Should mylot do something about the tags?
June 5, 2009 8:24am CST
Since a lot of people do not tag discussions perhaps it would be an idea if mylot adds an automatic tagging script which scans the article for important words like Bukisa does with their script Zemanta. What do you think is it fine as it is now or should mylot change it?

We have the possiblity of adding tags and if we use the tagging system properly we can increase the views to our own discussions. Not many users seem to have realised this yet though. If, for example, we are posting in a particular interest, then if we tag all those discussions, whether we start them or respond on them, with the same tags, then they will show up in the columnn on the right under 'similar discussions' when a discussion is open. The discussion at the top of the list is the one which has received a comment or response more recently so all we have to do is keep ours up to date and they will continue receiving responses and there will be no need to keep starting new ones. Beleive me it works as I have at least six of mine with responses this week and all of them were started months ago In conclusion to answer your question, I am perfectly happy the way things are right now.

Do you mean updating as in adding tags or commenting on people´s replies? Sometimes there are no replies to comment on though or people just don't react back, what should I do about this? Cheers for your reaction, it's utmost useful.

it is a good idea though but you know guys putting tag on a discussion can help on our earnings here since its a part of our participation but if mylot would take your suggestion then i guess it means its our lost.. not to argue with you about this but i am contented with what the current system has. if something i want in mylot to focus is on gathering more tasks for us.. Your comments about this are welcome..

Hi there. I think it's a very good idea. Well, maybe this could serve as an enhancement but not literally replace the old system. Two heads are better than one. I mean, I think it would be a lot better if it would work two way. I like your idea though. I hope mylot admin sees this...

As mysdianait said tags are very important in discussions since they can make the difference between no responses or a few responses and being featured in the popular discussions tab as well as in the similar discussion list of your own discussions meaning you would get even more popularity, exposure is key.
