Tagging suggestions

  1. given the choice between 'poem' and 'poems' or 'pic' and 'pix', the plural is usually the right choice because when you retrieve everything with that tag, you presumably want/get a plural number
  2. clicking on a tag should get you an author-customised tagportal (that places the important ones first, and includes text intros), not just a mechanical list of the items so tagged
  3. Can we figure out standard 'parts-of-tagspeech' that add something like a suffix to distinguish (eg) a post ABOUT mp3s from an actual mp3?
  4. genre-tags like 'reference' are useful and should be standardised/conventionalised if possible
  5. in general, uniform tagging styles should be debated and promoted
