Is the tag feature still available? I assume it is, since I am still able to view my list of old tags.

There used to be an Edit Tags link at the top of a geeklist, but I don't see anything like that now.

Adding tags is quietly gone.

Yeah, I miss geeklist tags too... Thommy8 had done an excellent job of keeping geeklists tagged as well.

Hopefully they'll be back some day.. be a shame to lose that way of categorising lists.

Mark,

There was some discussion of this back on January 4th when I requested that the feature be reinstated (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/751162).

The issue has also been raised by "The Maverick" (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/93748), as well as "quozl" (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/93474).

Thank you very much Andy

If tags are gone, and aren't replaced with some other personalized form of indexing, I probably won't be writing GeekLists any longer. There's such a glut of lists now that it seems futile to put a lot of work (often several days for my lists) into a list that might be "off the radar" for most users in less than 24 hours.

I know the whole GeekList system is scheduled for an overhaul, so I'll just have to wait and see what happens.

Aldie, is there any reason why we can't have tags back?

There is a 'backdoor' way for adding tags to lists. I have just tried it and it works.
I'm unsure if Aldie would appreciate it to be known publicly as it is hidden but not disabled. To be safe, I'll keep it to myself for now. (But it isn't too hard to figure out for yourself.)

Your own old tags can still be accessed through...
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geektags.php
The link is available in the menu...
My Geek | My Geek | GeekLists | Tags

Because a tag function is added in the new menu, I expect them to return in full in some form.

I did see how to view the old tags I've created, but I have not figured out how to add new tags...
