Tags For Deleted Posts Need To Be Deleted

It would seem to me that a deleted post with tags would be more useful than a tag that hasn't any posts. [example] (if the tags hadn't been deleted). Why aren't all deleted posts purged of tags [example] so that search results are less questionable?

Tag feeds in Ask MeFi don't work in NetNewsWire

Tag feeds (like this one) in Ask MeFi don't work in NetNewsWire though they work in Safari. Can anyone duplicate this or offer me a solution?

Beefy ID3 tags on MeFi Music songs, please!

Hello! I'm addicted to MetaFilter Music. One thing I'd like to encourage is well-fleshed ID3 data. Some of the songs I've downloaded simply say things like "Track 4" and then I can't figure out who the hell provided me with the wonderful ear-candy. Thanks to everyone for posting their tunes!

Display problem on the tag cloud page for MeFi music

Is it just me or are the tags on this page so small as to be useless? They look like they're embedded in 100 small tags. Safari.

Thanks for adding resolved tags to your AskMe posts

Related somewhat to the post below, I'd like to thank everyone who has started adopting the custom of adding "resolved" or "updated" tags to their questions. Browsing those tags can be very interesting.

site to site tag links?

Would it be possible/easy/useful to have a link between a tag page in MeFi and the same tag page in AskMe? I find I want to look at similar tags in both and switching easily would be a convenience.

AskMe tag bug and pony request

Bug and pony request: example page Bug - this is the list of questions tagged in Ask with publishing. When I get to the bottom of the page it lets me click on "older questions". However, many of the questions on page two are the same ones as those on page one. Feature request - Any way to get the name of the OP to appear on the tags page? Right now it just lists time and date. Thx.

'All' tags on AskMetafilter

A couple of days back, I saw a page that listed 'all' tags ever used on Ask.MetaFilter. Clicking the tags didn't take me anywhere (they weren't linked, I think) but the page did exist. Is it still available and will the tags be linked anytime soon ?

Why don't people add tags?

Use of the Damned Tags Filter:
Why don't people tag their posts? A simple addition of Colbert to the previous thread would have made it insanely easy to find.

Scientology-tagged posts averaged 82 comments in 2006.

MetaScientologyFilter. A brief analysis of the number of comments per post with various tags yields the following: Bush is a surefire way to get comments, with an average of 76 comments per post tagged with the President's name, followed by the oft-maligned Newsfilter tag, with 75.6 comments per post. They both beat sex (64.8), video (30.9), and the big loser, art (21.3). But all must bow before Scientology (82). [more inside]

Someone added tags to my post. I'll wear the 'obit' and 'obituary' but the '.' has to go. When I try to delete it i get "Looks like you're trying to delete tags fromto the wrong post. Go ."

List of your top ten answered tags from AskMe?

Tags: User profiles show "Top ten tags used on Ask MetaFilter posts" -- which is neat!, but would it maybe be really neat if there were a "Top ten tags used on Ask MetaFilter answers"? I know that what I've asked about and what I've answered to are in pretty different realms.

Can we have a usertags page?

I really like the "Users that often use this tag:" list on MetaFilter and AskMe, where you can see how often certain users have used a particular tag. Is there any way we could have this tally added to our userpages, or have a "usertags" page a la the "usercontacts" page? That is, when you go to so-and-so's userpage you can see a list of all the tags they've used (like on the Post A Link page) and how many times they've used 'em.

Minor suggestion

Minor suggestion: on Ask, the tag explainer sentence could be rearranged for better clarity. Right now it says something like "Combine words to make a tag (example: ipod stereo audio carstereo)". Perhaps putting the combined example (carstereo) first and providing another example or two would help some of the people who can't seem to grasp tags.

All Tags Page

There was a page that listed 'all' tags that had been used on Ask MetaFilter. I can't seem to find it now. Any clues where it is now?

Suggested use of robots.txt for better searching of MeFi and related subdomains

The tags have gone missing from the ebay scam question.

Tag conveniently gone missing?. Like many others, I've been following the askme thread originally posted by airnxtz where he is found to be a scammer and where hopefully we will soon have word about the consequences of his scamming. Normally I search for this thread by looking at the "all posts tagged ebay", but the question is no longer listed on that page. In fact once I found the question, I see that it no longer has the ebay tag or any other tag. I assume that though airnxtz has lost his posting privileges, he still has the privilege to edit his own tags and has done so. Otherwise, what happened to the tag and can we get it back?

Link to tags on question page

When I'm posting a question on Ask MeFi, I would find it convenient for the question form page to feature a link to the Tags page. For the tag function to be a maximum value, it would seem to me that one should use the tags the group has consensually declared to be the appropriate tags for the subject. Obviously, you can access the tags page in other ways, but a link right there would be nice.

Why do posts without tags appear with the mysterious copy "Tags: Wanna reach people who know their way around the Web? Contact FM." in place of a blank "Tags:" field in the newish Yahoo search results? (posted under bugs out of a better place to file it)

Looking for an old post.

Here or AskMeFi?

i'm not sure if i should post this here or ask mefi, but i'm looking for an old post that i found around Thanksgiving.

It was a blog and/or humorous editorial about Thanksgiving in the White House. Does anyone know what I'm talking about and/or know where I can find it?
I've searched for keywords and searched the tags, but i'm just not finding it.

I didn't put the tag 'gay marriage' on my post, and I didn't change the formatting so as to make comments #2 & #7 nonsensical.

Tags with Phrases

Tags with "multiple words in quotes" instead of onewordwikistyle (and clear guidelines on the tagging convention) might prevent people from making such messes with their tags. (I know the posting area clearly says multiple words should be strung together, but people just don't read, and it's not intuitive.) Granted, I know this would screw up the hundreds of posts already tagged, so then maybe this is better off as a another call for a trusted "tagging clean-up committee"

New tag suggestion method

What's the best way to suggest a new tag for an existing post? E-mailing or IMing jessamyn? The original poster? Or should I just not worry about it? I can just keep a mark of it in my own del.icio.us, but that doesn't help anyone else who wants to search the same thing.

Adding Tags?

Sorry if this has been mentioned before, but I was wondering if readers would ever be able to add tags to a thread. The reason I am asking is that when I wanted to show the video linked at the top of this thread to a friend, I first looked here. When I did find what I was looking for soon after, it occured to me that if I could just add a video tag to the thread, it might help someone else. Again, I apologize for for whining about something that might already be a resolved issue - I don't frequent Metatalk much.
