Adding tags before title of the question

Because I cannot get my "punch u thru the innertubesatron" working properly, I cannot find relief from the frustration that TAGS IN TITLES causes me. While complaining bitterly about it, I felt a small movement in my brain. I'm not sure what kind of movement it is, or what puns other than the obvious one to make about it... I did make a mockup of it like to see it here it goes:

Moveng tags up top

A large majority of users seem to believe that tags are really important; so important they like to decorate the titles of their questions with tags (I'm not talking about the organic ones; I'm not that anal). So, why not light rather than fight?

We move the tag editor right smack up top. Blam. It has a few benefits that I can think of:

  • Editing now travels from the general to the specific in a natural flow
    • Most general task is first: the subjects the question covers
    • Middle general is second: the question, without detail
    • Most specific task is third: the details about the question
  • Tags are given a much more prominent position rather than be left as an afterthought
  • You'd have to be a moron to add a tag and then immediately begin your title with it

Some of the downsides of this:

  • Idiots who can't get past the fact that the title isn't first anymore
  • Idiots who still put tags at the start or end of their title, with or without delimiters
  • Idiots who start Meta discussions about how much this UI change sucks
  • Idiots in general who peeve me right off

So, what are the chances this will happen?

    Can I have a beta of your punch u thru the innertubesatron? I can live with some quirks as long as it doesn't punch me – Pekka Sep 19 '11 at 16:45

    Ohhh lordy, I can see it in front of my eyes: Questions tagged why does my code not work - if evil Jeff wouldn't be preventing that, the spoilsport – Pekka Sep 19 '11 at 16:46

    @Pekka: Luckily you can't add new tags unless you prove yourself not a moron. – user1228 Sep 19 '11 at 17:18
  • luv it! Although its original intention was something different from punching, no? – Pekka Sep 20 '11 at 15:46
