With the announcement of the recent Site Award Winners , I wanted to highlight our Tagging feature, which is an easy way to win one of these cool badges.  It's easy because only one member other than Erik and I used this feature last month!

What is tagging?  Why is it important?

Tags allow information from around the community to be aggregated together.  They are labels that can be added to forum posts or Wiki articles to tie pieces of content together to make relevant information easier to find.  You can also subscribe to Tags, to make sure you stay updated with with your favorite topics.

Add Tags To Forum Posts And Wiki Articles

  1. Navigate to the forum thread or Wiki article that you would like to tag.  In the right hand column, you will see the "Add/Remove Tags" button in the "Tags" section.
  2. Click the "Add/Remove Tags" button.
  3. The Tag tool will appear.  The default setting allows you to use the Autocomplete tool to find your desired tags.  Simply start typing the topics below and a related tag will appear. PastedGraphic-5.png
  4. Select tags from the list by clicking on them.  They will appear in your Queue.
  5. When you are satisfied with your selection, click "Submit"  Your tags will not be added until you click to save.

Subscribe To Tags

If you are interested in a particular topic, you might consider subscribing to a tag related to the topic.  You will be alerted when something is tagged with that topic.  These subscriptions work in the same way as a subscription to a Product or a Wiki or a forum thread.

  1. Navigate to one of the following pages listed below
  2. At the top of the page, toward the right hand side, you will see the "Subscribe to this Tag" button.

Screen Shot 2011-11-11 at 2.21.50 pm.PNG How do you tag? Look for a thing like the one you see to the right and click "Add tags!"

I will point out that you can subscribe to a tag in a few ways: by email (instantly, daily, or weekly) or "site only". The "Site Only" option will show the subscribed threads, articles, etc. in the "activity stream" on the home page (http://thesandtrap.com/) and a few other places.Yo

You can always edit your subscriptions at this URL: thesandtrap.com/users/subscriptions/index/action/edit .

But, please consider what Mike said. Tagging is a great way to help the community. We're looking particularly for our Forum Leaders to tag things. It's quick and painless.

Also, I've created a new tag: http://thesandtrap.com/tag/subscription-worthy . If there's a great thread or article, add the "subscription-worthy" tag to it. I've subscribed to the tag and it'll be a great way to alert others - even f you don't post in the thread (though hopefully you do!) - that a thread or article has some great content!

Note: It may take up to an hour for the "subscription-worthy" tag to propagate throughout the system, but we can all begin using it shortly.

And once again, with the tag all by itself so it stands out, here it is:

    • I'm in a hotel in HK at 1:08am doing practice swings with the chair drill and a metronome just to get my tempo dialed in a bit. I should probably get some sleep for my early flight and factory visit right after lunch, but I can't fall asleep. . .
    • I don't think I've ever in my life been distracted by where someone was standing on the putting green.  I don't even have any distinct memories of knowing where anyone was standing while I was putting. I would probably object to someone waving their hand between my face and ball or peeing on my foot or something.
    • Welcome to TST! Good to hear you have the chance to increase your golf play. As for your clubs... Cobra F6 irons ended up in the Game Improvement category; given how far you hit the ball you should be OK with them. F6 reviews noted the irons have slightly different head designs up and down the line, to meet the demands of long irons vs. short irons. Cobra drivers and long clubs have a good reputation. I especially liked their FlyZ driver from a couple of years back, one of my top three favorites at the time. I play a FlyZ 4 hybrid, it's usually my go-to club for longer approaches and tight tee shots on evil short par 4s. Be aware that the Cobra long clubs have slightly heavier shafts than average; so if you're on the line between one flex and another, probably go with the gentler flex. But, test this out on the launch monitor and find out for sure. Note: Pick up a sand wedge if possible; doesn't have to be new, just decent grooves. As for winter lessons: if you can find an indoor lesson place with a good pro, you can get a jump on next year. Although hitting off of mats is not ideal, it's better than nothing. You can sense if the shot was a little fat on contact. If a golf shop is deserted on a winter's day, sometimes you can rent a half hour on the launch monitor and hit some balls. The shop can give you an idea of when hitting stall dead time will be. Where in Pennsylvania do you live? The head TST guy Erik operates out of Erie.
    • I'm not easily distracted and don't really care what people are doing while I am putting, but if I did I would prefer they be 30' back.  I don't understand people who get distracted by where people are standing, but I respect it and do my best not to let my lack of concern for these things effect them.   I was once standing around 20' or so behind someone who was lining up to a putt.  He took a few practice strokes and then stopped and angrily waved me to move.  (I didn't know him at all).  I don't see how I could have been in his line of site, but I said a simple "I'm sorry" and stayed far away from him any time it was his turn going forward.
    • Virtually nothing distracts me on the course. That gets me in trouble occasion, however. I forget that other people can, and do, get distracted, and I find myself doing somehting I shouldn't be doing while they're hitting (generally on the tee).  That being said, I could not care any less where they stand, as long as it isn't between me and the hole. ;)
