Moderator post: Tagging Entries

I finally have some time to start going back and tagging posts. I will work backwards from the most recent posts.

If anyone would like to see the tags I'm using, here they are:

The list will evolve as I work my way through the entries.

Each post will be tagged with the descriptors (e.g. 'beware', 'artist') and the name of the person/company being mentioned. There will also be appropriate tags for advice and discussion posts.

As I come across posts which have been mutually resolved, I will tag them 'resolved', with no warnings about any specific party.

If you have any questions about my tags on a specific post, comment here with a link to that post. If you ask in that particular post, I won't see your question.

Feel free to suggest tags (or better wording for the tags I'm using), but please do not feel offended if I don't take your suggestions.

Do NOT repost your old bewares. They are being archived.

Some of the warnings are about people who are members of this community. If I allow community-wide tagging, they would be able to remove the tags on the posts warning about them.

Perhaps this is some kind of crazy exception, but, when I've added tags to entries in a community in which I'm not a moderator, I've found that I'm unable to go back and remove those tags -- using either "Edit Entry" or "Edit Tags." I can erase the tag in the editing stage and hit "Save," but the tag is still there when the post is reloaded. It's a pain when you select the incorrect tag and then can't go back and delete it without contacting a mod; however, it certainly prevents the issue you're concerned about, and it allows everyone to add moderator-approved tags.

I'm not trying to get you to change your mind -- if this is what you're comfortable with, that's cool -- but I thought I'd share my own experiences with community-wide tagging and point out that you may not have to worry about people removing tags that warn against them.
