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.

Yes, that would work for tagging things with the "beware" or "discussion" or "positive feedback" tags, but I'd still have to go through and create a tag for each person/website/company. Since I'm already doing that, it takes only a tiny bit of additional work to add the beware/positive tags.

That makes total sense; I just wanted anyone else who ran across this thread to realize that your earlier stated reason for disabling community-wide tagging -- "If I allow community-wide tagging, [people who are members of this community] would be able to remove the tags on the posts warning about them" -- wasn't correct, in case others have similar concerns. =)

You're absolutely correct. :) And you're right in pointing out that those settings would work for other communities.

I was mainly thinking about the fact that in order to enable all members to tag posts with the person/website/company's name, I'd have to allow tag creation/deletion in addition to allowing tagging with already-made tags.
