idea for making sure images have all the tags they need

Posted under Tags

(I posted about this once before, but I'm posting again because I made a revision to my original idea.)

There's a lot of pictures on this site that are severely lacking when it comes to tags (like, they only have half a dozen or so, maybe less). My original idea was to create some type of program that would automatically add tagme to any picture with less than a certain number of tags, but that might be hard for the moderators to come up with such a program, and what the threshold should be would probably be heavily debated.

My new idea is to just have tagme be in the tag box as a default whenever someone uploads a new image.

If the uploader wants to fill in the tags for their upload, they can take tagme out.
If they don't have the time or energy to add tags right then, they can leave it in so someone else can do it later.
If they don't want to fill in the tags for their upload but take tagme out anyway, they're an asshole.

having tag me in every post would be a clutter. i like your original idea better. the site already adds in tagme if no tags are added at all. i cant change how the site handles the tagme tag but imo a tagme should be added if there are less the 5 general tags or no character/copyright tags. this is a vistarr thing he owns the site and has control over it.

Thanks for clarifying some things for me. And it's nice to know that an Admin shares my thoughts on this. Do you know if there's any way to sort posts by number of tags? That, I suppose, would be the next best thing to my idea.

I would just like to see 3 defaults:
artist request
copyright request
character request

They're more poignant than 'tagme' and prompts people to leave those in if they don't supply the tag

the idea is not bad, but: not working.
i know enough pics and nobody knows the artist or: there is no character name and source name.
so adding ..._request would be wasted so many times.
