I still dont get it .....



Me too.....I am too stupid for all this - never got the point of facebook and co too, but seems that a lot of people like these things

Or maybe they are just scared of casandra...


Oh oh pito....I would not have dared to speak this out......I would be scared of the verbal thirst of revenge of the best-ever-not-moderator-wannabe :unsure: but very likely you are right :P

I know, you can post a pm to a specific person, but say, I need help on this forum, and I need Adrian, to help me out, I could just tag him here... and the matter will be brought to his attention straight away. This is better than :

Private:
Dear Adrian,

Casandra and Pito cant quite fathom 'tagging'. Could you please explain it to them.
Please visit the 'Suggestions' subforum .

Thanks,
Ameya

Public

Does this make it clear Casey? :P


wow...Ameya, you called me.....

yup but still if you're asking adrian the favour of explaining the quantum mechanics of tagging to me and pito, then at least spend a bit more time and effort in asking him prettily rather than just tagging him....it's sooooooo Facebook!!!! Hey, I don't have time to write you personally so just visit my facebook page and guess what I ate for breakfast...(or is this twitter? :lol:)

and then getting all these notifications is almost tantamount to getting spam mail....btw, what if just for the fun of it, someone starts tagging me for my expertise....or I'd start tagging you and gebZ for some brainstorming....think of all the posts I can tag you both for? And I would do it, you know....so do you want that? :D


Sorry Casey, I never study quantum mechanics before... lolx
What about give me your facebook link n let me know what you ate for breakfast? I wonder how Canadiam breakfast looks like....

Yes, it is very much Facebook. If tagging was my idea, I would approach a patenting office before posting it here.... :P .

Yes, people will tag each other and thats what it is for, get the person's attention and the notifications could stay on the forum (unless you want them by mail). Newer members wont tag anyone, cause they wont know the frequent visitors to the forum. While the older members will tag people as per their expertise. So, If I want to study fungi tomorrow, I would ask GebZ for help and not Adrian, or you Casandra (BTW what do you work on? Does any body know???? )

and yes, tag bioforum to make you a moderator.... we will support you...
you should have a poll for that.,... we live in a democratic (web)world... we have the member right to elect and retain our 'Moderators'

I know Casey work on SDS-PAGE before...

Note: Technically, I cant call Adrian for help. He too does not have a facebook account and probably wont support the advantages of tagging.
:lol:

Ok Ameya, you just told the world I don't have facebook.... <_<

I do not endorse or not support tagging... but I'm quite sure that if tagging is possible, I already got 4 notifications just on this subforum. :P
Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is like expecting the lion not to attack you because you are a vegetarian.

you guys have been busy in this thread while I was sleeping....hope they don't lock this down (as it happened in the past)....

anyways, there is probably no such setting for tagging so this discussion is moot....but we can always talk about me and how scary I can be....but I will make a good moderator...I promise there will be justice, equality and the continuation of our universal health care system...ooops- now I'm talking like our dodgy federal politicians....:P...

and adrian, no link from me cos I really don't have an account...you can pm me if you wanna know what a canadian breakfast is.....and Ameya, you can also pm me if you really wanna know my expertise...:wacko:....btw, I also wanna start an anti-facebook movement...I wonder if my MP can help me do this...:D...

BTW: I hardly ever notice any problems on the forum.. so either their arent a lot of problems and thus no need to have many (new) mods or the mods are doing a great job getting rid of the problems, so again: no need for a new moderator.. So either way: casandra is "not needed" (as a mod).

Ah, you cant beat logic, can you :lol:

so you're not going to support my bid for a moderating position? that's not very logical....ppfftt....shame on you, pito....:wacko:...:P

I am neutral towards positive endorsements.. so I cant support anyone... otherwise I had to support everyone...

And why would they lock the topic? its still about the tagging...

If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some than not ask and stay stupid.

well, if it has run around a bit or been threadjacked and already has some irrelevant posts- like me being nominated for moderator, then yup, they can lock it....and if I were moderator, yup, I would lock it too....that's how good a moderator I will be....;)

btw, hows this for your new sig, pito: a neutral endorsement for casandra to be moderator!!!! :lol:...

why, LaRa? because I would sleep on the job? :D...
truthfully tho', there's really no need for more mods....cos what we have here is a very nice, respectful, calm and peaceful forum....plus an occasional spammer or two.....:)

See, if tagging were possible you could have joined in much earlier.

It is an urgent requirement in the suggestions section. I dont think, my "Genetics sub forum needs help " has any reply :(

but that's in the joke subforum and the same goes for any chitchatting/philosophising threads...actually, most subforums in the protocol online community can be very tolerant of crazy, chaotic, irrelevant, irreverent posts...however, this here is the suggestion subforum- and thus,is strictly monitored by the great bioforum himself and the mods so we have to toe the line a bit....but this doesn't mean that you can't start a new thread suggesting me to be a moderator....:lol:..

still haven't read all posts but of course I'm in favour of Mlle C to be a moderator...depends on the section of course... :lol:

and the tagging I find quite useless, with similar reasons as the others mentioned before: new members don't know who is experienced in the field, the other members would ask directly, if it's really necessary, i.e. if they expected a reply by an expert of this field or a special member and it's not coming. And for some members who know really a lot in many fields, it will become a nuisance because they'll get tons of notifications finally...
Mostly the people who would like to help and can help, easily find the threads where they're needed, except they're busy with other stuff or on holidays and not online anyway. Here of course the old search function that found unanswered threads, was really helpful. But this function is gone and unfortunately not possible to implement anymore.
One must presume that long and short arguments contribute to the same end. - Epicurus
...except casandra's that belong to the funniest, most interesting and imaginative (or over-imaginative?) ones, I suppose.
