ButterflyEffect  ·  1150 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What kind of posts do regular hubski users like to see?

If you take a look through the tags and different feeds you can get a feel for what kind of things are submitted here. That said, there isn't much in the way of a focus post wise, there is an avoidance of low effort content, which is good. But aside from that I'd recommend looking at tags, chatter, and community to see if you have an interest in what everyone is posting and talking about.

Welcome to Hubski.

Thank you, I have a question: I have seen posts with 3 tags, most of the time the third tag is used to tag posts as spam, how is it added? Who adds it? I ask this because I have seen this user and all his posts are spam.

After your hub wheel in the top left corner gets filled up completely for the first time, you'll be able to add community tags. These are usually a third tag that people think might be relevant for the post.

As a service, people will sometimes tag spam posts as spam. That way, it will not show up on the global feeds of anyone who filters the #spam tag.

Thank you.

Edit: if more than one user wants to add a third tag, which tag is added?

user-inactivated  ·  1150 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Hmm. I'm not familiar with the specific mechanics. Maybe mk or thenewgreen could swing by and let you know.

Also, in case you didn't know, you can put the "@" symbol on both sides of a username. This will not only link to their profile, but it'll also notify them that they have been mentioned and they will see your comment.

thenewgreen  ·  1150 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Yeah. It's the most recent tag, or it's the one most suggested. Most suggested supersedes most recent.

lil  ·  1150 days ago  ·  link  ·  

I thought any new community tag wipes out the previous one...but maybe some of mk's secret sauce is at work here.

thenewgreen  ·  1150 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Let's test.

I tagged it test1

Now you tag it test2 and we will have someone then tag it test 1 again

Then we will attemp a test3

lil  ·  1150 days ago  ·  link  ·  

somebody like the ever present steve perhaps?

thenewgreen  ·  1150 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Okay. steve, kleinbl00 or ButterflyEffect or anyone reading this with the ability to community tag, try adding the tag #test3

tehstone  ·  1150 days ago  ·  link  ·  

I tried, it's still test1

ButterflyEffect  ·  1150 days ago  ·  link  ·  

I just tagged it test3 and it changed to test3.

lil  ·  1150 days ago  ·  link  ·  

It must be the butterfly effect or maybe you have super powers!!

thenewgreen  ·  1150 days ago  ·  link  ·  

that proves that it's the most suggested not the most recent that takes precedent. In the event that there is a tie between two tags, it goes to the most recently suggested of the two.

mk  ·  1149 days ago  ·  link  ·  

This is the case.

thenewgreen  ·  1149 days ago  ·  link  ·  

I know. I proved it using science.

lil  ·  1149 days ago  ·  link  ·  

My head hurts from all this science. ... So wait a sec: two votes went in for test1. tehstone tried test3 (one vote) and failed, but the secret sauce remembered tehstone's attempt, so when bfx tried test3 - it said -- ahh, a new tag with two votes. So now presumably, if someone tried to tag it #test2nyehnyeh or whatever... that should be the newest at 2, but either #test1 or #test3 will supercede it?

But just to make sure no one adds coyote juice to the secret sauce, no one gets more than one chance.

Ahh science (my head hurts).

GingerSoul  ·  1149 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Thank you for testing this, it works in the best possible way.

steve  ·  1150 days ago  ·  link  ·  

I tried to tag it something else and it stayed as test3

lil  ·  1149 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Try and tag it #test2nyehnyeh or #test1 again. Let's keep trying till we break it. (no, just kidding)

GingerSoul  ·  1149 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Don't be afraid to break it, that's the only way to find bugs so they can be fixed. Do you remember the one character account bug that was discovered a few days ago? If nobody had tested that, today your account would be at risk of being hijacked by a malicious user.

Thank you, I don't know how I missed the notification for your reply. If I edit my answer does it notify new users I may add in the edition?

That's another question for the guys that run this place. I honestly don't know. I'm sorry.

GingerSoul  ·  1149 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Can we test it? Instead of replying to me edit your comment.

thenewgreen  ·  1149 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Edits to comments don't prompt a new notification. However if you shout-out to a user in your edit, they'll receive that notification.

See our primer page for more info. Cheers and welcome.

That was what I was trying to ask (shout-outs in edits), thanks for understanding my poorly worded question.
