Increasingly the tags have become negative and inappropriate and now I'm having to consider my approach to using them at all; and if we continue, how to manage them effectively (since my moderators cannot see which members added the tags!!).
I just wondered how you guys are managing tagging:
Do you allow everyone to tag or do you restrict it to the thread starter / mods / trusted members?
Do you allow free-form tags or limit them to a predefined list that you specify?
Do you allow tags in all parts of your forums or do you limit their use in certain areas?
Do you remove the tagging feature from people who tag irresponsibly/inappropriately or have you removed it completely (on the basis it takes too much management to keep the tags appropriate/useful)?
