Anonymous asked: Hi there. Today I found out about your Pretty Tag Cloud Maker and I have to say it looks fantastic. Cheers for that and thanks. Just a small problem, once I have pasted the code on the HTML area of the tumblr page, every change I make relating to the tags, like change the name of a tag or add a new one. doesn't seem to synch with the script. I tried to paste the code again but it doesn't work. Am I doing something wrong? (by the way, I ask anonymously because my tumblr is NSFW). Thanks again.
Dear Anon, please read in the “Help” section, FAQ questions 4 and 5.
Anonymous asked: it doesn't seem that you can exclude a tag that has a hyphen in it, is there a way to fix this?
To whoever Anon asked, this should be fixed now.
kuchingite asked: hi there! is it possible to make the tag cloud widget show specific tags that we want instead of just omitting tags that we don't want?
No, that defeats the purpose!
If you just want to list certain tags on your tumblr, you should just do it manually by adding the links yourself to your page :)
Just add a bunch of links like:
<a href="/tagged/sometag">sometag</a>, <a href="/tagged/anothertag">anothertag</a>, ...
And so forth.
I’m slightly bored — I need a new coding project to work on.
Anyone out there have ideas / suggestions / want help on a project?
I’ve been thinking about social networks and social media sites.
It occurs to me that today, you get way more social SPAM from your “friends” / blogs / twitters / etc you follow, than you ever get Spam in your email Inbox.
And what can we do about this phenomena?
Edit: ivogeorgiev tells me it’s not “Spam” but “unwanted content”.
I mean what’s the difference? Email Spam is “unwanted content” as well, and they’ve figured out pretty well how to separate the wheat from the chaff on that front.
Surely there is a way to apply the same kind of Spam filtering logic to the “unwanted content” on social sites like Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter etc. For example Facebook offers some kinds of “filtering” abilities but honestly, putting things on lists, or Facebook’s tendency to “help” your Feed by boosting Posts with more “activity” (comments, likes, etc) — this does not a Social Spam Filter make.
