I've noticed that I use a pair of tags for my front page posts that no other or only a few other posters use. Doing some digging, I've found a few unique or highly limited tags. Do you know of any more? [more inside]
I'm curious as to when/why the 'I was a backtagging superstar!' was removed from profiles.

The MeFi back tagging team has done it again, adding titles to over 10,000 AskMe questions in ten days. Thank you! [more inside]
Holy crap, the back tagging project (recent update) is complete! 43,000 old posts have been keyworded by a team of hundreds of volunteers here. A huge thanks to all, I never thought we'd finish up all those old MeFi posts. [more inside]
Just a quick note on what's going on with the backtagging project and some "go go go!" momentum for a final push to the finish. [more inside]

If we click on the music tag, and scroll down to see the Users who often use this tag, we find that CKmtl has used the tag in 65 posts, and nkknkk has used the tag a staggering 164 times! But in fact, it's not true. What's up? [more inside]
The back-tagging team seems to have languished in their zeal to backtag all old Metafilter and AskMetafilter posts (I know I have fallen behind). I think we should set a goal end-date for ourselves, and really push ourselves to get it all done. Details inside.
Hey back-taggers! What are the top 10 tags displayed on your userpage? (For both MeFi and AskMe.) Also, we're nearing 50%—let's do a page (or 3 =) today!
My profile says I posted two AskMes tagged with "dog", but I really haven't.
Backtaggers: When you backtag an AskMe post, do you base it solely on the original question, or do you incorporate information about comments/answers?
Backtaggers: When you backtag an AskMe question, do you base your tags solely on the original question, or do you incorporate information about comments/answers? I realize there is probably no hard and fast rule, I'm just curious how y'all are doing it.
So we've been working on backtagging old posts for about five days now. We've gotten about 10% of them done. I just wanted to drop a note here for anyone who missed the sidebar note, the podcast note or the other MeTa thread. If you'd like to help with tagging old untagged posts, drop me an email or IM with your usernumber and email address and I'll get you set up. If you're already helping, thank you very much, we're making great strides.

My petition for the creation of a squad of mefites with the power to add tags to old posts.
Dear Matt, would it be possible to grant a few trusted volunteers enough rights to be able to add tags to the MeFi and AskMe back catalogue?
So there's roughly 8,000 questions now in AskMe (# of June questions x 11 months).... May I humbly request an update on the tagging project, or any other ponies that could help make this the great resource it's screaming to be? And has any more thought been given to how metadata could be added to the questions already in the db?
