    What happened?

    What happened to the mage boards everything is all labeled, but you still won't be able to tell from the front page if a thread is frost mage or frost DK.

    The DK forum's threads don't use labels, that way you can distinguish it.

    It's my experiment to see how it will work out for clarity and to keep ambiguous thread names less ambiguous... I can revert it in a few minutes just as I made it in a few minutes

    I can't make up my mind if it looks too clunky now or if it's better.

    Carry on for now

    Don't know if you want feedback but I think it looks good. Adds clarity at the cost of a few characters.

    It's pretty cool. Are you marking them yourself or is it somehow automated?

    I would guess its manual.

    It took me 5 minutes to even realise what had changed lol. I like it though. I might actually use the search feature now...

    I make them myself, as a mod I can simply double click on a thread name to change instead of entering the thread and then editing the first post. Since I visit these forums about 250 times per day it's not really any kind of problem. Although with sufficient knowledge of language parsing, it wouldn't even be that hard to program an automated system that would make the tags based on keywords and their amount used in a thread, but it would have to be implemented in the code of the entire page which is a complete hassle and very inefficient. This is done in a couple of seconds. Most of the time is wasted on correcting fails with square brackets when I'm doing it without looking at the keyboard

    Also hooray my 600th post.

    I very much like that you are labelling threads, Shangalar. It is most useful for the most part, however there are some threads that may not need a label on it such as the Brawler's Guild thread. It's rather obvious that it's solo.

    Keep up the good work though, you have my support. :-)

    It's an improvement imho.

    The labels are awesome! In my opinion, it could improve still by choosing only a few labels and leaving some threads unlabeled.
    Perhaps label only the most important topics for quick-glancing: Frost, Fire, Arcane and Gear, at least for now, so they're sort of set apart from what I consider to be "other."
    But I'm cool with whatever you want to do. I will love and hold it no matter what!

    Hmmm... Tagging only the most important ones... I'll consider it, but you know that everyone feels like their thread is the most important one when they need answers

    I'm kinda late to the party but I love the tags!

    These tags are a great idea! I'm so absent minded that I was like "Were these tags here before?" It's much easier to navigate the threads now =)

    I clicked on this thread for the simple fact that it had to no tag brackets, lol.
