Just a quick feature update before Christmas! You can now browse and submit #tags on virtually all profiles on Mod DB, Indie DB and Slide DB. On-top of adding tags you can also up-vote and down-vote other tags depending on whether you think they are relevant or not. Here's the quick rundown:
How to create #tag links:
Whenever you write a word preceded by the # symbol in comments, descriptions and elsewhere it will automatically create a tag, with a link to browse all content connected to that tag.
How to add tags:
You can add new tags, as well as up-vote and down-vote tags on any of the following profile pages.
You will find the tags box on the right-hand side of the page (example below). When you add tags we also highly recommend using the auto suggest ability to make sure all profiles consistently use the same tags for easier browsing - for instance we don't want half the tags to be 'Real Time Strategy' and the other half to be 'RTS' when in theory a user would be searching for tags relating to both).
Who can do what?
- Tag permissions
- Profile Admins: add and delete any tag on their page(s).
- Regular members: add and up-vote and down-vote tags on all pages.
- Guest: Neither, you must be registered to add/give feedback for tags.
We've also enable tags browsing so you can search for any pages that have been tagged with a certain word. Trending tags also show what's currently hot on the network. You can view all items you have (or others) have tagged, by appending /tags to the members profile page like so: Moddb.com (a good way to keep track of stuff you like).
We've launched some great features this year and we have plenty more coming in 2017 so make sure you stick around as roll out more updates on the DBolical Network. If you have any questions or encounter any issues regarding our tags feature please let us know. #Happy #tagging
