Site taxonomy

Site taxonomy (tags)

Like most web sites, this one allows you to tag content so that related content can easily be found together.
Unlike most web sites, tagging content is not something we do as an after-thought, without paying it too much attention. The proper tagging of content is an important part of our strategy to serve the community.

Primary objectives

Although currently a work in progress, the site taxonomy, i.e. the way different pages are content are tagged according to topics, is an important way content is categorized.

The aims are:

  • To allow users to find the most relevant content on any topic.
  • To find the most compelling content, whenever it was posted, newer content not necessarily being more interesting than older one.
  • To provide a community-editable wiki article related to each topic.
  • To present on any topic the best available content, with the highest signal to noise ratio.
