fitting with Wordie practice. What a mess it makes!

    Left a note. Hope it helps.

  • In general, people can use the site however they like, as long as it doesn't interfere with other people's use, but those long tags are somewhat disruptive. And they often break the tag page, since I'm not escaping shit properly.

    At some point the comment system will become more fine-grained, but the limiting factor at the moment is me. Just don't have the time to do it right now.

    But I will write a little tagging tutorial right now, similar to the stolen html guide, and link to it from the tag box. That might help sort things.

    November 21, 2007

  • One or several people are using tags to get definitions that stay at the top of the page. I tried this early on in my first few days on Wordie, but then deleted them when I saw it didn't fit the way people were using the site. Should we resist it or embrace? Maybe we need to revisit the decision not to have definitions separable from comments.

  • michaelchang is the loquacious tagger.

    November 21, 2007

  • I can! Just tell me who.

    November 21, 2007

  • "Not I," said the pig.

    November 21, 2007

  • People keep confusing the tags box with the comments/citations box, it seems.

    ...okay, one person. Who wants to be the brave one and leave a comment on his/her profile?

    November 21, 2007

  • Further proof that we need a tagging tutorial of some sort.

    'Words tagged with an 'iclipse' is the phenomenon when you can't log on to the internet and you know that you have paid your internet provider

    'Nobody has used this tag.'

    Glad to hear it, but then is it there because someone added it and then removed it, or...?

    Edit: URL broken up to stop the page becoming wider.

  • Has anybody checked out the tags page recently? I admit, I'm a tad vexed by the direction that some of them are taking. Is there a way to clean them up or provide some guidelines?

    November 21, 2007

  • Uh oh John, he knows too much.

    November 3, 2007

  • So how come tags doesn't have any tags?
