Is it working properly, is there a date where the search by tag for FOCs will be operational?

And in the meantime, can I fill in my hours at work by tagging my posts and the posts of other craftsters??

I'm starting to realise just how wonderfully bleedingly useful tagging is. Because running a search for "tutorial" brings up more requests for tutorials than actual tutes, and because sometimes I just want to skip merrily amongst a generic category (like "skirt") until I find something I want to make.

Good question about an ETA for tag searching.  Let me see if there is a guesstimate available yet.

I've been tagging like a madwoman this week...I get into strange obsessive work modes sometimes, doing anything but what I need to be doing.  Roll Eyes "elvis," "shrine" and "frida_kahlo" are definitely bigger in the tag-cloud than they were before!

And more on the tagging aspect of things.....

1) There's a guideline that says "Please don't use plurals in tagging" and of course.... there are plurals. Is there any way of reporting them for removal?

2) Any chance of somehow maybe one day implementing tag searching/sifting the way that delicious does it? (Goddamn I love delicious) There you can select "bag" as a tag, and you get all the pages tagged with 'bag'. Then you can select "crochet" and suddenly you're only looking at pages tagged with both 'bag' and 'crochet'. It's seriously a fantastic way of sorting tags.

1) You could either go to the topics with that tag and hit "report to moderator" or... I guess you could open a help desk ticket and list them out.  I almost suggested you PM me but honestly, I'll lose it in my PM box.  Lips sealed

2) Hopefully one day we'll be able to do that! We're in a bit of a programming time slump at the moment, but hopefully that won't stay the case. Smiley

Yeah... I didn't think it was quite important enough to report to a Mod immediately, but it's the sort of thing that's just gonna keep on happening, and then someone, one day, is going to have to go through and clean up the tags.

I, by the way, volunteer to be that person. Tagging things soothes something in my soul.  Cheesy

I agree!  Please report them.  We have enough mods running around fixing Report to Moderators.  I think that's definitely the best way to get them cleaned up.
