    So the new forum comes with a neat little feature: tags for content. Basically we can tag everything and can group it together in this way. Think of threads/resources for demolition derbies, tags for FWD cars, etc, etc, etc.

    The valid tags are:

    Tag Cloud / overview: http://www.beamng.com/tags



    Feel free to request new tags below :)

    These guys are responsible for maintenance of the tag system: http://wiki.beamng.com/Mod_Support



    How it looks like:

    A small question regarding this new 'Mods' section; is it the intention we copy the existing threads from the old 'mods and skins' section to the new mods section or is there some way to link both threads?

    And for requesting new tags; maybe the car brands can come in useful searching for mods? (Bruckell, Gavril etc)

    "mod" seems a little pointless as a tag for a mod, but that might just be me. Something like "multiple cars" or "ai" might be useful for scenarios, along with perhaps a "cpu intensive" tag. Then there's the obvious tags for indicating the type of scenario, like "rally", "lap", "race"...

    It seems like currently all tags are allowed and searchable, though, which is generally something that sorts itself out.

    The "demolition derby" tag exists, but is missing in the list, and I'd like to reiterate my request for scenario tags, as that seems to have been missed the first time.

    Will the brand tags be updated to have ETK and Burnside?
    Also, having body style tags would be nice, like wagon, sedan etc:).

    If I remember correctly, we have "vehicle" and "terrain" in the tags, what about "scenario"?

    I'd love to see Scepheo's suggestion about the "cpu intensive" tag realised, and maybe even a "can run on a potato" one ( couldn't find a better name... )
