That isn't a nag screen, it's for UI consistency between posts that have tags and posts that don't.

Kewl, I just created a 'nagging' tag on jeremy's 19:51 post and checked on another computer (on which I am currently not logged-in) and there it is. I presume that without the content of this post only someone like jeremy can find out who was the culprit. HAR!!! HAR!!! HAR!!!

But, just to confirm jeremy's statement, the 'No tags yet,please tag this post 'wat is this?' does get replaced by my silly tag.

Now - all I have to do is work out how to remove it - perhaps I can give it to my ex! Now, where is that /dev/null????

Incidentally, when I go to "My LQ" I do see a 'subscription' to this thread - only question is: will I effectively be subscribing to each thread in which I tag a post??? And, is there, or will there be, a menu item in "My LQ" for me to manage my tags???

Cheers
Richard

You will not get subscribed to a thread/post by tagging it. The subscription features are part of phase two, which we'll begin to roll out once we are satisfied with the core functionality. Removing a tag is as simple as hitting the tag button and deleting the tag you no longer wish to have.

I like the tag box very much now. Cool!

oh, and one little quibble- this post doesn't get bumped up in "WQSF" it just says "moved" I think it has something to do that it is actually in "news"
a little annoying.

titanium_geek, the thread is not actually in the WQ&F forum, which is why you're seeing the result you are. If you look in the news forum, you'll get the outcome you are expecting.

Question: If I do a search on 'xen' and then tag each thread and/or post that mentions 'suse' is there any way that I can get an update if anyone adds to or replies to such tagged thread?

Would this procedure (of mine) serve any purpose, or would it only preserve (for me) a historical perspective of those threads that I had already tagged?

Would my proposed procedure be of any use to other LQer's who wished to keep an eye on xen+suse threads?

TIA
Cheers
Richard

Right now it would be of use to all, but only if they ran a tag search. Phase II will allow you to subscribe to tags and do all kinds of other useful things.

Talking sweeeeet

nice feature. Now we can sort answers out of question, and sort through subjects.

Especially useful for searching samba/root answers

IMHO - I think the tag of answer should be under the control of moderators to insure that the answers are validated. An individual shouldn't be able to mark their answer as "answer" or the answer tag will become meaningless.

I disagree. If we have moderators tagging posts then how will we know which are answers or whatever.

Situation is that while reading a thread you spot a post which answers a problem you have been having. The post is halfway down a thread and doesn't answer the thread starters problem. Is it an answer or not? You would tag it and it would help you. I wouldn't.

These are your tags, not ours. Use them or not as you see fit.

well i'm already seeing a majority of wholly useless tags... someone tagged "please" for no apparent reason, and others were just meaninglessly obscure and would never lead to a useful information base. still we'll see how it goes when more experienced members start making use of them.

Chinaman, the desire to do this has indeed already been expressed by a couple of members, so we'll likely roll something into phase II.
