Can we have hashtags?

If I want to find threads on a specific topic, player or theme hashtags in the text of what I want can helpful in finding it. Posters could also subscribe to hashtags of their interest. Examples would be stuff like #SerenaWilliams or #Brisbane.

Could this be done?

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

Re: Can we have hashtags?

It can ease and compress the search. Good idea.

Re: Can we have hashtags?

Who would add these tags? Users were able to add tags after the last update, but it was a total mess. Instead of useful tags, people were using this as a way to make dubious jokes and insults.

If you mean automatic tagging, based on the content, then it's possible in theory.

Part of the reason for the issues with tagging was that people could do them anonymously, hence the insults and jokes. This one would be done in posts so we'd be able to see who made them and hold the people who made them accountable. If you're still worried, perhaps there could be a function for moderators to moderate and/or remove hashtags as necessary.

edit: anyone would be able to add a hashtag

A horrible idea IMO. The abuse will be rampant and I'd guess the mods already have full plates. Using advanced search one can find any and everything whether in titles only or in all text.

Re: Can we have hashtags?

of course the hashtags got of out hand in no time after the last update, but some of them were really funny. bar the blatant insults, racism and sexism of course...


Азаранка. Plíšková. Đoković.

cheering for crowd favorites is so fedal.

Re: Can we have hashtags?

You need to have a lot of people who want it to get it installed. Start a poll.

No, because you've been all bad and you don't deserve it!

It was a disaster. We don't need anymore opportunities for people to be abusive, sexist, and racist, nevermind just plain petty.

It's not the same thing as before. I'm talking about hashtags that would appear in posts i.e. #VenusWilliams #AustralianOpen etc, which is different from the anonymous tags that previously appeared at the bottom of posts because you can see who makes them.

It's no different from making an ordinary post, tbh.

Re: Can we have hashtags?

I believe in order to start a poll, you'll have to start a new thread for that and it will be an option when you are making up the OP.

Re: Can we have hashtags?

Did you guys actually listen to me? #Hashtag

EDIT: Why do we have hashtag subscriptions in our user CPs and no active hashtags?

It's just part of the plugin that allows for @mentions
