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?
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.
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'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.
