Tag abuse is a breach of HUKD Forum rules. Report the thread http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/images/custom_buttons/report.gif with the offending tags & the relevant action will be taken against the individuals posting them. Thanks.

I don't think there is such a thing as a "Pointless" tag.

Only tagging your own threads is not why Admin added the feature, I have long asked for some extra functionality to the tag facility, hopefully the new update will see a better use of it, as it is very underused.

There is a similar thread in Feeddback thatyou may have missed. :)

There in no problem with personalised tags as long as they are not offensive. It is simply a way for a user to tag selected threads & then view them as a group. The search facility doesn't use the tag system as yet :thumbsup:

OK...whats 4 5 6 about then?


so in that case I can add ANYTHING I want to the tags...as long as its non-offensive?

so therefore say...I could add SAINT to anything you post in and it would be ok by that rule?

Whoa there. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with 'personal' tags - its WHAT THEY ARE FOR, in admin's own words. There is nothing wrong with someone making a '4 5 6' tag, offensive tags or tags directly involving members names maybe but you can't make two sets of rules at once. If someone wants to rewrite the rules on tags fair enough, but as is the user is explicitly ALLOWED to make personal tags to group posts as they feel relevant :thumbsup:

For what? For 'another BG1 thread' or a non-'personal' tag?

To be honest, if its for the former, I'd kick up a fuss as if it was a BG1 thread how does it not fit into the tags rule? For anything else, I'd fight my case till I was blue in the face, in admins own words tags are for personal linking of threads and we are effectively allowed to put whatever personal tags we like on threads (with the exception of anything offensive), so on what could an infraction be given?
