You may have noticed that we recently enabled tags here on in_thread.
This is one thing we are exploring as part of our interest in improving the forum. (This came about in recent discussions around making in_thread more approachable for beginners and first-timers to Sonic Pi. See here):
Making it easy to filter topics based on more specific themes than the overall categories may be quite useful. For example: we could indicate the technical complexity of a topic, mark a question or issue as being related to a particular Operating System, classify a musical creation as being in a particular musical style, group personal introduction posts into similar geographical regions… the list goes on.
For the moment, it appears that management of tags is limited to in_thread admins and moderators, but in the interest of trying to minimise any inconvenience this may cause, I’m opening up this discussion to ask for feedback and suggestions about useful tags that we can create as a first trial run.
