A suggestion for tags

The idea with tags, as I understand it, is to lump topics into smaller, more specific buckets. One of the problems with this, however, is fragmentation... Where many similar, but distinctly different, tags are used to categorize content of a similar nature. We saw this in the early phase of the beta with the use of #Flood and #TheFlood (which I believe are still being used). Here is my suggestion.... When tagging a topic, the list of suggested tas should be ordered by popularity. That way, rather than try and guess what the right tag to use is, I can simply see what others are using. For example: When creating this topic, I wanted to use the tag #BungieNext (which I believe to be the correct one). However, I had to scroll half-way through a very long list of tags to find it. There is already a [url=http://www.bungie.net/en-US/view/community/forum/tags]page[/url] that lists the most popular tags. I'd just like to find some way to make that list availible to people as they create topics. What do you think?

    That would be cool! I'd like to see a feature that reads the post and based off of a Bayesian statistic algorithm determine what tags would be best for the post. This would tie in well with a tag revelance voting system.

  • I have this same problem when making threads. A list of the most popular tags for the particular forum you're posting in would be nice. Along with the upgrade you mentioned to the drop down menu.

  • Oh man, I agree. I've seen another site do something similar (it pops up similar tags as you type them in and then with a count of how many times it's been used), and it works really well. You don't get strange tags that don't quite make sense.

  • Seems logical.

      This seems like a good idea. Also, the ability to view multiple hashtags simultaneously (without having to manually type them into the url) would be great. For example, if you are viewing #TheFlood in the related tags area it could show #Flood and #offtopic with buttons to add them to the search.
