Is there really any point in having the tag cloud on the front page?

I don't think I've ever used it.

I've used them a few times, but not from the tag cloud, only from the topic view

Why not put them on a separate tags page or something?

It's kinda annoying having them on the new post though.

I think the separate tags page is a good idea. I'm going to do that at some point... for now they are hiding out of the way over on the right-hand side, no big deal.

I'm considering removing the tags from the new topic box as well.. anybody think it's a bad idea?

I'd leave the tags on the topic itself, and then moderators could be free to tag items as they saw fit.

I removed the tags from the new topic page... I think it makes posting a lot simpler.

It's still possible to add tags on the topic page, but I think I'll change that too.

Definitely much cleaner.
