Forum: Ruby-Forum.com [Req] : allow user to tag/flag messages, threads..

Announcement (2017-05-07): www.ruby-forum.com is now read-only since I unfortunately do not have the time to support and maintain the forum any more. Please see rubyonrails.org/community and ruby-lang.org/en/community for other Rails- und Ruby-related community platforms.

see title.

This info is stored per user.
Motivation: tag interesting messages, for later usage.

=> the logical next step is to display the user-entered tags => search
previously tagged messages, by tag (à-la del.icio.us)

Another option would be for the tags to be global (=> usable by all
users in search).

If appointed volunteers where authorized to assign those tags to thread,
the entire community would benefit: it would make the permanent shower
of messages that is this list much more searchable.

example of tags:
  platform: linux, macos, windows
  section:  view, controller, model, db, installation, hosting,
optimization, plugin, engine
  db:    mysql, postgres, sqlserver, sqllite
  misc: ide, ruby, noise (= useless)
   level: newbie, advanced
   etc..

When starting a search, you would click the tags as in del.icio.us to
limit the search.
