[drupal-devel] Schema Changes for a Shared Taxonomy OTF/Folksonomy

I slept on this. I'm wondering if the following change:
> * The first would be "term_data". It would include a new "uid"
> field which would be the uid of the user who created the term.
> In vocabularies that were not folksonomies, uid would be 0.
is even necessary. Is it important to keep track of who created a tid?
* in non-folksonomy cases, typically only admins control the creation
of tids. generally speaking, there are never "more than enough
admins" to cause confusion over who created a term - an inquiring
admin can just ask around and find out the culprit.
* knowing who created a tid (folksonomy or not) seems only important
when it becomes a negative issue: someone made "dumbshit" and you
want to know who to yell at. here, you'd have to assume:
* other users would find no use for "dumbshit", reducing it's use
so that the number of uids using the tid (via term_node, see
previous email) would be small enough to ask around "manually".
* if "dumbshit" is a bad tag, /any/ uid using it is at fault -
it's less of an issue of who created the bad tag, and who
is actually /using/ the bad tag.
Thoughts? These questions apply to all the folksonomy implementations.
