This is fun mk. Nice work. I just tried it out on a couple of posts. I'm interested to see how it is used by the community and really interested to see how other people tag content that I post. Have I been way off in my cataloging of posts? We shall see.

Very cool.

Thanks. I agree that it will be interesting to have another type of community feedback on a post. It is a new dynamic for sure. I also hope that it alleviates some pressure on the author when choosing a tag. I know that I have been torn between a couple of different tags (ex. #mars or #spaceexploration), and knowing that the community can add one, I won't sweat the decision so much.

Yeah the space/mars/etc posts have been bugging me as well. I can never remember which one is most used.

Question: Can you participate if you've received a badge from someone else but have yet to earn one?

No. But that's an interesting option.

This definitely adds a new dimension to the site. I'm noticing some of the tags I suggested are changing. Then I click on the new suggested tag and see that it's "mk" changing my #crush tag to #psychology. You thief.

In all honesty, it's probably a better tag for that post.

It's neat to see the evolution.

At some point, I think I will add a measure of how many of your suggested tags are currently implemented.
