WW - you can add any tag you like.. Why can you not just start using WWJ on them?


I could try that.

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?


yeah isn't it just make a subject like [WWJoke] Subject here ?

edit: was thinking of another site, just write the tag in the tag text box as you want it

Now that I got spanked for. I actually liked that idea because you could clearly see which jokes I created. I actually got a person PM over that one. Although i'll try making it a tag under the subject.

So it seems joke section only has list, but in tech section they are freeform. So guess you would have to use [WWJ} or something in the subject.

And that would be a bad thing? hehehe - my attempt at humor ;) I think in all the years here at neowin I have posted in the joke section like once.

I don't see what would be wrong with WWJ in subject?? It would make it easy for fans (lack of a better word) of your style easy to find them.

Let me clear up some things. Firstly, no one is "warned" for not tagging a thread. Your warning level remains the same. Secondly, it's necessary because simply fixing it for a member can easily go unnoticed. Should a moderator add the tag him/herself again? What about the third time? Finally, it's not hard to add the tag. In fact, we've made it easier for you to tag it by checking off the "Use first tag as prefix" by default.

It's not that hard to take notice of the tag box which is directly blow the title box too:

And it's also not hard to notice this:

I wonder if we'll have to add a pop-up that tells you to add the tag, complete with video and voice over from Big Bird himself.

Anyway, we don't need another thread about the same issue (currently a non-issue).
