Very handy to have the top 250 tags to use as a search tool...

Interesting tags...

"Needs To Be Deleted"  on 175 books
"I"m # 1" on 88 books

It's kind-of fun to play around with.  I like that I can click on a Tag and see every book that has been 'tagged' but what I'd really like is to be able to filter that to show only my own tag group.

There's finally enough to start working with them. I can't wait until we all get enough of them added that they can implement a personal tag cloud, and searchability, now that's going to make them worthwhile! But, we still have long way to go! I think I'll go find that tag post and bump it up! Haven't seen it in a few days ;)

I was so happy to see this, it's under the COMMUNITY tab.

I can't believe the size of some RL's at over 3,000 books.  Yikes.  I thought mine was bad at around 300.  But that includes a lot of duplicates of one title that was issued in several different ISBN's.  I can't imagine having an RL over over 3,000.  It would seem hard to manage even with tagging.

I made a new post about making tags useful, and spreading word of useful tags:

Tried a tag cloud link.  It would be nice to search lists longer than 10 books at a time.  How about 50 or 100?
