I didn't mention my tagging system. I try to keep it fairly heirarchical to avoid having too many tags in the list to choose from, i.e. so I can collapse the branches I'm not using. I put people's names under a /people branch, mammals under a /animals/mammals branch, reptiles under /animals/reptiles, etc.
Birds, which I mainly photograph have a more complex system. They are in /animals/birds, then the letters a-z, being the initial letter or each species "name group", then the name groups, then the common names. E.g. /animals/birds/s/Shoveler/Northern Shoveler. The heirarchy is not set up to indicate any kind of relationship between the species, it's purely to help me find the tags easily. Scolling through a list of 1000s of species sorted alphabetically by the first part of the name is not helpful. In that particular example, if the heirarchy is all collapsed, I only need to expand 4 branches then scan through a short list of shovelers (just 2 in my country).
