That would be my personal preference, Thomas. I’m totally about keeping things neat, tidy, and easy to find.
However, I think RandomMan’s point still stands. What is likely to happen is that people still won’t be as quick to upload media to an entry. If there is a lot going on in an image, then it takes a lot of time (in comparison to just uploading it to an entry) to upload it.
Alternatively, you end up with a lot of bunk tags like “ndksljf” and “AAAAAAAAAA” or the like. You know how you sign up for a site and come up with fake information about yourself? Forcing people to tag might end up creating a lot of unsuitable tags and would decrease the amount of media to the site. I don’t think the site on the whole wants that.
Then put filters on what actually counts as a proper tag.
But I get what he’s saying. I can see how it might reduce the amount of content on KYM. But like you, Verbose, I prefer to keep things tidy and well organized. Maybe not to James May levels, but…
