Hello community!

I’ve been working for a while on a suggestion regarding the flair system. Flair is sort of a 'tag' used by Reddit added to posts or usernames for the purpose of filtering. In AWA's case, I would like to filter posts based on different factors. First and foremost, filter news posts based on game genre and type of post, e.g.:
         i. game genre: FPS, RPG, Survival, Team-Based Shooter (TBS), Racing etc.
        ii. type of post: review, everything you need to know (EYNTK), hardware, software etc.

I came up with three flair versions. You can view them below.

By clicking flairs you will filter instantly all the content on that particular board. For example, by clicking the FPS flair all the FPS-related news content is filtered and displayed.

I consider that this would be a wise move and that it will definitely contribute to organizing even better the AWA forum.

Thoughts?

I like it a lot. We actually had something similar in the works for another community of sites, but was scrapped all together.  This is definitely something we can pitch.

Additionally, you could also add some sort of icon on a thread to show where you personally posted, like a star.

Something like this:

Displaying a star or a similar icon to show you were you posted on threads, since sometimes i don't remember all the threads where i made my comments, and its a good reminder to show me where i did post as i browse the section. Not to mention its more convenient.

Tagging is always useful, but your mocked up color scheme is chaotic and would heavily detract from forum flow.
Tags should as a rule be more nuanced in shading, and less bright and in-your-face.

Wish you best of luck. Many thanks in advance for considering and putting effort to this.

Also can't help but think that there is only a small gap for a tag and a star if that happens too. What would happen if there were multiple tag topics like a FPS review? How would that look?
