Time to create a separate forum for politics. I'm just tired of all the bullshit.

What exactly doesn't work about the tagging system?

I think the confusion occurs that the selecting the Tags do not show what tags are seleceted.  Select the politics again and those threads should go away.

The system doesn't show you what tags are enabled vs. those enabled. Maybe on a different browser they are. But there should be some indicator - bold, different color, etc. that indicate which filters you have on.

Also, people who start threads likely tag them wrong.

Yea, there's not a lot to discuss related to football, and there's a possibility that there will be no 2020 season. Message boards days are not-for-long anyways. If it can't be fixed, it would be helpful if the political discussions involved well thought-out dialog vs. name calling and head-in-the-sand closed-minded rants.

 

But that's just me.

Lit, people don’t want to bother with it, even if it works. Why would it be so hard just to have a separate forum? Would it be a lot of work? Or simple to do?

He could replace the Technical forum, which is stupid and barely used anyway

In a perfect world, but the anonymity and isolation that is the internet brings out the worst in us. There’s a reason there is a saying ,”Never discuss politics or religion”. It’s because they are 2 things people feel VERY strongly about. So, you get people who are mostly good that let their bad side get the best of them. I’m certainly guilty of it.

Maybe to you, but there a lot of posters who disagree. Take a poll. But even that wouldn’t reflect true numbers because it’s off-season, and a lot of people who would want separate forums don’t check in often now.

Finally someone actually points out an issue.

Tired of hearing “tagging doesn’t work” without telling me WHAT doesn’t work.

We can fix this.

Jesus Christ, fuck the tags. No other site uses fucking tags. Just create a separate forum, FCOL

Thanks Lit, we appreciate you as a man of action. 

Actually, that reminds me, would you extend the amount of time we can edit posts to longer than the 1 hour limit?  It would be very useful on occasion.

No, you need a technical forum as a permanent fixture for when people need help with something. And I'm not just saying that because it's named after me. That kind of forum should never go away. If you want another forum all you got to do is make one

The topic buttons definitely do not work properly. I tried many many times, I experimented for at least 45 minutes one day trying as many combinations of clicks of the various buttons as I could to see if there was any way I could get them to work. I failed miserably

It was a great idea and a great attempt at combining our desire to have one open forum versus those who did not want to see the political posts mixed in with the football posts.

So there's really only two options I can think of. One is that you try to fix the existing topic buttons, or for that matter create new ones with a different algorithm. Or simply go back to a traditional style and have Politics as a separate forum

The huge disadvantage of Politics as a separate forum is that without the threads being in front of people's faces, even temporarily, on one main board, you end up getting dramatically less traffic in the politics section and it turns into one big waste of time partisan argue fest with almost no redeeming value. When you've got people who are generally not political jumping in and participating there is at least some valuable conversation that isn't about my biased clan vs your biased clan but about what is good for the country. If you don't have those middle-of-the-road people involved it just becomes a bloodbath worth shit

I like the tagging/filtering system.  My only knock on it is that it doesn't work with every browser so that's going to lead to some people getting chuffed.  :niterider:

Being plenty have weighed in, I agree with Woody and those who like this.  It seems simple enough as long as it is working(Lit said "we can fix this, and I assume he meant the "royal we" lol), even back when folks had to spend a few seconds clicking each time they logged on and raised a ruckus about. 

Americans seem to want something to RAGE at......but apparently after having what's left of their Constitution suspended indefinitely/$6.2 trillion stolen by the rich and the INFLATION that likely is coming and barely mumbling, many have a piss poor way of prioritizing the rage.

What doesn’t work?

The right topics don’t show up?

The button won’t click?

No one is telling me WHAT about them isn’t working.

They work fine for me. Only issue I see is people mistagging threads.

Let’s try to say this in third grade terms. People click on the tags they wanna hide or see, in the forum isn’t hiding the topics they don’t want to see. Hopefully this explains it in a way that even a car salesman could understand

With the nature of this board being what it is, the odd football post will slip through.   Just ignore it and read on.

they just dont filter properly. it is impossible for me to set it to see only one category, for example

i tried closing the browser, clearing cookies and cache, etc, and rebooting. that didnt change anything
