I know the points are gone, but I still tag.
I want a comprehensive tag search to be availabe to all members of ATS, and it's only by our input that this will become a viable search feature.

Tag away my friends, it will help us all in the long run......................

Getting no points for tagging is like getting no points for creating or contributing to a thread.

Bring back the tagging points!

I never really did it for points in the first place, I did it so ATS' threads would be easily searchable for myself and everybody else.

I'm with you on this one. Having been a member here for a little over a year, I can't even begin to tell you the number of times I've been foiled by the old search system, made a post, only to be told later that another post was made on the same subject, along with a link. I love the idea of tagging threads with useful, searchable tags, to make thread searches easier for everyone. I myself try to tag a thread with a useful tag (and even before the points were eliminated, I'd refrain from tagging a thread, if the tag I wanted to use was already there).

Please keep tagging threads with useful keywords. That's what I had always pictured tagging to be for. It makes me happy to know that there are people that use the system properly, with or without the point rewards, to make searching easier for everyone.

I still tag new threads but I don't bother with the older ones any more.

I don't know why S.O. wont put the tag search on the search page or at least a link to the tags on the search page.

It would be a very convenient feature to have.

AceOfBase,

I believe that the answer to your question (and Mods, please correct me if I'm wrong) is because the tagging system to date, while used properly by some members, was largely misused, and tags were often posted just to get points, and were often either unrelated to the thread in question, or simply a commentary on the thread (such as the tag at the bottom of this very thread that states "why bother tagging at all?").

With member tagging practices like these going on, it means that SO has the added resonsibility of going through all tagged threads and weeding out the bad tags. Unfortunately, having seen the tags added to many threads on here (started both before and after the tagging process was put into effect), the tags are largely useless for search functions. I'd be willing to bet that of the thousands upon thousands of tags entered on various ATS threads, the actual, serachable tags probably only account for, at most, 10% of them.

Once again, mods, please correct me if I'm wrong - especially you, SO, as you're the poor soul that has to deal with all this nonsense.

Then don't do it.


The VERY LEAST we can do is continue to contribute to ATS (by tagging) to make it better. Not for selfish reasons, but to in some tiny, measley way attempt to give back to ATS what it gives to us every day. (Well... to those of us who are here everyday... )

Do your very best to place well-thought-out, meaningful, appropriate tags whenever you think of it. It's the least we can do!

I always appreciate an applause.

I notice that most of the members that replied to this thread actually understand the purpose of tagging.
It's for us, all of us.
It helps us find what we are looking for in the ever expanding ATS Universe.

I figure if I spend the time to read a thread, the least I can do is spend a few seconds to add a tag at the bottom.

Cheers Folks
Keep Tagging

In my opinion, points are worthless, I come to ATS for the community and the discussions, so I'll actually start tagging now, didn't really do it before.

Because, without ATS, are we even whole? No. And try not to argue that point.
