Here I was talking about wrong tags for cliparts. In this case, I was
considering "circle" as a tag, incorrect for a dartboard, since it's
After the game, the user could be able to see all the tags for the
cliparts they played with. The user would manually flag tags they
thought were wrong for any given clipart.
eg. after the game, the player sees:
(( this is an image of a dartboard ))
tags for this image
Darts [x this is incorrect]
V1AgrA [x this is incorrect]
Dartboard [x this is incorrect]
Game [x this is incorrect]
Sport [x this is incorrect]
Bulls eye [x this is incorrect]
circle [x this is incorrect]
The user didn't end up guessing that V1AgrA and circle were tags for
Dartboard, they could press the [x this is incorrect] button next to
those tags to flag them as wrong.
In essence, tags get modded up by users guess them as keywords while
playing, and get modded down when they review the images after the
I wasn't suggesting a programatic approach to verifying tags.
