OMTL Overuse/Misuse

I got OMTL'd 8 times in the past 24 hours. This is a litt,e upsetting for me because some of them would be more appropriate for the POMTL or a custom friends group :confused:

It seems that the POMTL and friend groups are a great idea, but we need a better way to implement them


#22

@JonnyGamer check out my general topic about Mass Tag Lists.


#23

Yeah! I've seen that! It's pretty great!


#24

Hmmm. I've seen that the OMTL is being misused in a different way. People are using it to tag everyone on flame wars because they are angry or upset. (I think you might've seen this happen)

I was wondering if there was any way that we could prevent this from happening. Maybe restricting the OMTL for once per topic would work and/or restricting it to be used once per day per person


#25

I don't think I want to be on the OMTL anymore. Now that we have custom groups, I don't think we need the OMTL anymore. It is too oftenly misused and just having friend groups make more sense


#26

What about relevant topics using the omtl

Some people don't have friend groups though, and what if there's an actual important thing?


#27

What I can think of is major forum update/ideas would be used by the OMTL.

Competitions could be used for people who want to be in comps @CompMTL

Collabs tag lists could be used for people who are willing to join a collab @CollabMTL

Idk. Just some ideas. But there are more things made that use OMTL that shouldn't, than withbthings that are appropriate for OMTL


#28

I like those ideas......

I think someone said this before, if someone tagged the omtl, then maybe a full list of the guidelines would pop up....

Then, of course, you could always shout at everybody who tags for things inappropriate for the omtl

But eh that's a bit harsh


#29

Yeah, I thought of that idea. It seems like it may work as a good reminder. (Yeah, let's not shout at everyone)


#30

Okay....

Can THT do that? Edit in the list of guidelines whenever someone mentions omtl?

Or at least say it until it just gets annoying


#31

I'm not sure if THT can edit the blue bar thing pop up. I was asking them but they haven't replied yet.

Yeah, I'm just saying:

Hey, don't use the OMTL for this, please. Thanks :+1:


#32

Oh okay

How many times have you said that?


#33

Once :joy:
I think I'm just gonna do that one from now on, though

It's really tough because people who've just joined have no idea how it works


#35

Hi JonnyGamer :smile: yeah it would be great if we could edit that blue pop up to a custom message. I don't think there's a way to do that though :disappointed:


#36

Aw, that's too bad. Hmm, maybe this topic should be pinned (or pin a different more official topic) so that everyone is able to see it on their latest section?


#37

:blush: That's interesting, I see you feel we should make it prominent for everyone on the forum.

And yeah I can understand you might not feel like being on it anymore :relaxed:


#38

I have an idea

I will spam like anyone who misuses the omtl on the forum and on the app
And I will literally crash their notifications with someone else

I don't think anyone actually likes getting 500 notifications when they get onto the forum


#39

I do! XD


#40

No, like so many till your browser crashes


#41

What are the rules for the POMTL??
