Agreed. Since when do people pay attention to that kind of thing that often? Not that people wouldn't, but it seems like another thing to keep track of. 


Exactly. You have to look at the bottom tags of the post to see it. If there was some sort of change in the title or emblem of the thread, that would be much clearer.


I see why it is useful in General, where the moderators have created a standard set of labels to use and a way to quickly access them. But until that happens here, which would be much harder to implement. They have no purpose. If anything they've simply added another level of complexity to the already underused tagging system.


This is true. But it is still too hard to find.

Smiley Surprised See, THAT is better implementation. It will still be hard to get people to label their threads, so maybe they should require  alabel in General. I did not notice that, actually. Mainly because I stick over here.

Labels in Off Topic seems kind of pointless

You just have to click on the tag and it'll bring you to a list of Labels.

 If the OT has labels then that thing you circled should be in the OT as well. It's only in PS General.

Those images in the PlayStation General widget contain links to the lists of topics in PlayStation General that have those specific (and mandatory!) labels. The labels in Off-Topic are different, optional, more flexible, and can apparently be created by users whenever they create topics here. It would only make sense to have these images in the Off-Topic widget if users were actually going to use those specific labels here on a regular basis.
