There’s been a bunch of tag suggestion threads on the front page lately and I’d like to filter them out. Can we get a tag suggestion tag?

    tag suggestion: suggestion of a 'tag suggestion' tag

    1. 25

      Tag suggestion posts are rare. There’s been a bunch in the past day or two, but I can’t imagine the pace continuing.

        On IRC, spinda rued the fact that there was no ‘party pooper’ downvote option for your comment. I however appreciate your answering this post straightforwardly.

          I did mean that as a joke, just so we’re clear…

            Is that a lobste.rs-specific IRC channel that I’m unaware of, or a general comment that it happened on IRC?

            EDIT: Well I never, completely missed chat in the bottom right.

                  It was a recent April Fool’s joke that was made permanently available by popular demand.

            we need to go deeper with the tag suggestions.

            I do agree though, it would be nice to filter out the tag suggestion type posts from the meta posts that are usually about the community itself.

              When I saw this I thought I had accidentally submitted a partial draft with the exact same title

                I thought about making something like facebook before facebook existed.

                  Instead, you posted about it on Lobste.rs, and in an alternate timeline, The Zuck just stole it, ran all the way to a time masheen, and now look where we’re at.
