in reply to Categorizing while approving

As someone just mentioned, theres already a method of doing this, the keyword nodelet. I actually started to categorize nodes using it, but its a lot for one person to do. Also it has a problem or two: The nodelet allows you to type in any keywords you like, and since different people will have different keyword ideas for the same posts, either everyone has to tag every post, or we need to make a list to pick from. I would prefer the second, since the use is to be able to look at nodes you dont know about, with certain keywords.

Here's my suggestion: Suggest a list of tags we can start out with, don't wait for someone else to do it.. Here are some of my ideas:

net, tcp/ip, sockets, gui, perl/tk, faq, ...
Ok I'll add to it later when I remember others. The keywords are single words, entering multiple words in the nodelet will make multiple keywords for that node.

I actually made a keyword search page, I should port it over from the test server. (I keep meaning to refactor, since it shares a lot of code with the user search page .. )

So, stop suggsting, and start doing :)

    Apropos "tags", Jeffery Zeldman (he of the hideously colored yet most handy Orange CSS book fame) just had an interesting blog post about the use(ful|less)ness of the approach.
