Not directly, but you're right, my thought came from a technical point of view. For instance, once thread prefixes are in place, they will be visible in the advanced search form (so people can search within specific prefixes). Having too many thread prefixes (we will have more in other forum sections) means you'll have a longer list which will require more scrolling (and more html code). Nothing serious, but something to consider before we get started.

This is all correct. Specifically, the way we've it set right now, a thread can have up to 25 tags. The uploader can choose up to five tags himself (immediately when he creates the thread or at any point later). Members can then add their own tags, but only up to two tags per member.

Thread prefixes can only be added or changed by the thread creator (or the moderation team), and they are from a predefined set.
