Recently I read an old post about using asterisks to indicate priority – the more asterisks entered in a node, the more important the node. This got me thinking... Is there a way to incorporate this type of scheme into #tags, with all the associated filtering goodness? The answer is "yes".
If you create a specific tag to indicate priority, then adding additional hyphens can be used to indicate increasing levels of priority. For example: #p--- is more important than #p--, which is more important than #p-. Searching on #p- will bring up all nodes tagged with #p and one or more hyphens. Adding additional hyphens to the search term will increasingly find only the more important tasks. Try it out and see what happens.
Hope this is useful, at least as food for thought.
