My interests include:

  • Open Source Software, the giving pattern for communities

  • My local church, worldwide charities
  • Sci-fi short stories, poems
  • Misc tech hobby projects

@David Brown From what I've seen a tag is a new kind of message that links a post to a string(tag). It isn't widely used as you say, so its purpose is still a bit nebulous to me.

Here's the implementation of tags: scuttle-tag
There's also been some discussion about tags replacing channels and maybe growing into a new groups feature.

Don't stress it too much @Nate B In my experience as long as you're a good human being and talk about your mistakes people in scuttlebutt are willing to accept them and move on. The theory is that the trust built up over time encourages people to act like people here, not anonymous jerks. I've yet to see anyone mass banned when they made a mistake and tried to make it good afterwards.

On the plus side the scuttlebutt community has no central banning facility that gets you 'kicked out of the network'. People can ban you but each person has to make that decision. So even if you manage to upset a high percentage of people you just have a smaller network of friends to talk to.

Hopefully that's encouraging. As I said don't stress it too much; just be a good person
