Thank you.

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

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  ·  1093 days ago  ·  link  ·  

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

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

thenewgreen  ·  1093 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  ·  1093 days ago  ·  link  ·  

somebody like the ever present steve perhaps?

thenewgreen  ·  1093 days ago  ·  link  ·  

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

tehstone  ·  1093 days ago  ·  link  ·  

I tried, it's still test1

ButterflyEffect  ·  1093 days ago  ·  link  ·  

I just tagged it test3 and it changed to test3.

lil  ·  1093 days ago  ·  link  ·  

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

thenewgreen  ·  1093 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  ·  1093 days ago  ·  link  ·  

This is the case.

thenewgreen  ·  1093 days ago  ·  link  ·  

I know. I proved it using science.

lil  ·  1093 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).

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

steve  ·  1093 days ago  ·  link  ·  

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

lil  ·  1093 days ago  ·  link  ·  

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

GingerSoul  ·  1093 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  ·  1093 days ago  ·  link  ·  

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

thenewgreen  ·  1093 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.
