AudioEdit and VideoEdit appear to be ready for retirement. Rarely see them used anymore.

As for replacements.
Perhaps a G'AAAH tag?
Maybe Fuct, Farked, or F*cked. Possibly with an Up following.

/welp, that's my penny in the pot

Karen should be added. Or, do I need to speak with the manager?

NEWS with BOOBIES

Retire the FAIL tag and replace it with a Renner tag for all things Jeremy Renner.
 
2020-09-29 8:51:19 PM  
Personally, I think 'Schadenfreude' would get a lot of use.
 
2020-09-29 8:52:47 PM  
Oh, and retire 'Fake'. I get a feeling it won't be in much use soon.
 
2020-09-29 9:03:55 PM  
I would get rid of the sappy tag, the fail tag, and the stupid tag. In their place I would put Sweet or Awesome, Fail could be replaced by Outstanding and the Stupid tag could be Horrible or Unbelievable.

No suggestions for retirement.

As for new tags:
Muh gunz and shiat's on fire yo because of what's coming up with the election.

After the election, a Dis MoFo for all the conservative and GOP folks trying to distance themselves from the S.S. Trumptanic if he loses.

2020 is depressing enough without adding 'Karen' 'BONED' or other neg tags.

Lets add [AWESOME] or [ L O L ]  or [KARMA]
Or interesting reads under [SCIENCE] or [DARWIN]
 
2020-09-29 10:00:49 PM  
Forget about which one needs retirement and bring back the 'Walken' tag
 
2020-09-29 10:22:12 PM  
A HAHA tag would be fun. Similar, of course, to schadenfreude.
 
2020-09-29 10:52:26 PM  
- STRANGE and WEIRD are redundant. Go with WEIRD.
- Not near enough use of WHEATON so maybe retire that one. Sorry Wil.
- AUDIO, AUDIOEDIT, VIDEOEDIT: have they ever been used?
- BOOBIES and WEENERS should go; they're just tease tags that don't deliver on modern Fark.
- Is there need for both NEWS and NEWSFLASH tags? NEWSFLASH is sufficient.

Maybe a PAYWALL tag as a warning that clicking may by futile?
Maybe a KARMA tag.
How is it possible Fark doesn't have a BOOZE or ALCOHOL or BEER tag?
 
2020-09-29 11:15:11 PM  
Science would be a good one to add.  Geek is annoying. (I just think of people who read comic books and play video games).  You can keep geek, just add science.
 
2020-09-29 11:16:12 PM  
AudioEdit (Never seen that used.)

VideoEdit (Same reason).

Just those two for now.

Where has abb3w been lately? S/he offered us a whole slew of Fark tags. My favorite: Fark user image , for when "unlikely" just won't do.
 
2020-09-30 12:37:18 AM  
I'm up for a GFY or DIAF tag for when things like 'Asinine' just aren't enough, but it's been that kinda night.
 
2020-09-30 1:09:51 AM  
Bring back the Walken tag.

ArkAngel: Forget about which one needs retirement and bring back the 'Walken' tag


Beat me to it.
 
2020-09-30 1:10:52 AM  
Remove the Fake tag, because we still don't know what the hell it's for. It's long past time for a Texas tag.
 
2020-09-30 1:11:40 AM  
Or maybe a Derp tag.
 
2020-09-30 1:12:21 AM  
Florida.

Sorry, but this old joke is now long past Fark...heck it is now nightly comic  news.for their Florida stuff. Do we need to write headlines for Conan?

In many ways it has been replace by 'merica. Just sayin'
 
2020-09-30 1:17:40 AM  
Thought about it, and whipped up a sillier/dumber version of what used to be the advice tag. Good for Dear ___ columns and any non-serious things Farkers want to ask.

Now in "Should I ask my mother-in-law to stop poisoning me?" Slate maroon:

And "I'm stuck to my chair, I'm so very scared" woodgrain:

This. Everybody should ask for this EVERY F**KIN' TIME they waste their time clicking on a link that goes to a paywall.

The GIGGITY tag is rarely used, and the only one we have that's a catchphrase on a TV show many of us stopped watching several years ago. Not all readers would've gotten the reference from the start, and it's getting old.
 
2020-09-30 5:28:28 AM  
Retire the 'Florida' tag and replace it with a 'New Hampshire' tag.
 
2020-09-30 5:59:39 AM  
How about a 'Hyperbole' tag? Or maybe 'DNRTFA'
 
2020-09-30 6:57:36 AM  
Definitely a DOOMER tag. Then an OUTRAGE!! tag. and finally a WESTCOASTWOKEBRIGADE tag.
 
2020-09-30 7:34:10 AM  
Darwin
Scam
And since it's 2020 might as well have a Depraved tag
 
2020-09-30 7:51:27 AM  
Asinine + Dumbass + Facepalm = Dumb. Or possibly Dum.
 
2020-09-30 7:58:41 AM  
FUBAR...

BOHICA

For the un-veteran...

edmo: STRANGE and WEIRD are redundant. Go with WEIRD.


WEIRD gets double duty as the official tag of Weird Al threads, so it needs to stay.

FLORIDA should remain the only state with a tag, even if the joke is a little old by now.

We could use a NERD tag for articles that would otherwise be hard to categorize.  A lot of actual science news might fall under the category of news, but stuff like articles on the latest comic book movie could fall under the NERD banner.

gopher321: Oh, and retire 'Fake'. I get a feeling it won't be in much use soon.


Just a guess but will probably be a spike and it will level off then disappear.

I know Wheaton has some special meaning from the Early days, but it really doesn't get any legitimate use.

/ducks
 
2020-09-30 11:15:10 AM  
How 'bout a "New-Normal" tag?
 
2020-09-30 12:59:46 PM  

The Reverend Sam Hill: Where has abb3w been lately? S/he offered us a whole slew of Fark tags. My favorite: [Bullshiat] , for when "unlikely" just won't do.


For the record, I've only made one tag design of my own:

Fark user imageView Full Size


However, 2008-2015 I also collected the tags that other people created and posted. (A very few, not for Fark.) I've given up collecting, and the server I used for storing them will be going forever offline later this year. I'll note that Texas is the only US State that has had more than three variants made. I'm not sure it's of the same caliber as Florida; however, it would seem that if Texas hasn't earned a Fark tag yet, Florida should remain the only state-specific tag.

For the curious, the various unofficial tags created by others... (part one)

Also, someone made this variant on my Texass tag.

I don't think it would work as well at 11x54 however.

Keep the FAKE tag as deep fakes are going to be commonplace. Get rid of news since newsflash is there. I like the idea of a schadenfreude tag, too. Maybe a Confession tag for TF, similar to Discussion but kinda like 'True off my chest' type of tag.

Looks like the Wayback Machine has got your back, but I'll be archiving these just in case.
