DIR-GUE tag is a great addition

    This morning I noticed you've added a DIR-GUE "tag" to posts in that forum (I assume that's where it came from). Are you planning to add tags like this anywhere else?

    Is there anywhere else we need to add them?

    The request was for an additional forum, and the traffic just isn't there. I suggested the tags and we're trying it out. Many seem to like them with only one negative so far.

    I'd like to seem them on the basic scuba section. Many folks don't notice that a post is in the kid gloves section and are sometimes too sharp in their replies to those threads as a result.

    I guess you have to be careful. If you add them to too many subforums, they become common and don't stand out anymore.

    Throw my hat into the "LIKE" group. I don't think they're necessary all over the place. Helps me skip the UTD threads..... :D

    Like them a lot. And agree, they should not be used for everything or they lose their purpose.

    Interesting. Very interesting. You can find them in the classifieds as well.

    I think I may have be the "one negative" comment. :p

    I dont really see a need for them, doesn't bother me though. If it helps others to feel more empowered then I say keep em.

    Another vote for this and a like in general.

    Since I don't read "forums" I rarely pay attention to where a post is coming from. I simply click on "New Posts" and start reading. I assume others do this too.

    That's exactly what I do, hence my screenshot and comments above.

    Another vote for this for the same reason. It seems like at least half of the threads in basic scuba, someone needs to jump in and remind people that the thread is in basic scuba.
