I have to say I disagree with the tags being taken away. They were equally balanced with applause levels to compensate for the members who thread less and post more. Also the majority of the member who had the tags, especially the higher one really did deserve them, and sometimes a "attention getter", like a gold tag is nessicary to get attention to posts, and usually that member who has that tag does post some important information. It is sad to see all the whiners once again taking something good away from a legitimate site.

I want my stuff back too. It became very important to me.
Plus, it made me work harder.
AGREED.........It made me work to uphold the "gold status" and work towards "cosmic", it allowed me in a way to set a standard for what it takes to reach that level, as other members in the high category did as well. Also the applause levels nicely balanced the threaders and posters. It also weeded out the "counterfeit golds"

I have to say jkrog,
I never knew you existed on this forum until the tags pointed me to your marvelous and well researched topics
I would have never read them.
You deserved your tags and applause,

Also how will we know a quality poster for a BS one? I used to look at the rankings and see who was a quality poster.
Now I suppose I will only go to the people I know and of course the always prepared and respectabled Mods.
