force tags to be made ?

With the potential to lose an item - would it be a good idea to force the author to put at least one tag on an item. Perhaps not force but just pop up a warning message stating the potential for losing the item.

Discuss.

btw - items that are private DON'T flow inth the common stream - contrary to the byline on the header of the common stream.

that's just a bit too literal for me

i think items getting lost because they are untagged is just something that people will learn by using folksonomy. many people dont tag when they make the item and the item will not instantly dissapear, it will be on the top of their group, many time one tags it after the fact.

this is one of those things we can wait until somebody complains before fixing, i guess (;-)))

Perhaps ... im saying that people learn by the consequences of their actions ... the danger of loosing an item is right after you post it is extremely slim since it always appears in the group you just made and that is the next screen you land on after the post. So even if the common steeam is flowing too fast to find your item there, you still will land on it and have a url for it. Now if you dont bookmark thar or dont tag it and then to find it later, maybe you will learn to tag things. I would not want to penalize everybody else who tags their items after the fact with a warning.
