    I tried to add a "PS4" tag to the Yakuza 0 thread I made in the Vidya gaems section and it yelled at me for

    1.) Having greater than 5 tags
    2.) "PS4" tag is too short

    Why do you guys hate me/tags?

    I adjusted it so the minimum requirement is 3 letters instead of 4.

    More than 5 tags is obsessive and will dilute some of the effectiveness of having tags.

    I hear 10 is a magic number for rounds in firearm magazines, surely our mods would allow us to have 10 tags maximum per thread without the whole site burning?

    I bet the Department of Homeland Shitposting recommends at least 30 tags per thread so I think 10 tags max is pretty reasonable.

    Tagging content more than necessary tend to create something called "duplicate content" issues with SEO. Even 5 tags is obsessive. The reason why the limit is in place is to prevent abuse and to not hurt our search rankings, which we have to spend time to build up considering how new the site is.
