Rebuild Tags and Uncap
Short, concise description of the idea
Rebuild the tagging system so large numbers of tags no longer cause performance issues.
Full description of the idea
Tags were capped at 1,200 distinct tags per user (originally 1,000) after it was found that users with large numbers of tags were causing clustersuck and affecting other users. The affected part or parts of the tagging system should be rebuilt so tags may be uncapped.
- Our obsessive tagging habits can continue unrestrained
- Less confusion for users who have more than 1,200 tags
- Better architecture
- Maybe most users don't really need the capability to have 30,000-odd tags
- Less incentive to finally retag those entries that had misspelled tags
