With the constant growth of NoSQL databases, wouldn't it be convenient if Daniweb had a nosql forum? Maybe not specialized forums like MSSQL, MySQL or Oracle, but a general forum for NoSQL database systems.
I just thought that, given the fact that not everyone tags their posts, a specialized forum might help on keeping those threads organized in the database general forum.
Well, the idea is to encourage everyone to start tagging their posts. If the users/posters don't themselves tag it, you can flag it as a bad post as one of the moderators will do the tagging. This should hopefully increase the "tag" adoption since with new technologies coming in so quick, one forum per topic model is very difficult to maintain. There are two ways in which websites are dealing with this; some boards/sites just have a blanket sub-forum for dealing with topics. For e.g. they would have a forum called "programming langages" which can contain query for any programming language. Other forums (notably SO) have gone the tagging route which makes it so much easier to filter/organize content.
Daniweb has gone the hybrid route; should be interesting to see how this pans out. :)

I agree. Also, I'm glad Daniweb adopted this hybrid method, since I for one get lost on places like SO and never go further than the first page :P but that may be just a design/layout issue I have with the site.
