How can I create new tags?


I’m thinking of also providing support for some software on Neurostars.

What about creating per-software categories? This would improve the focus of discussions. Hopefully this software allows admins to move threads after creation?

Could you link to an example post (this is an only way we can currently create new tags)

Thanks for the help.

Done. Welcome onboard!

Hey guys,

TL;DR: could we please get a new developing-connectome tag to support user feedback for the developing Human Connectome Project (dHCP)

With the new upcoming release of the developing connectome dataset, we were thinking of hosting Q&A user support on NeuroStars.

Don’t worry we’d handle most of the replies of course, although it would be great to see an active community arising with the dataset :slight_smile:

Do you think it would be fine to create an initial developing-connectome tag? I’m not a big fan of the dhcp acronym since it’s hard to look up later on for obvious networking precedence… but open to other suggestions.

I guess a single tag encompassing all the aspects of the project (access to the dataset, processing pipelines, general feedback, …) would be sufficient initially as we do not expect a massive amount of traffic. Also it can surely be combined with existing tags on neurostars and enrich the set of solutions.

If that works for you, we could start advertising neurostars as the de facto solution to get support with our dataset, since we already have to deal with a few emails here and there with regards to our initial beta data release.


I’ve tried to create a new tag, but there seems to be a character length limit that developing-connectome exceeds by just one character…

Why not just to keep it the short “dHCP” – due to domain specifics of the website unlikely we would ever need a DHCP tag (as for “Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol”)?

Yeah of course neurostars is domain specific, but i was more thinking about web indexing :slight_smile:

What about developingHCP? That’d be consistent with our twitter handle.

Not sure if this matters, but tags need to be all lower case.

ok shall we make it developing-hcp then?

Seems it got created with one character too little indeed:
Is it possible to change it to developing-hcp?

I’ve added developing-hcp but I don’t know how to delete tags. @satra?

Thanks! Woot woot! (needing 20 characters to post)

Hey guys, we just made our dashQC repo public and told people to come here with questions. Any chance that could become a tag? just dashQC
