A couple hours ago I started re-tagging all my books while I was a work...got off work and it took 30 minutes to drive home and another 15 to get in, put things up and get online...and they are back...all 689 tags....

KISSES KISSES to TPTB that returned my tags...

You're welcome! But please read this post that explains why your tags aren't needed anymore:

When you're satisfied that this new feature meets your needs, you can delete those tags (all at once) from your new My Tags page. This will give you the satisfaction of removing them yourself before they get voted off again! :)

Len, if the  "On My:" line showed while I was browsing down a boxer's bookshelf, I would gladly agree that the -tbr, -wl, -bir tags that people are putting for their personal lists are not needed, but they do NOT. They only show when I look at the details of the books. I've presonally received over 1200 books from this site, most of them have been from BoB trades. Do you really think I had time to click the details for every book to see if I"ve already read or already own it? And I'm sure I'm not the most highly trading member you have.

Sherry...the "On My" line is new and it does show up when you look at someone's Bookshelf.  They are also looking to putting the "On My" line on the Wishlist...

Christy, but it doesn't show up when you are looking down the list of books in BOB, you have to view the details of the books to see those lines,. It already was there when looking at people's bookshelves, that's not new.

Well, perhaps Sherry you could see it when looking at someone's shelf but, I have Never Never been able to see the "On My" line when looking at anyone's shelf, that is why it was so important to me to have TAGS so I would know if I had read that book or not without going into the actual book description.  So for me...and my PBS browsing of other folks shelves it is 100% NEW!!

As far as looking at a  BOB BOOKSHELF I am not involved in BOB transactions so I was not aware that a BOB bookshelf was any different than anyone elses.

It wasn't there for me either... and they say in one of the threads here that they just implemented it, so I don't know how Sherry had it!

The tags were very handy when doing a BOB deal. It was great to get a bob offer and just look and see that they had books tagged to show if I had them on my TBR or my RL.  Hopefully they'll make it so that it'll show w/o having to look at the book details page.

They are also looking to putting the "On My" line on the Wishlist...

If this happens I will delete all my RL tags, but until then, this is the only way for me to see which books I have already marked as interesting.  I don't want to have to open the book details page to see this...
