Tagging feedback

More Tagging Info
So some of you may have noticed that tags work great if you are just searching for individual tags. For example, searching midrange only brings up decks with midrange tags. But when you start searching for multiple tags there is a problem. For instance, If you search Green, Blue expecting to get only decks with the Green and Blue tags, you will be sorely mistaken. You will get decks tagged Green or Blue, as well as Green & Blue. This can be fixed albeit clunkyly
in the url type https://boards.faeria.com/tags/intersection/green/blue/. To my knowledge this can only be done in the /tags section. Adding “intersection” before the tags allows you to search for multiple tags.

I recently created a bunch of tags in my quest to make it easier to navigate the forums. Tags make it easier to perform advanced searches for keywords. Since I just created the tags, I’ve had to manually add the tags to all the posts. If people like them I’ll continue doing this. If not I’ll remove them. There are still tags I need to make, but please suggests tags you would like to see. I’ve reached my editing limit for the day so I can’t add any more tags to posts, but if any of the higher trust level peeps want to help out I would appreciate it.

The current ones are listed below. I’ve broken them up by which categories they will probably be most used but they can be used anywhere.

Features of tagging

Users can choose to auto watch tags as desired

Users can list all tags, and filter topics by tag

Users can ignore notifications from posts with specific tags

You can search by tags by clicking on the search icon on the top right of the screen and hitting the options link. You can edit your tags preferences by going to your profile and clicking on the preferences menu. Tags are limited to five per posts. Right now tags are used the most in the Hub->Decks portion of the forums, but I hope to expand them soon. I’ll continue to update this post, but for now thanks for reading!

I’ve added some descriptions for each tag to give an idea of how they would be used. I’ve also incorporated some new tagsThe only thing I’m worried about is having too many tags. With the short description, as well as using them in combination, I feel like the content in posts can be more informative based on their titles and tags. I will continue tagging posts with these tags up to my daily edit limit every day. Any additional feedback from everyone would be nice. I avoided using tags like mono, tri, dual, and quad, because I feel like the individual color tags used in combination are enough. The exception is when a deck uses all the colors. Because of the tag limit, using all the colors would already hit that limit. Rainbow will be used instead. I hope everyone finds this useful.


It’s not really feedback-related, but, as Xaxazak had once mentioned, there is a lot of custom cards threads around. Probably even enough for some small independent category (we have “#custom-cards” channel in discord, after all). Totally enough for a separate tag for them.

Speaking of Discord, it would be awesome if YakBot would include tags into its posts in “#boards” channel. Or at least - post some information about category - it’s hard to get any useful information from posts that look like this:

I think that another tag should be added - “cheap” - for decks that contain very few epics and legendaries (or even none at all). Right now, the “beginners” tag is doing double duty, denoting both decks that are cheap to craft and those that are easy to play, which makes picking the right deck a bit more time-consuming than it could have been.
