Thanks alpha0. I agree that multiple tags may not solve much. I too can think of many tags that could be given to a post. However, will two be better than one? #music, #country, or #music #willienelson, or #countrymusic, #willienelson? What about #astronomy, #space, #mars, #science?
IMHO, trying to solve some social problems can lead you to chase your tail. Actually, I didn't create tags to allow proper categorization of a post, but to give an additional dimension to posting, perhaps a outlet for some creativity. -I don't really have much faith in tagging.
At any rate, I am not going to rush into anything. :)
Over the last couple of days, there has been a large influx of users. The 'trending' and 'new' pages for 'all posts' have changed quite a bit. There are more posts that interest me, and there are more posts that don't. I'm not sure about these pages. My feed has not been altered much however, and I am pretty happy about that. However, I want to see where things go from here.
Personally, I want the ability to create (and tune) a source of information that I find valuable, and to have meaningful conversations with good people about that information. Anything else is secondary.
Of course, what I consider to be good conversation and information is not going to be universally appreciated. However, it's my goal that the platform will be flexible enough that we can each get a version of information and discussion that we find valuable.
In fact, I don't expect Hubski to be one community. More likely, I see it evolving into a number of overlapping communities.
There will always be some things about Hubski that will bother some of the users. -That is inevitable. I do have a vision for Hubski, however. That isn't to say that I won't respond to suggestions. Alpha0 knows I do:) But I generally only do if they fall in line with my feelings about the site.
So, when I say 'duly noted' I do genuinely mean that it will affect my thinking on the topic. However, it's not the same as 'will do'. :)
