This is definitely something that we plan to implement. The first form of categorisation that we will introduce will be colour coding of events, with the ability to specify what each colour means in an on screen ‘key’ – see idea http://histropedia.uservoice.com/forums/246686-general/suggestions/6158629-colour-coded-events.
Regarding tagging events:
We have been thinking that the timeline directory will effectively behave as an automatic topic based tag for events (each event is tagged with the public timeline names it is part of), but I can see that this would not be as flexible as the ability to select custom tags. We’ll keep an eye on this idea for the future.Scott McNay commented
I'm interested in the ability to have multiple keywords/tags on each event.
This is a feature we have planned.
It will allow you to choose between a number of aliases for every event. These aliases can be edited or added by anyone.
Other aliases for the event “Presidency of Barrack Obama” could be:
1. “Barrack Obama”
2. “Obama presidency”
3. “44th President”
4. "44th President of the US
Note: This feature will not let you create completely new events, it will just allow alternative names for the exisitng one’s.
For creating distinct new events, see feature http://histropedia.uservoice.com/forums/246686-general/suggestions/6307522-create-global-events-linked-to-any-section-in-a-w
We agree this would be an excellent addition.
This functionality will be added along side the feature “create personal events” http://histropedia.uservoice.com/forums/246686-general/suggestions/6283224-create-personal-events-not-available-to-other-use
You will also be able to create a personal event by customising any existing event in the database.
