Is there a way to automatically tag books by your favorite authors? Or by disappointing authors you'd like to give another chance? Or by untried authors if you've never rated any of their works.

I already use my own #rating column to tag books I've read or abandoned.

I can manually tag these, but it'd be nice to automatically tag them after I upload books.

Instead of tagging, maybe try User Categories?

Personally, I find this to be a more elegant way of keeping track of works by favorite (and not-so-favorite) authors rather than using yet another tag or custom column.

Sorry, but the animation in the tag browser gives me migraines.

If you just want a visual indicator and don't care about searching it, you could use column icons (Preferences > Look & Feel > Column Icons) to display icons next to the author name. So you can use a star for authors you liked, or a red X for disliked authors, question mark for untested, etc. As long as the author is already in one of the rules it'll automatically show up on new books.

You might want try the User Categories plugin, it allows you to maintain a UC (add/delete things) either from a toolbar icon, or as I prefer via the book list context menu.

Sorry, I haven't been able to set up icons either, I don't know what to do.

@MarjaE - I responded to your post in the UC plugin thread.

Also hoping Kovid or chaley might respond to the concluding paragraph.
