If we were to implement tagging for questions, would you like a Tumblr-like tagging system ("something like this") or Twitter-like hashtags ("#hashtag")?
Definitely more tumblr like, I pretty much prefer everything about how they do things compared to twitter personally!
ooh actually this is a good question.......... maybe a mix of both?
Tumblr's method for me.
Whatever it is, make them a separate field. Nobody likes #Hashtags #Littered throughout the #Input #Field
I #dislike #hashtag #talk. I don't mind the "#" symbol, but that inlinery has got to stop.
Inlining them is not planned, they will be separate.
I prefer a hashtag. There’s no ambiguity that way.
i think twitter tagging system is funnier but id prefer tumblr's honestly it's way more cleaner
As someone who usues both sites, i think i perfer the Tumblr-like system just a little bit more
I feel like out-of-band tags would be less obtrusive. Questions like "What is your #favorite #pokemon?" look more distracting.
we would put either outside of the actual question (position unclear as of yet though)
In that case I change my answer to "allow spaces" because you can always just not use spaces then
The Twitter hashtag is cooler
I'm not sure what purpose this would serve beyond vanity but I feel the #hashtag type more appealing.
With tagged questions people could find others with the same interest (or same types of questions).
Currently connections are mainly people that know each other, or what you find strolling in the public feed.
Wouldn't this require the poster to use hashtags that are common more or less to be specific?
I mean I see hashtags a lot and they often cover more lines than the main message/questions.
I wouldn't want to make hashtags part of the question body anyway, you'd get an extra field and...the tags would be placed either below or in the right menu
So how to avoid to tag your question with #developer, #poll, #tagging, #tagging-style, #andy, #Andy, ...etc..
I think you understand it would be a mess mostly?
well, I guess we won't know until we try? And we can still consider a tag limit if people constantly go overboard with it!
Same idea. What would be a reasonable limit? 4 tags? or more?
hashtags. that way #susananalbumparty is a lot funnier.
susanalbumparty vs "susan album party", don't see myself using it, but the tumblr version seems much clearer.
