unique distinct idiosyncratic peculiar

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.

Back-Taggers, Back to Work!

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.

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.

Retrotag Project - details and requests

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.

Backtagging AskMe and MeFi

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?

Adding tagging to Ask Metafilter?

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?
