    Post Thread Tags - New Feature!

    New Thread Tags!

    Howdy Chatters, welcome to a fantastic new feature: Thread Tags.

    What is a thread tag? They are words and phrases that help users determine what a thread is about. For example, for this thread, I added a title and then added the tags: Thread, Tags, and Posting

    Why is this a good thing? Well, there are lots of reasons that this is good.
    1) It helps users find your thread, even if it is not a new thread.
    2) It helps the search engines find your thread which will bring you users from outside of MiceChat.

    How does this work? Every time you start a thread, you will be able to add "Tags" in the box just under "Title". You don't have to add tags if you don't want to, but we strongly suggest it.

    A "Tag" link is listed at the top of the site, and a "Tag Cloud" has been added to the front page of MiceChat. If you click a tag in the tag cloud or in any post, you will be taken to a list of threads that contain that tag. Cool!!! Another great way to surf MiceChat, and a great way of giving new life to older threads.

    We hope you all will enjoy and benefit from this awesome new feature.

    - Dusty, Monorail Man, and the MiceChat team

    Re: Thread Tags - New Feature!

    As time goes on the tag cloud changes with the currently popular key words, this will be a fantastic way for people to pull up threads which contain topics that they are most interested in and that others think are hot.

    It will also be easy for you to spot trends in what is popular. The bigger the word in the Tag Cloud, the more popular that topic is.

    Lots of fun

    UPDATE:

    If you are the starter of a thread, you can go back to your thread and add tags. So, if you'd like to add tags to one of your older threads, simply open it up and add your tags.

    This is all so high tech!
    How awesome!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    How exciting!

    Btw - I can't access the rest of MiceChat. I can currently only access this thread because the "New Changes" link and the "Gay Days" link are the only things showing up when I log in.

    Just thought ya oughta know.
    "But every night, when it gets dark
    and the stars come out,
    I'll look up on her behalf.
    I'll look up in the sky and think of you."

    Heh, the automatically generated tags for my Beauty Pageant Gold diary thread:

    cheese, ham, hamand.

    Even MiceChat isn't above 3rd grade jokes.

    Mine is "sticking" a bit too on the main page. It will load the page just so far... then just sit there. If I click on the "refresh" button it instantly finished loading the rest of the page. Might try that.

    I never know if its the new stuff making my computer act weird or just my weird computer and internet connection.


    The tags will take some getting use to for me. Its not something that I personally have ever used or felt a need for... but hey... I'm willing to give anything new a try!

    Re: Thread Tags - New Feature!

    I think the tags are slowing down the server. Earlier this evening I got the message that basically says "cannot load page, because too many people are doing complicated tasks (like searches)."

    Personally, I have no use for tags.

    Perhaps we can have an option in the control panel for those who don't want the tags, would have the ability to disable them??
