Profile tags pony? February 23, 2021 2:40 PM   Subscribe

MeFi user profiles show a user's most used tags for the Blue and the Green. Could we find a way to add, and would other users be interested in adding, FanFare and maybe MeTa tags to that, too?

No immediate take on this mod-side (it's doable in principle but we haven't talked about it at all), but happy to have folks in the community talk about their thoughts.

I mean, I guess sure, but not a priority. Just seems, based on the earlier thread, that there are a ton of priorities and frimble has their hands full, and maybe this can hold off until those can be dealt with?

As an ignorant borderline non-participant in both venues being discussed, I’d nevertheless suggest yes for FanFare, no for MeTa.

... since MeTa serves many functions, it seems like tracking it in this way might have unintended negative consequences. But, again, WTF do I know? Probably nothing. I dunno, just be careful is all, maybe I’m just paranoid.

I wonder whether most-used MeTa tags would be all that useful--per the Infodumpster, the majority of site members who have made a MeTa post have only made one or two (which leads me to think there's a good chance the majority of site members have never made a MeTa post at all).

Generally into this (especially for FanFare) as well as the option to toggle new fields since people might have been tagging with the expectation of some privacy, especially in MeTas. My +1 isn't an endorsement of reshuffling the development schedule or asking for an implementation date.
