I just replied to this thread and didn't realize until after I posted that it was tagged as Java. It shows [Java] in the titlebar (which I never read anyway), but on the page itself "Java" is never mentioned. Could we get the tags to be shown with/below/nearby the thread title?

 

On an unrelated note, when I created this topic it was automatically tagged as CSI... what is that, and why?

This is a bug? I'm sure I recall tags and prefixes being shown in the thread view.

 

Oh did you remove the CSI tag? I didn't see it here so I thought tags in the thread was broken but I see it works in other threads and the CSI tag is gone. It's just prefix tags that aren't showing up in the thread view

Is it a bug? On that thread (and others) I see no tags (except, as I said, in the page title under html/head/title in the HTML, but nowhere on the actual page)...

Yeah, I edited the thread after I posted and removed the CSI tag. Here's a screenshot of what it was like:

Your wish is my command!   However, I would like to see tagging like [CSI] mandatory for this forum as we move to an approach where tagging is extremely important (and you can do stuff like subscribe to tags).

Ah, that makes sense. Thanks.

Actually, just a request for tags as they become more important: can we get descriptions with tags, like StackOverflow has? It'd be nice if, when I mouse-overed the CSI tag, a little pop-up said "Comments, Suggestions, and Ideas" (and maybe added any additional notes that  might be relevant, like StackOverflow does).

You read my mind.  ;)   We're working on this right now.   ALL tags will have popup tooltips that allow you to "follow" a tag.   Then each tag page will be a central hub of sorts for that tag.   We've wanted to do this for years but we haven't really been in a position to do it.
