Tagging Bible Bee Verses
I think it would be a great idea if all the Bible Bee verses were tagged in a consistent fashion. If everyone follows last year's most popular approach to tagging the Bible Bee verses that would mean we would use:
Bible Bee 2011 Level 1
Bible Bee 2011 Level 2
Bible Bee 2011 Level 3
Bible Bee, tagging, 2011

Sounds good! Will do!
I had the same idea!
Adding mine now!
Sure, I'll try to tag every 2011 BB verse that slides in!;)
Should I also tag '10 and '09 BB verses?
Zachary - It is completely up to you. I don't know how many people will be interested in finding the verses from the last two years.
I have a problem. When I look at the tag cloud and click on Bible Bee 2011 level 2, and when I click "add to your list" for Proverbs 15:2, it gives me the verse in KJV. I memorize in ESV, and l have ESV in my profile.
Thanks; will do. Does level one mean Primary verses? Just wondering ;).
@ Joshua Harrell:
I, for one, would appreciate it if, when someone tagged a verse in any version, it would become tagged in all versions. For example: If someone tagged a KJV verse, and someone else who used NIV added it to their verses, it would be added in the NIV and not the KJV. The only problem would be that not every verse in necessarily entered into Memverse's database in every version.
If that doesn't happen, it would be helpful if we made tags for, say, Bible Bee 2011 Level 1 NIV, Bible Bee 2011 Level 1 ESV, etc.
Talia - Yes, that is a feature that is planned. Right now the tags are tied to a specific entry in the "verses" table of the database, so to do this we almost have to have a "reference" table and tie the tags to that, and then have it pull up the verses in one's selected version... Not sure exactly how it would work...
Talia, let me check on the answer to your question. For some reason I thought that we were propagating tags across all the translations.
I apologize if I said the wrong thing there. Maybe tags are across translations.
Hannah - Yes, Level One is Primary. So if you, as a Junior, had a verse that was a Primary one, you would tag it as such. :)
How many BB verses have you guys added to your accounts so far? I have 119 at this moment, and am thinking of adding more since I've gone through them all today. Just wondering.
Just wanted to let you know that some verses had BB 2011 tags that are the wrong level. ie a Primary verse is labeled as a junior verse.
So just be careful when adding labels.
So far I have just added the BB verses for week one and a few I know already from week two.
Ive added 119, which is week 1, and some of week 2. I'm also going through them on my own and actually memorizing them. What are you guys doing other than Memverse?
I am tagging my Timothy Track Bible Verses with the tag "National Bible Bee 2011 (Junior Timothy)"
I am in the Junior division and doing the Timothy Track so if you are doing the same you are welome to use my verses :D
Good idea, Rachel! My mom was wondering what to do about this.
Zachary and Rachel - I guess you could even do your Timothy verses with one of two tags:
Bible Bee 2011 Level 1 Timothy
Bible Bee 2011 Level 2 Timothy
Then even Primary contestants could benefit. But it's not a big deal.
Thanks everyone for all your work tagging. :)
How can I tag my verses? The only reason I'm on here is because of Bible Bee and to help. BTW I do not like my profile picture. How can I change that too?
BibleBeeJunior11 - That's great you're doing the Bible Bee! There is a post on tagging verses here: http://www.memverse.com/blog/main/Tag_Your_Memory_Verses. I couldn't remember where it was on the blog, so I just clicked on the "Blog Search" option under the "Blog" tab.

What does it mean to tag verses?
I don't know how to tag verses. When I go to my verses and at the top it says 'Tags' there is nothing for the verses under that title. How do I tag them so that there is something under that title?
Jamie - That's OK. There is a blog post related to that here: www.memverse.com/blog/main/Tag_Your_Memory_Verses. If you have any more questions regarding this, please let us know. Thanks.
Thanks Alex- I think I know what to do now.
One more thing though, this probably sounds stupid but are Bible bee primary verses level one, junior level 2, and senior level 3?
Oops - I just realized you went over that above. Sorry ;)
what are level one and level 2 ??
Rachel - Level 1 is Primary, Level 2 is Junior, and Level 3 is Senior
oh okay thanks!!
What is the purpose of tagging verses?
@ Carrie - we tag verses to help users find verses (at least that is what I do it for), like we are doing for the Bible Bee 2011 verses. For example, if someone was looking for a verse on "Kindness", they would go to the tag cloud tab, click on "Kindness" and scroll through the verses listed. I have used this several times, like when adding 2009 Bible Bee verses. Is this helpful?
All 2011 BB verses are in the system in the NIV translation and I have tagged all the 2011 BB verses for all three levels (since I am a senior) so all verses for BB should be tagged now!
For those who make it to nationals what do you think about using the tags:
Bible Bee 2011 Nationals Level 1
Bible Bee 2011 Nationals Level 2
Bible Bee 2011 Nationals Level 3
Sounds like that would work Marie.
Thanks, Andy. Will do.
