Maybe a no-go for tagging: Describing tags
Imagine an option to describe your tag :)
I find it somewhat absurd to “tag” tags. Another Idea would be to add a list of non-trivial tags in the wiki [developer.qt.nokia.com]
I don’t open new tread but use this.
I see the tag system is very disoriented. For me the real problem is that the user can simply add a new! I read some post where admin relocate some tags (ex: remove qtcreator to qt creator), but when a user add qtcreator the loop is restarted.
So i’m suggest a way like a stackoverflow system. The normal user can’t add new tag, but can only tagging with a list of possible tag, and so we NEED an ajax system for add tag.
In this case the user when write creatore can see qt creator and use that.
The only limit is when a post haven’t a specific tag because this tag is new, so the user have to ask a creation of tag.
This system need some modify to the system, but for me is the best way.
@stuk: Absolutely, we have a suggestion for supporting synonyms/aliases in the bug tracker, this will solve the many-tags-that-mean-the-same-thing issue.
