           Summary: suggestions for browsing / tagging
           Product: openclipart.org
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: website
        AssignedTo: clipart at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: burlap at gmail.com

Just a suggestion: as tagging becomes (has become?) a default way of
categorizing things (look at flickr or any image-browsing software), why not
implement it at openclipart.org web site? Of course, there is search and new
keyword search (beta - no success for my searches), but still browsing by tags
may also be more effective. 

Take this as an example: a rubber toy duck is now located in "recreation/ toys".
Why not tag it also as "animal" and "bird"? There are enough strange creatures
there, so one more would not make a difference. 

Another thing (just a side-effect): maybe upper level categories should show all
cliparts from lower level as well. If I want to see all animals, I will take my
time browsing through tens of pages (instead of entering each and every
sub-category), if I want to be more specific, I select birds (or whatever) at once.
