Why somebody set tag "please rename" everywere?



  • More 120 pages in wiki mark this tag. Why?
    If we solve how title formed - ok? we need say trolls about it, and they renamed all pages automatically.
    But 120 tags seems as project Elf Spam.



  • I think, it started with the discussion about the standardized Wiki page titles. CamelCase, underscore etc. Perhaps it took more afterwards



  • Yes, it started after it, but I think is bad, It's junk. I created translations today and after half hour all my translations were marked this tag.



  • Then someone uses it to get points? Project elf effect?



  • I think while the tagging is not regulated and mainly during Project Elf we will experience similar "effects".



  • It is similar to "devnet" tag...



  • VCsala, no, "Devnet" is old tag for topics about devnet.

    But tag "wiki" in wiki and tag "faq" in faq is junk too.



  • but devnet is used more then 500 times... "see":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/tags/?tag_search=devnet



  • Beta Testing (472) - its all about devnet. But, Yes, of course, it not good too.



  • So these tags do not help anymore and should perhaps be deleted.



  • I think people should tag more appropriately and on the topic.



  • That's simply impossible if you promise prizes. "My article":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/wiki/ThreadsEventsQObjects on threads in Qt says that it's not an article about parallel programming, and every day someone tags it with "parallel programming", "concurrency", "mutex"!

    True.

    Little out of topic but nice article BTW :)



  • I have to say that if you check some "profiles" you will see that they are on a tag spree ... They have scored lots of points with very few wiki contributions or posts.

    I think this will all go away when we are done with the "elf" but for now tags and "rates" are being over utilized just to score points.

    Which indeed pollutes the tag searches. After the elf-effect will we have to retag everything? :-(

    By the way, are there any STRONG guidelines to consider when it comes to tag a piece of content?



  • I've updated http://developer.qt.nokia.com/wiki/Tagging now. It's the start of the tag guidelines peppe.

    It includes a list of "bad" tags that I have removed and will keep pruning out. The Tag module we use has a "bad tag" feature where I will add them later on.



  • mariusg You added to bad tags "faq" into FAQ, but what about "wiki" into wiki? :)



  • At some point, when we have all agreed on which format is best to use, we will have to clean up in the wiki. I don't see any particular need for a tag that sorts those pages though. It can go. :)
