What are your favorite topic tags on Tildes?

I'm sure it comes as no surprise to anyone familiar with what I generally submit to tildes that videos, history and history.military are my favorite topic tags... but some of the other slightly more obscure ones I also enjoy (all music related) are live, soul.blue_eyed, singer_songwriter, and cover_songs.

What about you all? What are your favorite topic tags on tildes?

p.s. If you provide the associated https://tildes.net/?tag=topic_tag links to the ones you mention so that we can all peruse them, that would be greatly appreciated. :)

        This post got my attention about how tags work here. Right now it's difficult to understand how ~groups and tags will work together in the future of Tildes. I'm not trying to downplay the development structure here. I'm just fascinated by the potential 'out-of-the-box' function(s) of this particular system.

          Only Deimos can probably say for certain what will happen in the future with them, but I imagine they will likely work similar to how they work now, essentially acting as precursors to groups when it comes to subjects, and continue to assist user discovery, filtering, and to provide additional context to topics. But as all these interconnected systems (groups, tags, metadata, etc) get more refined and developed they can also begin to compliment each other more, and become more valuable as result, e.g. tag filtering by group/domain/channel/author with &/OR/NOT, user customizable "views" using them (similar to multireddits but with more options and potential), etc.

            Yes. Everything that you just eloquently stated is what makes this all so fascinating. I look forward to how this transpires into something, at least in my opinion, is unique.

    Mathematics - I'm a mathematician in my heart of hearts; this is one of my favourite topics.

    Cover Songs - which were already mentioned, but are something that I enjoy a lot. I'm especially fond of covers which break genre rules, like Frog Leap Studios or Brass Against.

    Board Games - one of my favourite hobbies; there's a lot of great information in this tag, and I see myself all over the place in comments in here.

    Canada - my home.

      Speaking of, hopefully Tildes eventually grows enough that canada.ontario isn't just a topic every few months.

      And yeah, boardgames are great... but I am not quite as obsessed with them as you seem to be. :P Me not having enough friends living close by to regularly get together to play any is probably a factor there though... although Tabletop Simulator is a decent enough option, so at least I still get to play boardgames with others sometimes.

        It takes a while, but then you have a captive audience for a good long while to play board games with and they're not really good at for the first 6 or 7 years, so you can win a lot.

    Huh. I don’t seem to register tags at all. ADHD is weird.

      Do you have "Show topic tags in listing pages (home page, groups, etc.) " checked in your user settings? That makes a huge difference for how easy they are to notice, IMO.
