The search function sounds nice, but at the moment it would be nice if there was just a simple list of all tags on a page somewhere. Right now, the biggest problem I'm having on the site right now is that I have no idea what tags exist so I don't know where to look for content interesting to me, and I have no idea where to find what tags exist. Just give me a list and I'll CTRL+F like crazy, fancy stuff can come later.

Totally agreed.

mk, would it be possible to have an "all tags" list? Maybe just showing the top 100 most used tags? We could house the link in "community." I agree that it would be an interesting way to enhance discovery. Thanks for the suggestions JohnnyDangerous and lesath.

Edit: Actually, just being able to expand the popular list should be able to take care of this right?

The problem with the expanded popular list is that no matter how many tags you show, you still only show the more popular ones (unless you end up showing the whole list). What happens to the more obscure tags?

That being said, it's definitely a step in the right direction.
