Is it possible for projects and public discussions to have a tagging system that can be included in the searches?

How are discussions and projects doing for you in "searches" ? I get pretty good results on "Projects" (haven't tested as much in discussions). I also "follow" a lot. In fact, I follow so many projects, I broke it. :) :)

Searching on projects is quite good but not much on public discussions.

I agree. I have no problem finding projects with a keyword search. I can't even find projects by the name of the initiator.

So let's raise an enhancement request in http://help.geni.com/. Post back the link to the request in this discussion and I'll go vote "me too."

I don't have access. You may have entered that as an individual help request rather than a "community enhancement" request -- I know it's not that clear.

Try it from this category:

Even when you go to http://help.geni.com/forums/337266-feature-requests

it's still not clear that to submit a feature REQUEST you have to click on "Suggest an IDEA" and NOT "Submit a REQUEST" which would intuitively be how I would have thought you submit a "feature REQUEST".

Maybe we need to suggest an IDEA to clarify the terminology?

Dear LipLip,

Thank you for contacting Geni with the great suggestions. Rather than responding to each email individually, let us assure you that we are tracking them all and adding them to our list of future ideas. We appreciate your taking the time to contact us, as we are working to improve the site, and suggestions like yours are an indispensable part of that.

I would like to request that there will be a tagging system for both projects and public discussions. This will generally help Geni users in their searches for projects and public discussions.
