( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

My experience with PM leads me to believe that voting has a much better chance of resulting in a useful categorization system than privilege (the tag adders, tag deleters, and considerers) does.

My bet is that privilege won't result in a very useful tag system and, even if it starts to, the effect won't last.

I think you need to allow anyone (or nearly so, maybe about level 3) to add keywords and nearly anyone to vote for/against keywords. But tracking votes is O( nodes * users ) and is the biggest part of our database. Keyword votes could be O( nodes * users * words ). But not tracking keyword votes just affords voting abuse... Maybe an alternative of only tracking recent votes and limiting number of votes per day would not balloon out of control but would strongly discourage voting abuse...

But I don't think you've designed a keyword system that will work yet. And I don't think that will be an easy design. But I think such could be very useful.
