    Hello everyone

    It has come to our attention recently that several users have been exploiting the tagging feature.
    We have received various complaints about being tagged in unrelated threads and tag lists that often consist of
    50 or more users.
    Tagging is not meant to just make sure everyone sees your thread. Tag your friends, people you really want to read this or people who specifically told you to tag them (for events,voting and such).

    If you get reported for mass tagging we will inform you about it and warn you in a friendly way at first, if it continues however, we will have to limit your ability to tag people.
    If the mass tagging still doesn't die down after repeatedly doing this however, we will see ourselves forced to go back to the tag limit of maximum 5 users per post.

    We won't give you a specific number, because we are pretty sure you know when you might just went a little bit over the top with tagging, so please keep it down and don't take the feature away for things that really warrant several tags!

    Don't feel scared about tagging multiple people now though.If it's all of your friends (or the people belong to a related fandom etc.) and they are all okay with it and nobody complains it is perfectly fine!
    We are really talking about unnecessary mass tagging here.

    Thank you!

    ~Your AKP Team ​

    Hmmmm I think users should ask other users to stop tagging them
    Especially if it’s happened more than one time

    But how would I know when I'm mass tagging if the people in my tag lists don't personally confront me to tell me they don't want to be tagged :')

    Because they originally told me they wanted to be tagged -_- there are just specific people who don't interact with my threads anymore and I don't know if they still want to be tagged

    This post isn't referring to those who did ask though, it's about users who are promoting their everyday thread by tagging bunch of users, some even randomly and have no connection to them, in the hopes of giving their own thread activity.

    I'm aware of this, but also if someone doesn't want to be tagged constantly anymore they could maybe consider what I do sometimes mass tagging. Either way though, my original post here was meant to be of light nature so there is no need for further discussion on the topic. I understand what this rule meant.

    It is fairly needed to make users aware of the very annoying situation of being tagged 20 times a day for no reason or something you’re not interested in just to figure out your other important notifications get pushed down
    This is more a heads up that there can be taken action against these things - then common sense would be to not tag users who haven’t showed any kind of interest in the thread you’re about to make before or you have never talked to them, which in the end makes it weird to tag them only so they can see your thread
    We are free to choose which threads we find interesting to read and click on instead of being tagged in totally random threads ^^

    the only people having a problem with this are the ones who ping randos to get their thread attention

    I don't feel this rules was needed

    if people don't want to be tagged they just have to ask the person to stop
    and just ignore the notification of this person that's all

    I've been mass tagged in Red Velvet threads at least four times today and I haven't gotten a single notification.
    Is this new rule disabling all tags if the op goes over a limit?

    Staff did feel this rule was needed, because it affects us as well, and that's what matters. We've been getting tagged in some of these threads and it interferes with our notifications and thus our ability to see & deal with notifications on other issues. People shouldn't have to ask to stop being tagged, it should be the other way around, people need to ask if you want to be tagged. This has nothing to do with people tagging their friends, or other users in their fandom, it's when someone starts a thread and tags a ton of people they may not even know (some have basically just been tagging the entire online users list) so their thread won't flop. This rule will not affect 99% of users so I'm still not sure why so many seem to think it was unnecessary.

    No, as far as I know there is no rule disabling tags as there is no "limit" so to speak. Punishments for tagging are on an individual basis. However, since the main site revamp there have been issues with tags working sometimes, and there's really nothing that can be done about it. Sometimes tags also break if there are too many users tagged at once. It's also possible the tag was added in later (if the post has an edit history) which would mean you would not get a notification.

    Forum staff have nothing to do with the pop-up, that was the site owners. As for the rules, if you don't like them, you're not required to use this site?
