Title: Official Gaming Steve tag.
Post by: Blulightning on June 15, 2008, 12:32:36 pm
Okay, I see some debate as to what exactly should be used as a tag to identify creatures made by Gaming Steve members.

Option 1: Long but with accurate results. Capitalization doesn't seem to affect results.
Option 2: May or may not work correctly since it is two words... did anyone try this one out?
Option 3: Two different words to search by, but will also result in extra finds of anyone tagging creatures with just "Gaming" or just "Steve."
Option 4: May result in a few extra finds...
GS Options: Short and simple but may be confused with GameSpot.

For option 7, please post!

The poll will run for 5 days, but you may change your vote in case you change your mind.

WINNER: My poll never even made it to day 2, yet there is already a very clear winner.

When using the creature creator, tag all your creatures with "gamingsteve" if you want people to be able to search for them!

[gs] could also be gamespot  :). i've been using gamingsteve in all my creatures.

gaming steve has a space between it, but as a searchtag , some uses requre that you have  spece between search terms and who knows steve, and what is gaming ? gamingsteve tells more :)

The capitalization is unnecessary and doesn't affect the search... gamingsteve.

Ah yeah, I didn't even think about that.... I just have a programmer's habit of capitalizing with conjoined words....

Good to know it won't affect the searches.

I *have* noticed, however, that there are some creatures on the search list that appear twords the end of a search for 'gamingsteve' that do not have the gamingsteve tag in them nor do they have anything to do with 'gaming' or steve


I'm also curious to know what the priority order is. Right now, searching gamingsteve yields Steve's creatures first (as it should) but beyond that is a mix of everyone else, all with the gamingsteve tag.

(I only ask because my creature is on page 10  :'( )

To make a tag that could be identified with the members here and to not be confused with any other, How about GAST? GAming STeve. It's not all that long, and from what I can tell it isn't really a word, so I doubt it will be widly spread or used within the sporepedia or spore game.

I do know Gast could mean ghost or spectre, but I doubt those words will be used much to tag creatures.

I'm only going to use gamingsteve.

No capitals, no spaces... Pure and simple.  Won't use anything else.
