@ossobuco,
Just tagged this thread

http://able2know.org/topic/120032-1

with two tags that I think could be promising; "etiquette," and "wedding."

@sozobe,
I'm making my way through the original writing category in search of two of my own, starting at the back of sorting by new topics..
landagoshen, there is a vast field of possibilities for connections to be made. I've opened several posts and tagged through 25 pages now, but I've left a virtual feast untagged. Only 40 pgs more to go..

did one of yours, soz, on writing and relationships, damn, I forget the tag already. You might revisit that and improve on it, as that seems a rich one.

@sozobe,
I did those and stemmed it to "manners".

Applause to nimh and osso for all the work they've done with this. Wow!

@sozobe,
I'm using the term broadly (perhaps inordinately so) and it is really about word "stems" (e.g. house and household0 but here's more information:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stemming#Examples

What I mean exactly is that the tags become related to each other as they are used together. So a topic tagged apple and computers would show a relationship between the two and when you view the tag "apple" you may see related tags of "food, fruit, computers, mac".

As you guys are entering these tags, the software is learning relationships between them.

@sozobe,
Sozobe, I've barely made a dent. I saw dozens and dozens in those pages, and I've still something like 35 to go, that I'd like to open and check. I left everything by edgarblythe, for example, talk about a gold mine. Lots and lots of stuff to tag-link.

@ossobuco,
By the way, since on original writing the primary posts are all original writing efforts, I'm adding the authors' screen names, something I'm not doing otherwise, or at least have long stopped doing otherwise. Opinions whether I should do that?

@ossobuco,

Neutral

(Seems counterintuitive, as the information about the posters name is already attached to the threads.

I think if you later want to search for something tagged "original writing" by the poster "ossobuco", it would be more effective if that got implemented as a feature rather than going through every thread and adding the same information again as a tag....)

@ossobuco,
Edit: I agree with old europe.

I think names can be used for content though -- stuff about Noddy for example.

I've used "sozlet" for threads about her; have also tagged FreeDuck's about Ducklet. Haven't tagged any Mo threads yet.

Hey, is there a minimum number of letters for effective tags? I imagine one letter is out, but two for example?

@old europe,
I'm confused re this.
I'm fine with a member or family member, etc. as a subject. I've just long stopped routinely putting a thread author on my tags.... if I ever did. I'd rather use the subjects, generally speaking.

What do you mean, implemented as a feature instead of a tag? I'm primarily looking for connections in my tagging, and except for "original works", and now that I'm reminded, people as subjects, am avoiding screen names since I have other connections to make.

@ossobuco,
(The hamster graphics are so cute!)

To elaborate, on Original Writing, I think the authorship of the starter post is more than ordinarily allied, part of the subject... or that's my intuition.


(I can be talked out of adding the 'author', we'll see.)

@ossobuco,
Well, my take is that the author of a thread is already inherently linked to the thread. By virtue of being its author. The information already exists.

Tagging something "Original Writing" makes a lot of sense (because a thread can potentially be anything...), but I would say that, if you'd want to be able to go to everything tagged "Original Writing" and surf across that cluster by author, there would probably be better ways to do that than by adding the information that already exists anew in the form of a tag.

I'd see a feature like "Surf tagged threads by author" and asking Craven or Nick to pretty please implement it as way more effective than going through potentially hundreds of threads and manually labelling them...

@old europe,
I found a way to do that already...

Go to the person's profile (I chose edgarblythe):

Click that person's "My tags".

Choose "original writing"

et voila:

@sozobe,
But doesn't that only work when that poster has tagged those threads?
