Community moderators - create new tags

Community moderators - create new tags

Short, concise description of the idea
Community maintainers should have the option of giving community moderators the ability to create new tags.

Full description of the idea
Managing a large community that has an extensive archiving system dependent on tags can be overwhelming, especially when new tags need to be created or removed almost every day. Moderators have the ability to approve and reject posts, but not create tags.

If you wanted to get some volunteers to help keep up with tagging in your community, you would have to set them up as maintainers.

When you view your "manage tags" section for a community, you have three options for who can create new tags: "any user," "members only," and "only maintainers." An ideal fourth option would be "only moderators and maintainers."

An ordered list of benefits
  • Give moderators the ability to assist the maintainer.
  • Relieves the pressure of having to screen for new maintainers when all you need your volunteers to do is create and manage tags.
  • Only adds to the options maintainers have concerning tags; doesn't take away any features we currently have.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Can't think of any!
