@bugbuster @sfss, thanks for your experimental posts and feedback.
I will have to revise my original idea. This system really only works if you stick to the same response tag, or only change it ￼ occasionally. That’s because the script will always insert your current response tag into all your posts. Meaning old posts would only have the new response tag.
There is a simple way to work around it, but it involves some manual editing. You would visit the old tag’s response thread and manually edit each of those posts, inserting the old tag. That way the old tag remains static in all the old posts. The new tag would be displayed in the text by the script. That sounds too impractical to me.
I think sticking to one response tag is the way to go. You can additionally use a specific hashtag for a thread, while your response tag makes it easy to view all responses to your posts without remembering, individual tags.
“Bla bla bla …
Responses welcome using #username.”
You can easily find all responses to your posts under #username, but also filter threads by specific tags when you want — and you don’t have to remember, or keep track of other tags because you will find them in your responses.
Your response tag has two main purposes. The most important one is to encourage responses when you seek them. That’s done by the reminder at the bottom of each post. It’s a call to action. The second is to make it easy for you to find all responses without getting muddled by lots of different tags. It works like a silent “mention” because you only know about it when you look for it. That’s how it differs from other hashtags.
Does this usage explanation make sense?
