So first a question. Why did you join the OMTL? To get tagged to interesting things right?
We tag omtl so people see the topic. Of course there are guidelines, else it could get overused. So why do we say “Sorry if you didn’t want to be tagged” after tagging the OMTL? It makes no sense. The reason you joined the OMTL was probably (Not guaranteed this was the reason) to be notified of new contests and cool topics. In other words, you wanted to be tagged. So why get angry when you get tagged?
There are a few sensible reasons for this:
- It could be a misuse, breaking the OMTL guidelines
- It could be unimportant
- It could be non-related to code
- POMTL could’ve been used in the scenario
But if you don’t want to get tagged just leave the group, don’t get angry at people tagging it for something code related and interesting.
As I said before, I’m not sure this is right, it’s just weird how people do it. The OMTL was originally the Friendly Mass Tag List if I’m correct, and the Friendly Mass Tag List was a list of people who wanted to be tagged for stuff like competitions. The OMTL has the same point.
Do you agree?
- On some things
I did SBYP and did not find anything relating closely to this.
