Automatic tagging of new community entries

Automatic tagging of new community entries

Short, concise description of the idea
Allow community maintainers to specify one or more tags to be applied automatically to all new entries, much in the same way as default/minimum entry security currently works.

Full description of the idea
Some communities are dedicated (either exclusively or as mostly) to answering questions, performing tasks, or otherwise providing services to community members or LiveJournal users at large. Others may require (or be able to use) triaging of new entries after they're posted. Setting default tags would help automate both processes.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Less tedious manual drudgework
  • Lower chance of entries falling through the cracks
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Some maintainers may object to it for reason rooted in community politics.
  • May cause problems with some of the tag limits currently in force.
