I have a suggestion which I feel would improve the tag searching on the 3 sites, and allow you to combine tags without the search box. The UI I have in mind is 'borrowed' from Delicious and is basically a crumb trail that you can click and add tags into. I'm sure they took it from another source however, and isn't their own creation. For a demo try here.

This could sit underneath tab bar (stats,newest,hotest etc.) fairly easily.

If you're browsing about with a brolly on the site, you can click on the tags and traverse them, adding them along the way for a finer granularity.

It would be nice to also have the ability to remove it from a trail so you can adjust as you go along to see what questions appear with what tag combination.

Back button wouldn't help really if you want to nix the second of a list of four or seven without backtracking and traversing the tree manually.

  • What's a brolly? And please don't answer if it's a burly guy with a bow; i'm already more than a bit worried by your strange computer techniques.

  • A brolly is an umbrella. Because you're walking in a rain of tags.
