It would be really nice to be able to type things like #? or #∆ or #5 or #💡 and have them become tags. It would declutter and save space because #! is much shorter than #important, for example. I use emojis at the beginning of some of my nodes to signal what type of node it is, which really helps to quickly know what I'm looking at, and it would be really nice if these emojis could be set to behave as tags do.
A couple potential issues:
1) Since # is a number sign, I imagine a lot of people might have it in their nodes in front of a number without trying to create a tag, so they wouldn't want all of those numbers to turn into tags.
A solution to this would be if we want to create a tag using a number, maybe we have to type the # symbol twice and then the number. For example if I type #3, it would not create a tag, but if I type ##3, it would create a tag (which could be displayed as #3 but in grey and underlined the way tags are)
2) Emojis as tags might be a little tricky visually because usually tags are grey, but Emojis are all different colors.
I think this could be solved by just having the # symbol that precedes the emoji turn grey and having the grey underline extend under the emoji, but leaving the emoji the color that it is, or maybe putting a grey box around the emoji
