Default Tag rules

I'm curious, is stealing other people's tag against the rules?
My tag on here is "shootforthemoon♥". I am the original user of this tag. But over the past couple days, I've seen many other people use it or make their own variation of the tag. This kinda ticks me off. Is it actually against the rules?

Default Re: Tag rules

I really don't think it is against the rules. I find it a bit irritating, when I see people use my tag, but I think that it is "no harm done", really.

Ooh.. you were the one placing that tag everywhere? Cool. I see it a lot lol

I don't think it's against the rules. It wouldn't really bother me, because I'd be happy that people like the same things I do and are using my tag

Default Re: Tag rules

It depends on how you use the tags. If you are putting that specific tag on every thread you post on/view, then it could get frustrating because if you search that tag for threads you've tagged, you wouldn't only get your tags but the ones of others who also wrote that tag. That would be the only reason why I would want a rule on it. But if you're only putting that tag on threads just to make it known forum-wide, then no, I don't think you would need a rule because, in this case, that phrase is commonly known and wouldn't be able to be owned by one person.

Default Re: Tag rules

I do see some people who have inappropriate tags (Not super inappropriate, just some stuff like "I hate my life" or something. But that does sound irritating. Knowing myself, I would start spazzing out on my computer if that happened to me, LOL.

Did you know if you click on a tag you can find out who wrote it? So you could click on the shootforthemoon thing if it wasn't yours and message the person who wrote it.

I can see why you are frustrated but I don't think there is a way to stop people from using your tags. Its just a tag though right?

I don't think it's against the rules (unless it's copyrighted), though.

Default Re: Tag rules

I've noticed this too; I stopped using tags because it was confusing me...I tag threads that I need to check later (like a GE or a club I've joined), but I was puzzled when other threads came up with that tag. When I clicked on them to edit tags, I found out that someone else had used my tag on that thread. I just stopped because it was pointless. It's just a tag; you don't own it, so anyone else can use it. I've only reported a tag twice because they were tags with hateful messages directed at a certain member, but other than that, I think the only ones that have a reason to go are if they are inappropriate.

And at the end of the day-it's a little tag on a forum: it's not the end of the world.
