This came up in another thread, but it would be a separate feature that can apply to several situations. I'm suggesting an ability to "apply" hashtags to group members. If a member has a certain tag, then all topics they start would automatically have that tag. Possible uses:
- the member's geographical location in, for example, a group doing sales
- the species of the member's pet in a group about animals
- the specific diagnosed disease of the member's pet in a group about pet health
- the member's area of specialty in a technical group
The ability to apply hashtag to a member would also allow moderators to apply a "moderated" hashtag to any member whose threads they want to be automatically moderated, or various other characteristics of hashtags (auto-lock within a given duration, reply to sender, etc.) depending on the member's situation.
There are probably other uses.
Messages are the sole opinion of the author, especially the fishy ones.
