feature-request planned
The current workflow for tags requires posting, then adding tags. This is both inconvenient for the poster (more steps) and will make later tools for post review more difficult.

The line asking for tags should be something included in the question post so one post action can mean the end of the process.

This is a popular request and I've moved it on to [to a GitHub issue](https://github.com/topanswers/topanswers/issues/19) so work can begin. I will update the post here when it is complete.
Posting a question should ask for tags up front
Jack Douglas replying to David
fwiw I think we will almost certainly let people add tags when they post questions — but I don't think we will let the OP make up new tags. That at least should come from experienced users only I think
David replying to Jack Douglas
*And* I have a lot of sympthy with this. During my most active phase on BH.SE I surreptitiously took on the self-appointed role of Gate Keeper of the Tags, routinely ridding the site of silly ones. You begin to feel like the differentiated posting flow—one for experienced, "trusted" users, and one for newcomers—has something to commend it after all.

My thinking is that question posters are not necessarily the best question taggers — I imagine anyone posting an answer will tag correctly if it hasn't already been handled by folk watching the new question list
David replying to Jack Douglas
@Caleb I find I'm simply forgetting that tagging questions is something that should be done when I'm posting (that is, really, *after* I've posted) a question. If it was integrated into a single-process "workflow", I would find that a lot more intuitive. FWIW!
Jack Douglas replying to Caleb
well you are immediately taken to the one place you *can* add tags when you post a question — I'm not sure selecting tags before posting the question would be any quicker.

Not requiring askers to tag their posts is one thing. Not _letting_ me do it when I do know what tags are appropriate is another.
Jack Douglas
@Caleb just a FYI, it is not an accidental oversight that you currently *can't* tag a question at that stage. We were toying with the idea of promoting tagging as a community action rather than part of the posting process as the OP often isn't the best person to tag. However we are very open to discussing this and doing it a different way.
