post tags


So we have tags, but is there a way to use them? Can you search by tags? I can click on them at the end of the post but where else can I find them?


I hadn't thought any farther than that, actually! :-)
I saw them as a means of finding "more/related" kind of stuff, relative to whatever you were already reading.

It's easy enough to create a page that lists all of them, or perhaps a "Tag Cloud" somewhere. But there aren't very many of them yet.

It's all built out of electrons. :-) For now, Tags apply only to Topic Posts, not Replies (which are technically Comments), and not to Game Listings. So adding a Tag provides a way for readers to view a list of related forum threads.

I could add that same set of Tags to Game Listings, but I'm not sure those two taxonomies are really congruent? Out there in the game listings you might search for things like "horror" or "humor," but in here it seems like the Tag focus (at least so far) is less about adjectives and more about verbs/nouns of praxis like "CA," "SIS," and "session zero."

Being built out of electrons, however, makes them all subject to change, and it's not like I'm arguing for a particular position. My position is whatever we decide best serves the community's interests and desires, functionally speaking.

For consideration: Here is

Looking at these I think we might want to make them NON-case-sensitive. We have dread and Dread for example.
