  1. Introduction
    Hey! I've been seeing a lot of mixupes where a Bedrock player comes across a Java thread and is confused. I think there should be something to fix this mixup.
    What It Should Look Like
    Thread titles might look like this:
    Java | Thread Title
    Bedrock | Thread Title
    Both Platforms | Thread Title
    Website | Thread Title
    Other Specifications
    The Prefix should have a colored background, purple might look nice.
    It shouldn't take up alot of room, maybe make it smaller than the thread title.

    Thanks for reading! Let me know what you think! Always remember Guardians are watching everyone now:gwen:!

    Go eat a potato.:potato:

  2. I agree, I think this would help a lot. Sometimes I get confused on thrrads because they don't specify which edition they use.

  3. I mean people can use the thing literally called "tags" and add "java" or "bedrock" on their own.

    We did also have an idea to have a bedrock/java tag players can choose like the "survey" tag in the off-topic section, but we just never saw a real need for it since each thread typically has it's own section and people sometimes do make it clear what platform they're talking about. Any other tags/platforms [website, twitter, etc.] aren't a thing we would really look at adding.

    Can you tell us where these tags would be useful? Like specific sections? Any ideas section is off limits for obvious reasons and off-topic/games section would likely not be added there either.

  4. Tags can prove useful in these situations, but not every thread specifies so. The topic of the thread may give hints if one feature is not available on both, but most are mutual. Gameplay and how the attributes work may differ across platforms, in which case, tags are necessary.

    Generally speaking, this will help. Players should be prompted to check which platform(s) their thread focuses on to avoid confusion. This saves ample time by clearly outlining the background of the thread to eliminate any misunderstandings that must be addressed later so the discussion does not get sidetracked. The "java" and "bedrock" tags will become obsolete, as their use is already covered by this new feature. The platforms involved from the thread will also be more visible than the tags that people occasionally miss.

  5. Some forums this could be on are server discussion, maybe forum discussion, help, events, recruitment, and a couple more forums.

  6. Server discussion/forums discussion/help and maybe recruitment seem to be the only liable places for the tag. Events won't be adding these tags as all official events take place on Java and we have a few other tags we use for our events. We'll talk about it and see where it goes.

  7. These are the forums that might use this:
    Help | Server Discussion | Forum Discussion | *Mineplex Guides | Off Topic | *YouTube Video Showcase | *Build Showcase | Recruitment

    Any forums marked with * don't fit the tags the most, but tags could still work.

  8. I think this idea would be a good one. It'll help a lot of players understand what platform a thread is referring to. Often times I see Java players comment on threads specifically for Bedrock (and they accidentally think it's referring to Java), so I think this would help clear a lot of confusion.

    To respond to the argument about how players can tag threads themselves, some players might not be aware of this feature and the tags do look a bit small and easy to gloss over. I think a thread prefix would help create a clear division between Java threads and Bedrock threads. +1

  9. After discussing for a little bit, we decided to not do this. A lot of these sections do indeed already have a specific section for bedrock stuff and the others can easily be inferred or told that they're bedrock and do not require a specific tag. We do believe this could also make some sections look messy with tags where they aren't necessarily needed. If a section ends up needing the separate tags we will go ahead and add them, but right now we will not be doing this.

    Message me with questions or concerns.
