    This new labeling system makes the forums almost as difficult to read as an Max 6 patch imported into max 7. It is like having the teletubbies dancing around, while the actual topics are dressed in a grey tshirt. Maybe if the labeling was to the right of the topic it wouldn't be such a struggle.

      well *I* like it. It'll take some getting used to, of course.

      It's getting worst with the teletubbies styley coloured blocks occcupying the whole width of the column...

      it could be worse. for example they could have rounded corners. or a bad scheduler.
      and it will be worse. because now that labels are introduced, people will request additional labels or complain about the exsisting ones.
      i´ve also noticed that you can not connect them to each other using signal cords.

      Roman Thilenius, I never thought I'd teach you something but here it goes: you first have to get out of presentation mode. ;-)
      Anyway, I do miss custom tags. I did tag my own opened topics and I seem to remember that any forum member also had the ability to contribute and add tags to any topic... that was useful, together with a comprehensive search system (which we also don't have right now). Regarding complaining about this tagging system (you did foresaw this, Roman!), I think some words need to be clarified:
      advice - to be used when seeking for advice or when giving advice? help - to be used when seeking for help or when helping?
      There are words that don't carry this ambiguity, like "contribution" and "doubt"/"question".

      Hi dudes. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the new tagging feature. It's tough to get everything right on the first go, especially with such a large and active community.
      I appreciate the candid feedback.
      We've rolled out a small set of custom tags because it allows us to test the feature with you guys without going overboard. Start small, get the core running well, then scale out and build on it.
      This allows us to tweak the feature along the way, along with your input, instead of just dropping a big load on the website and then playing Whack-a-Mole with bug fixes and breaking more things.
      Ultimately, the tags are a secondary tool. I think it's still the most helpful to create topic titles that are informative and relevant so all the other users can understand what it's about. Current topic title included. :)
