    If you can't make the the two clicks to put a thread tag on a Stern Forum thread make news/politics threads in the Politics Forum and any other thread in the Bar. The untagged threads get moved there anyhow and the OP avoids the negs given for having to move it.

    If you just have to comment on some stale bullshit, copy/paste the post into a new thread and leave the old threads in the past. I don't care if you are the greatest poster in Shed history you get three or more days off for bumping old threads.

    Why is this such a big issue? What the fuck is so important about these tags? 90% of the threads either turn into a right vs left political clusterfuck or some moron posting pictures of food, anyway....

    People want the tags to identify Stern related threads and avoid political threads.

    Are you guys adding on a new tag? Like a miscellaneous one? When I'm not sure, I just use the "entertainment" one. ;)

    The number of complaints I receive has dropped considerably and I've gotten a lot of positive feedback from the Stern only people. But it only works if members comply so I have to be a hardass about it..

    Lock the older threads if you don't want people posting in them. An unlocked thread is a free to post in thread otherwise.

    I don't understand the issue in bringing up an old thread in the first place? Surely that's less congestive than starting a new thread about an old topic?

    How old does a thread have to be to be considered "too old to bump"?

    TIA

    I don't think we can add any more, entertainment or WTF are good choices if you aren't sure.

    I hate the tags. Makes the topics look so cluttered.

    Stupid idea.

    We can move politics into the politics forum and ban it in here, remove the tags and get back to the way it was. I have no problem with that.

    It is strange that we have a politics forum but people want to post it in here, no doubt.
