@nimh,
Hey, it may come back. But you do realize if I really have to leave it at 5, the ones you already did more of are going to be hard to deal with (and we'd probably just delete a few). Doing that would be tricky, and could upset people so it will be easier to bring them back to 10 than it would to do this later.

So till we get the other database architecture problems solved I'm going to keep it simple, and I'm not quite sure where the sweet spot is just yet. There's a tradeoff between semantics and scale. If we allow it to go more broad, more scale is needed to keep abuse rare and I got to figure out a good balance between the two.

Hum.

Maybe just six, then?

Okay, okay, okay... *slouches off*

Are people seriously doing a purposeful attack to undermine the tagging, btw? Thats insane. When I saw the penises one, I thought it was just a haphazard flippancy, not concerted sabotage or something... that's just inane.

@nimh,
Some of it might not be intentional, but other stuff clearly is. Either way it's to be expected and needs an algorithmic fix.

Another cluster, further additions very welcome -- actually, two overlapping ones:

http://able2know.org/tag/eu/ (13 items)
http://able2know.org/tag/european_union/ (8 items)

The tag clouds on home, my tags and related tags just got a lot bigger thanks to having enough good data to allow us to expand the clouds.

@nimh,
OK, I got distracted sometimes but spent about 2-3 hours tagging. Followed the International News and Europe tags to find threads that were focused on elections/politics/human rights/minorities, but spread out pretty wildly. Also followed Dag's threads, but I'd covered a lot already.

Human rights tag now has 17 items. I sent an odd one or two to architecture + media as well.

@Robert Gentel,
Yay!

(And the elections tag made it in Smile )

@nimh,
Wow! Very nice stuff, I've been tagging for days and really wanted to tackle the Europe topic organization but you're better for that anyway.

One cool thing you guys might not realize yet is that I'll be doing some neat SEO stuff with all of this, and we'll start to draw more diverse people with all the extra meta data.

@Robert Gentel,
I just spent some time retagging some of my previous tags and some new ones, though not yet on my own threads, based on improved comprehension (I hope). More domani when I'm more alert. Crits welcome.

Glad about the SEO folk.

Will there ever be a way to search tags? I'd be nice to see where tags cross. "Gus AND Waggery" or somesuch.

@old europe,
Oh it would, good idea!

Dag's needs to be in there... the "Streetsmart travelers" one... I'll see if I can find it.

edit: got it

Cool! Now I can go and read all those threads that I missed when people posted them...

I don't get this one:

http://able2know.org/tag/primer/

"primer" shows as a popular tag on the top-level screen, but has no posts associated?

@DrewDad,
That actually sounds like two separate projects for us. Searching tags is going to show up quick, merging tag views isn't. But both have been in plans and consideration for a while.

@DrewDad,
There's a bug where the aggregates are not being updated right when the tags are removed.

@sozobe,
Damn, I can't remember the titles of my old trip diaries to Italy and New York, but I'll work on it - I'll probably find the NY one first.
Meantime, I'm going to go through the travelogue link (thanks!) and add 'travel diaries' plus perhaps other words to the appropriate threads.

@ossobuco,
Pooh, I'm halfway through and remembered (saw a post of JoeNation's) the word sojourn..
