Great. Won't have to change my "Powers" tags then...

Could somebody sticky this thread (so the list doesn't get lost), please? Or, at the least, sticky a post with the agreed-upon list once that exists and is compiled?

'Combat' for discussions of combat-centered rules, traits or strategies.
'Überthread' for those big ones. You know, endless ones.
'Resource' for threads recommending gaming resources - software etc.
'Raw' for strictly RAW-compliant discussions. There should also be designated as such in the OP.

Either 'random thought table' or 'ideas to share' or 'give-away ideas' for non-organized but neat ideas.
'Adventure seeds' for ideas on building adventures.
Add 'brainstorm' if the intent is an active exchange of many vaguely related ideas, as opposed to attempting to perfect a single raw idea.

Sorry for multiposting - I can't Edit my posts right now.

Most people probably can't easily write the "¨"'s necessary for "Ü".
What about 'megathread'?

It's not like they are common. Nor will people tag them as such upon creation. Just MO.

What is the point of standardization? If you want to make searching easier, then you should use tags that are easy.

Point taken. In which case, I'll reserve 'überthread' for merely humorous application. :p

How about a "external resource" tag for threads that link to external resources?

We could use 'author explanation' since a Peter Dell'Orto and Phil Masters can (and usually give) explanations about respective books as well.

Why not "custom settings"?

I'd vote for 'IWcustom'
