Tags spam

  • Some users add stupid tags in my forum. Is there a way to know who writes which tags? Then I can ban them.

    The user is recorded in the bb_tagged table. In that table are

    tag_id

    user_id

    topic_id

    tagged_on

    From there, you could figure out the tag_id of the offending tag, then who applied that tag. Then you could deal with it.

    Personally though, I just delete stupid tags.

    It’s a small forum, but I don’t really get people tagging and I’m not sure I see the use in general anyway (if no-one minds a discussion?). I’m really just tagging because it’s there. I can see how it’s useful for images, yeah, but topics doesn’t seem to be the sort of thing tags are useful for. They lend themselves to text-based searching so well anyway. Maybe if you really liked reading through topics by theme?

    Thanks a lot.

    heh heh heh

    And we’ve been told that staff couldn’t see who made tags over in wp.com land. ;)

    I didn’t mention it when it was brought up, but I knew that when that was brought up drmike! ;)

    Actually I can’t see them digging through the databases like that just to do a lookup for a tag.

    If they would, they would had dug for all those attached to the Girly Themes thread. “Sexist” “Stupid” etc.

    Point is, it would be a simple plugin to right to create a tag cloud of the tags that a person puts up by pulling the information from the database as an admin tool though.
