BGG already allows users to track a wide range of metadata. Between tags and User Information I can track most of what I want.

But here's a simple suggestion. Consider the Status checkboxes found under User Information. I like this information because it's the most easily accessible and updateable. Just a click or two and I'm done.

Right now I use a few different tags to track certain things. I was thinking what if there were a custom section under user information in which those very tags were given the "appearance" of checkboxes. For example, on a configuration screen, a user would define a list of his favorite tags. Then, in his User Information panel would be a section called "Favorite Tags". In that section would be a labeled checkbox for each of those favorite tags. A checkbox would, of course, be checked if the tag exists and unchecked otherwise.

I know it's not hard to add tags, but I do like the idea that all my information is in a single place, like a dashboard. A simpler implementation might just move the "Your Tags" list to a block under User Information.

User-defined checkboxes! Check one vote from me. Great idea.

I'd love this - tags are great, but not nearly as easy to update as the 'Own' / 'Previously Owned' / etc. checkboxes.

(Alternately, if you could list/add/filter-by your tags from the collection view, that would serve much of the same purpose.)
