... and please can they stop.
Searching has never been great on LJ, but there’s a pretty good “tag” feature which allows you to tag your projects with appropriate keywords.
Is this project a tray?
Are cutting boards trays? A goodly number of them are tagged “tray”. Perhaps that’s arguable.
This isn’t a tray, or a jig.
Does this project, which is tagged with “bed”, and “clock” and “jig” and “chest” and “chair”, look like any of those things to you?
Only 3 of the 15 projects on page 1 actually are trays.
This project lists 18 species of wood used – yet not a single species of wood is listed in the text.
I’m not trying to single out those particular projects – they are but examples – the problem is rife.
Call me a kill-joy if you will, but just blindly tagging projects with every tag under the sun does nothing except seriously downgrade the usefulness of the tag feature.
The more carefully we tag our projects, the more useful the site will be to us.
