spikedluv: hand on chest by tazi



Short, concise description of the idea
Allow users to continue to use the # number sign outside of the #hashtag

Full description of the idea
Rather than making the # number sign be a separator, merely continue using the comma as the separator will allow user to create hashtags if they want to, rather than hashtags being created accidentally.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Users would still be able to use the # number sign for things other than creating a hashtag

  • Users would not have their tagging system screwed up if they’ve been using the # number sign in their tags

  • Users would not have to got back and edit all the tags they’ve used a # number sign in if they want to keep a systemic tagging system

  • Users would not inadvertently create hashtags when they had no intention of doing so
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • None that I can think of
