Terms / votelater

So this is how I imagine this tag working: When people want to vote on a praxis but don't have enough vote to do it justice right now, they tag it votelater. Then, when they the have the votes a task deserves, they vote and remove the tag, so the page doesn't get cluttered.


VOTELATER refers to the following completed tasks:

Edit: Hey, you can describe tags. Nice. Who knew?

only problem is if multiple people want to tag something votelater - you can only tag something once, and the original tagger controls the tag removal. lossing the link for those others who didn't tag it themselves.

right?

About tags (err, terms) +5

Should this be documented? Yes. Is it? No. Anyway:

For each thing (person, task, completion, etc), each player can assign a group of terms. If you click "edit" next to terms on this completion, you'll see a blank text field (unless you're jjason or babe). So type (in this case) "votelater" (it should autocomplete once you start typing), then hit "add terms".

That'll mean that both you and jjason have termed that completion "votelater", which also increases the weight of that term for that completion. Terms are displayed in order according to their weight: if you termed that completion "babesvotereminder", then "babesvotereminder" would have a weight of 2, and would start showing up in front of "votelater" (which currently has a weight of 1, since only JJason termed it that).

Mouse over the term "votelater", and a tooltip will pop up that says, "Termed by: jjason, [whoever else]".

To change how you termed something (say, you voted and want to get rid of "votelater"), hit "edit" again and just delete the term you want to clear out. Poof! If someone else also termed it "votelater", then that term will still be shown on that completion.

Finally, you can use negative terms. Computer nerds use "!" to mean "not" - for SFZero terms, you can also use "-". So, you can tag a completion "!boring" (or "-boring"). That means that, for that completion, the "boring" term will have a weight of -1, and will show up last in the list of terms. If a term's weight is negative, it'll display as "![term]".

For good and ill, this means you can have term wars: if I term a player "!boring" (so boring weight of -1), and you term them "boring" (so boring weight of +1), they cancel out, boring has a weight of 0 for that player, and the term won't display on their page.

I just realized - there isn't an easy way to find the tasks I tagged votelater when I am ready to votelater. Is there?

It's kinda grungy looking, but now you can go to sf0.org/[username]/terms to see that stuff. Here's yours!

The best!

Err...help?

All of my terms went away. Now the only way I can find things that I tagged votelater is by coming in here, going to each individual praxis and clicking on the edit terms button to see if it's one that I edited with a term. What happened? Help?
