    I was thinking the other day of ways that would improve my experience with AAM, and I think one area that could be improved on is the use of prefix's or tags for posts.

    Take, for example, the Pensions forum for example. The questions in this forum could be sub-divided into say
    - setting up pension funds
    - contribution levels
    - questions on defined benefits
    - questions on options around retirement/cashing in
    - mandatory pension proposals
    etc

    While it does not really impact most posters who are answering specific questions asked, it would assist with searching for similar questions on AAM. A filter mechanism on these prefixes would be beneficial

    An alternative would be to make tags mandatory when creating a post, but also allow others to edit the tags associated with a thread. So what could start out as a 'FINANCIAL_REVIEW' discussion may end up discussing WORK_LIFE_BALANCE etc.

    A easy search engine on these tags would also be fantastic - I am sure one exists somewhere (other than google)

    Any thoughts? I am thinking more of people searching for details rather than answering posts

    To all contributors - please do keep up the good work !
