I actually think this is a solid move in the right direction.
If a user is abusing the tag system,. the tag system gets removed, we all know who abused it and therefor that person gets instant heat amongst tag lovers or people who want to support others.
I love it.
In a way it lets the user in question know that their activity is being or has been dealt with.
Also they were perma-banned, so that's a pretty stern indicator that their activity was dealth with.
YES YES YES!
I'm so proud of the moderation team right now.
There was too much Trolling with Tags, so I can understand why they got removed.
It would be great if they could return like this:
- adding Tags can only VIP Forumers and Mods
- Using tags, by see and klick it everyone could use
It would solve the trolling and still offer the feature for usefull help for everyone.
I asked to remove the top tags. but it seems they removed tagging itself.
Yep. Like cutting Big Bird's budget, it's for the greater good.
Although, instead of also sabotaging the childhood of many people, this just lessens trolltagging.
The greater good!
And for once, I agree with Aureilia. The tagging feature was being used to put down other people more than actually making posts easier to find (like ND replies), and the situation had gotten so out-of-hand that the moderators simply had to nuke the tagging system from orbit.
Oh, and banning the people who used the tags this way? Does that mean no more thel- *cough* You-Know-Who?
I am so glad they're gone...
Just like some people said above, tags were not used the way it's supposed to, people just kept spamming their opinions on the post by using tags instead of replying.
Which is a shame, and a childish act, it's like a little kid who ate too much candy and now their parents took it away from her...
Let's be honest. Top tags were insults.
