I'm posting this in general because that's probably where it'll get the most eyeballs on it but can people PLEASE start using the tag lists???

Over the past couple of days I've seen a few people joke about how the kpop section is dead and although I know this probably won't make a HUGE difference I think it would help! Personally, I spend most of my time here in the kpop section and I see threads ALL THE TIME like big news announcements or MV releases where the OP hasn't used that groups tag list.

How do you expect people to reply to your thread if they don't even know you posted it??? I probably wouldn't even FIND half of the threads that I end up replying to if it wasn't for the fact that I'm actively trying to get user of the month for September (pls vote for your boy xoxo).

It doesn't even have to be for BIG events either even if your just making a general discussion thread, you could still use the tag lists occasionally. For example, I'm gonna make a NCT 2020 Theories thread later on and I'll probably use the NCT tag list for that.

I know a lot of the people on the tag list are older users who may not be as active right now but our newer users will start to ask to be added to the lists once they see people using them more plus I've seen a couple of people say that they've logged onto here for the first time in a while and been sad to see that they don't have many notifications. It can make people feel disheartened and like they don't have friends here whereas if we started using the tag lists correctly, I feel like this would happen less.

Just some food for thought...

I think this list is just meant to help new users identify who's in the same fandoms as them etc but not everyone in this list actually wants to be included in a tag list. 'Tis why you can find me in this thread but not in Rainbow's taglist thread. Of course people can use this thread for taglists as well but thats not really the main purpose of that list~

Here's the problem with this, in my opinion: the tag lists are useless and difficult.

They are usually not updated regularly. While people are added, it only works as long as no one changes their username. It also relies on users adding themselves to the list. Also, there's no way to just @ a whole fandom here. Finally, a lot of the people on the tag lists are no longer active, and there is no way to see that without checking each individual user.

If we could add ourselves to @-able tag lists like on Discord, it'd be much more useful. As for right now, it's a futile gesture when we have so many users either inactive or semi-active. No tag list is going to revive a forum where only a core group of 100 or less people are keeping it going.

It is by no means a solution for inactivity but I don't think it's an entirely useless effort either, I certainly think this will help even if just a bit until we have something better!

You just quote the list from the tag list thread and then erase the formatting or just copy and paste while admittedly tedious, it really isn't that complicated. Plus, like I said in the OP it doesn't really matter if the whole list of people is still active or not unless your trying to type out each name individually which like I've just said, there's no need for you to do...

I wouldn't call it entirely useless, just very heavily flawed.

True! Otherwise we won't know the comebacks and other Kpop related things
