Hey

There have been several intresting threads in the past that have gotten closed because there arent tagged.

I know tagging them is obligated (I dont agree with it but it is Neowin rules) but closing them for not being tagged? Come on. There are threads that are complete flamewars and are not closed.

My opinion: If a thread is not tagged in the jokes section, a mod can tag it himself. BUT, the OP recieves a warning.

I hardly even notice the tags section. Its not that I dont want to tag a thread, it is just that you make the title and forget about the tags...


What do you guys thing?

Indeed. To further solve the problem, the check mark to tag should be clicked by default. Maybe a web dev can work this in?

Or a default tag of "Joke" or "Funny"

the check mark to use first tag as prefix is actually checked by default in the jokes section now

but yes maybe taking it a little further and having the 'Joke' tag selected by default wouldn't be a bad thing

Never used the tags myself - but I can understand them wanting a tag.

Vs closing threads after the fact, wouldn't it be possible to just not allow the actual submit of the thread unless it has tags?

WW - you can add any tag you like, can't you? I don't start a lot of thread myself, not 100% sure on that. Why can you not just start using WWJ on them?
