- Yes enabling tagging
- No don’t enable tagging
Since this is a community forum - we want to bring our members in on the decision making about the running of the forum, and what features it has - of course the view of forumers is only going to be one factor we take into consideration - but its an important one! To help facilitate this we will sometimes ask for community opinions on things.
So one feature that Discourse has is that users can set up tags and tag posts - this serves as an alternative to organisation via categories (since a post can only be in one category but it can have multiple tags). By default this is off - but we could switch it on. Only Trust level 3 users would be able to create new tags (this can be adjusted - but we would prefer to keep it high) but once tags are in the system anyone can apply them to any thread.
Do you think this would be a further useful way of navigating the forums? Or just a source of clutter?
