BETA UPDATE: Feb 13 2014 - Tag Reporting and more
Hi, we have a few updates to the tagging beta today:
  • There is a new reporting option next to popular tags on game pages. You can click the flag icon to report a tag, which will downvote the tag. Right now there are four report reasons:
    • Offensive/abusive tag
    • Not appropriate for this product
    • Not a helpful tag
    • Spoiler
  • In general, tags need to be applied by more users before they will show on the popular tags section
  • "For You" / Recommended tags will only recommend tags that apply to multiple games
  • Fixed an issue where swear words would show unfiltered in some places

Please keep the feedback coming, we're continually working to improve the feature.

+1 on the tagging of games people don't own.

I like that we can flag tags and downvote them. This will be helpful, I assume that this was something that was thought of beforehand as to the quick implimentaion of the feature.

Library implementation of personal tags to replace category sorting, please. Take your pick of the threads with 50+ comments all wanting this feature.

Filters would be nice. Filter for only players that own the game (should be the default). Filter for only players that have played a minimum number of hours (5? 10?). Filters to only see tags from friends.

Please also make it clear that tags shouldn't be reviews. Any one-word or few-words review, however clever, is going to be snarky. I'm astonished that some of the developers aren't furious with tags like "not a game" or "bad". It's like intentionally trying to tank their sales.

Can you just tell us you're going to work on this soon?

Now just add an option to vote as a duplicate. Good work though.

I would like it if you could report duplicate tags, as well.

Can you please have a system in place that could prevent developer abuse or general "farming" abuse that alters tagging?

There are some really meaningful tags (and obviously some pretty silly ones) that I'm certain some devs may not like. As with any moderation or reporting system that is open, devs or people with an agenda can "farm" to alter these tags. I'm not sure if there is a way to prevent that yet maintain as much openness as possible... but if there is, please make it happen!

I would love see an option to turn them off.

You could give users tagging ranks to weight the values of tags. Adding a lot of accepted tags lets the user rise in rank. Users who add nonsense tags which doesn't get accepted or purged from the system will not rise in rank. Users who violate the system will get their rank reduced.

I agree, being able to hide community tags would be a welcome feature.
al switch to system of list of tags people can pick from and way to submit new ones to be added to list of possible tags after review...

allow only people who own the game for more than n hours to tag it

Bug-Spelling error in hover over of tag reporting flag
There is a spelling error when you report a tag.

Reproduce
Report a tag, choose a category, click ok

The hover over for the flag on the tag you reported is

"You have repoted this tag"

repoted not reported
