You can even do +or+ in there to get OR logic. I had tested this on Gaming, but withdrew it thinking that it's too much of a hassle to worry about. – Grace Note Nov 16 '10 at 18:50

@Grace Neat! I guess my main question is: Can I use this, say on a tag wiki page, and expect it to work in the future? – yhw42 Nov 16 '10 at 19:06
I thought about that when I did the test on Gaming. You know what I concluded? It looks ABSOLUTELY HORRENDOUS, and isn't intuitive to know what it does. I think it's more useful to just make compound logic strings as pure hyperlinks. Tag formatting is awesome... but I don't think we need to try and accomodate all the logic to make them complex. I think of it as an easter egg more than anything I'll ever use. – Grace Note Nov 16 '10 at 19:11
