So if I come up with other tags there'll be a thread?
Tag say like, Steadfast, Analytical or Meticulous.
Included below are definitions for the words.
Particularly Steadfast and Trustworthy.
Often I found out most people believe the two have the same meaning.
Resolutely or dutifully firm and unwavering.
Able to be relied on as honest or truthful.
Showing great attention to detail; very careful and precise.
Relating to or using analysis or logical reasoning.
Steadfast ... In what situation would you use this that you could not utilize the surplus of available tags
Trustworthy ... Do you ever actually rate other players? This is currently one of the options
Meticulous and analytical ... these are virtually synonyms, surely we don't need both. Aside from that, I return to what does this really add to the ratings?
Have you ever looked through people's ratings? Hardly anyone uses the tags at all. I actually wouldn't mind decreasing the available options:
Talkative ... I'm pretty sure that I've received this tag from opponents that meant it as a compliment and others that meant it as an insult
Irrational and reckless ... virtual synonyms
Suicider ... often overlaps with the above
Vindictive ... ditto
Sore loser ... ditto
These tags seem to expect an appreciation of nuance that I don't think reflects how people actually use these tags. One advantage of some of your proposals at least allow some better ways to give compliments to supplement the many ways we offer to criticize people's play.
