What are related tags?

Items have multiple tags.  Relative to one specific tag on one specific item, all the other tags on that item are called "related tags".   Collectively for a tagroom,  the related tags are all the tags that appear anywhere on an item in that room. 

Tags

  1. item~editing
  2. folksonomy
  3. related tags
  4. fastblogit

That all would be fine as a simple spec except that you don't explain what clicking on one of those tags does to the current contents of the current tagroom.
It restrains the current tag room to require that all items in the room have that tag.

Let me ask the question then in another way. If i am in some tagroom and I click on a tag on some item is that going to put me in a tagroom whose contents are exactly the same as if I had started out from the living stream and selected that tag from the search list on the left ?
the 2 red tags go together.
Yes.

Each click on a related tag does what? Each click on a subsequent tag on an item does what ? Each click on an item in the lefthand list does what ?
Each click on a tag in the the related tags list will go to a new tag room which is the same as the current room but additionally restrained by the tag just clicked upon.   Obviously subsequent clicks on the related tag list progressively narrow the selection of items in the room.

Currently it just goest to that tag room.  It does not place a restraint on the room from which you clicked.   The same is for the left tags index and also for the live tag search.   The only click that is diffrenent is the related tags.

I guess i had a brain fart thinking I was identifying thought 568 which only has the tag folksonomy. 


& indeed the contents of the room changed.  That seems in conflict with:

Because it also alters the content of the room.... those are the things I need to know. The red that is ambiguous as well.

Well, yes, there is that old pesky ambiguous pronoun.  The that in my " Currently it just goest to that tag room" refered, of course, to the tag room defined by the single tag in the item that you clicked upon.

So then I could put it that the first tag selected defines the tagroom contents & any other tag selected re-selects a tagroom except that a tag selected from the related tags list at the top of the tagroom restricts the selection to those items tags logically ANDed together, eh ?
Yes that is all very true.  I tend to think of tag rooms as being named and defined by the url that calls the room from the server.  So if you look at the url's you will see the anding as just a comma separated list of tags.   There is not URL, yet defined or planned, which specifies a list of tags and or's them.
