Some of you have been tagging blogs and threads with nonsensical or completely unrelated tags. Starting now, those who abuse the system will lose the ability to use it.

Yes, we track tag submitters. You are not anonymous.

Aw.

Is this an infraction-esque loss, or permanent? Are they contestable?

I saw this coming. I'm just glad that it's starting now... I had some fun with MSI Magus tags :lol:

Nothing to do with infractions. They are permanent and not contestable.
This thread acts as the warning.

I guess my privileges got taken away before I got a warning. That's pretty cool.

I'm glad to see the OP can remove some tags manually. I saw one which I felt was inappropriate in my Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm thread which said "game everyone hates", so I just removed it (I didn't really hear anyone HATE the game, just someone might have wanted to start trouble). I mean, I've seen worse tags, but felt it wasn't needed.

Thank goodness. I was wondering about this, since I've seen a bunch of threads with completely pointless tags. Thanks Cheapy.

Yeah, I didn't realize it was such a big deal.

I didn't see the thread. A PM asking me to stop it or with a link to this thread would have been sufficient.

I didn't even know anyone had a problem with it.

That's on the level of kids forum mods not having a problem with goatse images in threads.

It's inappropriate, immature, and since I'm guessing the tags are searchable, you're screwing with the system.

Just to state, I'm pretty sure I did all this before the thread was even made. In fact, I'd say the thread was made because of me. So, I got punished before there was even a rule set, to the best of my knowledge.

I'm not sure how I was supposed to know I was "warned" without someone linking me here.

Maybe there should be some kind of FAQ or rules listing on the frontpage of the blogs instead of hidden away in an unpopular section of the forums.

Really?

Mistagging a thread on CAG is on par with stretched anuses on a children's forum?

Seriously?

Am I missing a joke somewhere? This is a joke, right? You're joking?

I tagged three or four blogs with my username, before this warning, and stopped before this warning... but I still got banned from tagging blogs, a day later.

Can I have the tagging privileges back, please?

I can't tag blogs either, and I've never tagged them before. Why were my privileges removed?
