Daily Tildes discussion - topic tag standardization/guidelines

Now that we've got viewing specific tags and filtering out tags, to make these most useful we need to start making tagging more consistent. So today I want to talk about some general tagging approaches and figuring out some standards.

Are there particular tags that we should try to keep consistent across all groups? One example: I think it would be good to have one like ask or survey that goes on all topics that are "what's your favorite [something]?" or "what are you playing/watching/reading this week?", etc. That way those types of topics can easily be filtered (or focused on) across all groups. Are there any other ones that will probably be used in multiple groups that we should try to standardize?

Other than that, any other suggestions or thoughts about how we should generally try to organize tagging would be useful. Links to other sites that do tagging well (and/or have good defined guidelines somewhere) would be great as well.

    I know this has been mentioned in other topics, but I'd like to reiterate the idea of auto-complete suggestions for existing tags as a user types in tags for a post. For example, if a user wants to tag a post with "rock", then as they start typing "ro" a list of suggestions could pop up to show possible existing tags, like "rock", "robots", "rockets", etc. If "rock" wasn't suggested, they can add it to create a new tag, which would be suggested to other users in the future.

    This is what it looks like in Atlassian's Jira software, as a reference (the label field).

    This still does not solve the issue of the initialization of common tags, but I think it could help maintaining them in the long run. It could potentially help avoid redundancy, such as users trying to tag posts about Kanye West as "Kanye", "Kanye West", "KanyeWest", etc. If they start typing "Kan", then the suggestion box could show the already established tag "Kanye West", so users are more inclined to just click that tag instead of typing in a new one.

      This is probably the best solution as it'll continue to work as the site grows. A user adds their tags, aided by auto-complete, and then a mod/trusted user can edit if required.

        I don't think it would be that bad. The backend could just maintain a list of "common tags" for each group, and have that list come in as data accessible from the autocomplete script when you're submitting or tagging. Even the 100 most common tags for a group would probably cover most cases, and that's a tiny amount of data.

        I suppose the autocomplete wouldn't necessarily have to only compare what the user has typed to the beginning of existing tags, so theoretically typing "Smash" could suggest "Super Smash Brothers", "Smashing Pumpkins", "Smash Mouth", etc. That should be a pretty minor implementation detail.

        The biggest problem would be abbreviations. "SSB" would not be a suggestion for "Smash", so either the community as a whole would need to establish a convention for abbreviated tags and edit them appropriately, or Tildes could provide some way to create a dictionary of equivalent tags, so tagging something with "SSB" would expand it out to "Super Smash Brothers". Of course, then you open up the potential problem of what to do if two things have the "SSB" abbreviation. That's getting a bit advanced for a simple tagging system!

      You could display the most popular tags first, that way people will standardize very fast. And it should converge towards something that is intuitive for most users.

        Per the documentation, they're actually called groups:

        The different subject-oriented sections on Tildes are called "groups". They have a tilde symbol in front of their name—for example, the group related to music is "~music".

      I have been wondering how specifically I should tag my posts in ~music. Should I include the artist name? But a customized submission form + functioning search would eliminate that need and also give us a good naming convention for song links. That way we can use tags for genres and other descriptors (such as live, chill, new/fresh, remix, mashup, full album, playlist, etc.)

    One example: I think it would be good to have one like ask or survey that goes on all topics that are "what's your favorite [something]?" or "what are you playing/watching/reading this week?", etc.

    I would go with "survey" for that option. "Ask" is a bit more open, and we might want to co-opt it for a different use in the future.

    Here are some random thoughts, in no particular order:

    • Let's add a "casual" tag, for people to let their hair down.

    • Also an "advice" tag, for people to ask for advice.

    • Let's not add a "fluff" tag: adding tags is one way of saying certain types of posts are acceptable.

    • We need to standardise one tag in particular: will the country of the United States of America be identified as "us" or "usa" or "america"? Personally, I vote for "usa" (the use of "america" for only one country on the American continent has a bit of controversy attached to it, so let's just dodge that if we can, and "us" is a bit ambiguous). I would also like us to somehow enforce the use of country tags in the ~news group (and wherever else it's relevant). At the moment, it seems that the only time someone uses a country tag in that group is if it's not U.S. news. I don't want this site to treat the USA as the default option for everything. Also, if we use "usa" for U.S. news, that means someone can use this tag to filter for only U.S. news (they can't do that at the moment). EDIT: On second thought, I think "united states" might be a better tag for this.

    • I think "politics" (instead of "political") is another useful tag.

    • So is "social media" (we seem to have a few posts about this).

    • And "economics" (instead of "economy").

    • The idea that has been suggested a few times about auto-suggesting tags is an excellent idea. If people can see previously used tags, they're more likely to choose a tag that's consistent with previous use than create a new one.

    • I wonder if we can also prevent some tags. I've seen posts tagged with "techology" in ~tech and "hobby" in ~hobbies, and even "games" in ~games, which all seems a bit redundant to me!

    • If we're going for consistency across the site, we might want to get people to use a "talk" tag instead of "discussion" (which is popping up a few times). In the future, this might allow a discussion post in ~books and a post about books in ~talk to be shown under the same sub-group: ~talk.books and ~books.talk could cross-link to each other. Alternatively, if we prefer "discussion" as a tag, let's rename ~talk to ~discussion.

    • One problem is getting people to actually use tags. But I suppose this problem will reduce when trusted tilders can edit tags on other tilders' posts.

    • I wonder whether you could require people to apply at least one tag when making a post. People should be encouraged to think about how to categorise their posts, especially in these early days when the groups are very broad and tags will be used to decide which future subgroups to create.

        Helpful for whom? Most people don't know the standard two-letter code for their own country (I'm not even totally sure what it is for Australia!) - and they certainly wouldn't know the codes for other countries (some of my news articles cover more than one country). There are also three-letter codes which are slightly more recognisable - but we'd still have the same problem with people not knowing the codes for countries other than their own.

        There's no real reason not to use the actual country names (or slightly shorter variations thereof). They're much more recognisable for most people than codes, and we should be designing this website for ease of use by most people, not just those who have memorised ISO standards. And, if Deimos does enable auto-suggestion for tags, it won't require much extra typing to add these longer tags.

    Pretty clean and intuitive.

    Also perhaps users per-group could flag tags as "identical to", "misspelled" or "wrong" and correct it to the right tag. Once like 100 users have tagged something as misspelled/identical-to you could have auto-corrected-spelling or grouped-tagging(as identical).

    Needless to say, if the system gets hammed up then users would quickly tag the automatically adjusted tags "wrong" and rectify the system.

    Does that sound watertight?

    I realize a culture shift toward using roughly the same tags is always going to be the best option, especially on a site that doesn't need to infinitely grow and cater to users who don't want to learn proper conduct, but I wonder if some kind of moderator (and eventually trusted user) handled merging system would be possible. Like in the "Kanye", "Kanye West", "KanyeWest" situation @MajorMajorMajorMajor could these all remain as typed on the posts themselves, but all show the same thing when clicking on one of them? Seems like it would be doable with trusted users being put in charge.

    I could see someone saying this is a watering down of the feature or it causing inter-group conflict, though.

    Glad to hear filtering by/out tags is here. Will subscribing to tags be implemented as well?

    This would help with discoverability. A user could subscribe to, say, the "music.psychedelic" tag and get all submissions with that tag, even if they are not subscribed to ~music.

    I wonder what would happen if I subscribe to "psychedelic" though, would that show "music.psychedelic" or not? And if it does, would it show drug related posts about psychedelics? What I mean to say is that, especially for polysemantic tags, tag hierarchy should probably be used whenever possible. And that might be difficult to standardize.

    Some people mentioned avoiding superfluous tags like #music in ~music. But I think it makes sense to use #music.edm or #music.rock.

    Also, do you think we could get a way to link to tags the same way we link to groups? Like ~music and #music.psychedelic, without having to go through inserting a link with markdown. I think that'd be extremely useful. (I used the hashtag symbol because it's a common one, but it could be anything)

              • It's harder for people to remember "music.rock".

              That said, maybe the tag you want is just "rock music", rather than trying to make it look all fancy like "music.rock". Keep it simple, star.

                No, I meant what I wrote. I understand it might be redundant, but it helps with the organization and standardization of tags, which is what is being discussed here. It doesn't even need to show in the post tags inside ~music, but for search purposes it's better to be more descriptive.

                And it's not about being fancy, it's about what Deimos said was implemented (hierarchical tags). "Rock music" would be fine for me as well, but if we want to take advantage of the fact that tag hierarchy works, maybe music.rock is not a bad idea.

                Edit: Yeah, I misplaced rock and music.rock, sorry.

                Edit2: Spelling!

                  Are you confusing groups with tags? Groups will be hierarchical. For example, in the future, we might see: ~music ~music.rock ~music.rock.classic ~music.rock.metal ~music.pop ~music.electronic...

                  Groups will be hierarchical. For example, in the future, we might see:

                  That's a possible of sub-groups within the main group ~music.

                  Tags, on the other hand, aren't hierarchical. They're just labels applied to a post. A post might have one tag ("rock") or three tags ("rock", "grammy awards", "best song") or more tags ("rock", "tours", "Elvis Presley", "hologram") depending what the post is about.

                  Tags might be used to decide what subgroups to create. If a lot of posts in ~music are tagged as "rock", then the moderators of ~music might see a need for a subgroup for all those posts about rock music, so they'll make ~music.rock. The subgroup will exist within a hierarchy under the main group ~music. But tags themselves don't have a hierarchy.

                    One thing to note is that (as mentioned in the mechanics page), tags can be hierarchical and this filtering supports that.

                    So that's what I was referring to...

                        Don't worry about it. And you're right, I should have said the downsides of music.rock. Sorry about that.

    I have been pretty consistent about labeling all these political discussion threads I've been making in ~talk as politics, but if we decide another standard works better for this, I'm happy to adjust.

    I think auto completing / suggesting tags was talked about. Maybe on the post page have a list of the 5 most common tags for that group / most relevant or something?
