    yeah actually thats a good question. i just went through to make sure mine were indeed all tagged, fixed some tagging errors, added some tags, and retagged some other ones... but they were almost ALL tagged, and now they are all most definitely tagged completely so how are we picking winners? i hope retagging things didnt ruin my chances...
    good idea for a rumble though, i know i dont like it much when things aren't tagged!

    "most descriptive" ok that just means obsessive. I can do that.

    what is the best way to go about tagging all your photos?

    i'd like to suggest a pull-down tab for the CAMERA and FILM similar to the COUNTRY tab. this will help TAG the photos properly.

    instant tags would also be good like... when you choose LC-A as your camera, it would automatically tag your photos with LOMO, 35MM, ANALOG, etc.

    or when you choose the film, say Kodak Elitechrome, it should automatically tag your photos with SLIDE, 35MM, KODAK, etc.

    so u want us to include pointless tags like "photograph, picture, image, his, him, boy, guy, macho, sneakers, shoe, shoe lace, sole" like that?

    I agree with panelomo.
    Tagging should be made easier, first. There's not even an easy way to find your untagged pictures. Will there ever be the possibility to search for tags in my own lab? I really miss that feature.

    I agree with panelomo and cinzinc. I think all my photos are tagged, but this is lomography, not a microstock site, what additional tags do I need? Male, 30-35 years old, Afro-American, copyspace ? Tagging should be made easier (especially Film/Camera) and if you want more tags enable ITPC support. Thus we can tag our pics using the method of our choice.
    Perhaps add a little checkbox by the film to denote if it is expired or not, most of my pics don't appear in the "film of the day" searches because I'm forced to use unorthodox tags to really describe them well :)

    same here!

    I agree with panelomo and cyan-shine, I really dislike how there are many tags about the same camera or film, the system should be simplified so that mistakes in tagging can be avoided. I end up having to use a tag that may or may not be the right or most popular tag, which means my image won't show up in searches. This is unnecessarily complicated :/

    I'm glad that I love tagging my stuff!

    All my photos have been tagged too. But I've said this before and I'll say it again...tags should not be case sensitive. If I tag LC-A or lc-a it should bring up the same results, but it doesn't.
