i didn't want to bring this topic up to the front page at first, but recent events have made me think a lot about it.
most of you should've noticed by now, that i'm about to listen to >every< entry on this site. initially, i only wanted to listen to some of the first OHCs, because i was curious about the origins of BotB, but then i noticed some (good) entries without any tags at all and tought, i could also add some, if i'm on the site anyway. so i've startet to tag every entry i'd come across to improve their discoverability. (and the taggist points were also tempting, i won't deny that).
at first, i especially tagged entries mainly with their format though, and rarely added other tags. this was before i realized that there is already a feature on the site to filter entries by their format and i will update those redundant tags asap!
i'm now listening to every entry in detail and thinking about suitable tags (e.g. genre or feeling (happy, sad, atmospheric and so on..)) as well as tagging ohb-entries with their theme sometimes (if there is one provided by the bit pack). i'm not even doing this for points anymore, i just want to enhance the discoverability of entries and create some kind of fitting subgroups while i'm listening to past stuff, because i want to contribute something to BotB as well as to the BotBrs and their music as far as i can.
i am aware, that some people are annoyed by the alerts but there is nothing i can do about it except tagging battle after battle and not user after user to reduce the alert-spam :/
i'm also aware of me getting thousands of taggist-points and leveling up very fast and i can understand if some people don't like the idea of me grabbing points with spamming tags (which is not what i intend though!) or respectively getting that much points in general.
and i don't want that either, because i feel kinda bad for BotBrs like Sintel, Robyn, petet etc. if i'm on a similar level like them altough i don't do anything else except tagging their stuff, which feels like i'm pulling myself up on their work .-.
but i don't want to renounce the tagging-feature, because i really like the idea of contributing something or even make some tags bigger than other ;D
thats why, if it is somehow possible, i'd like to
1. have all my taggist points removed and
2. no longer allow my acc to earn taggist points (without disabling the tagging feature itself though ;-;)
because it shouldn't look like i'm going to force tags only to get those damn points.
also i feel kinda anxient right now to continue tagging, because i don't want to look like a greedy scrub, so please let me know, if i should stop tagging old entries at all.
thanks for reading at least!
