suggest collecting "tablet" and "touch" threads


Will all of the recent press and movie product placement for "touch" "surface" and "tablet" features, coupled with HP Touchsmart(tm) and similar new hardware how might LQ enable stringing together the various "touch" and "tablet" postings and threads from hardware, software, desktop, install, laptop etc?

Similarly, how might LQ enable stringing together "everything digital art" or "everything video production" or "audio production" [production vs. tinker and fiddle]?

Just a thought,
~~~ 0;-Dan

This is one of the reasons we implemented tagging here at LQ.

SUGGESTION: a "tag finder" filter

With that in mind, LQ might consider adding a Find Tags button
along with the Preview Posting button.

The Find Tags button might filter the posting along the lines of a kwic index (Key Word In Context) generator or unique word histogram. These terms might then be compared against the existing LQ tag cloud. The OP would then get a list of keywords that might be appropriate tags.

Automatic contextual thread tagging is something that's currently on the TODO.

SUGGESTION: a "tag this" helper

Along with "preview post" and "spell check" it might make sense to offer a wizard or avatar helper dialog that asks questions to assist an OP with tagging their question.

The questions might seek to know "what were you trying to accomplish when you needed to answer this question?" In addition, details about "home use" "business use" "business at home use" "recreational use" "professional use" "enterprise use" "artist use" inform the operation context of the question.
