I'm in a similar boat; I feel like this would be easy to implement and would be extremely helpful!
I have created the board and assigned frankz, psychoadept, phred and hiccup as moderators of that board. Anyone else who want to contribute let me know

I think some screenshots of your settings and the results would be helpful here

The script is exactly what Hiccup posted in his tutorial. If I go to Edit Preferences/then Tags(1) and look at custom 1:, I see Picard title full. I then Define New Tags and I see the 6 new scripts. I'm in the main preferences window (I think), where do I link it?
Questions / Re: Edits with Tag Inspector

I've only seen it when saving a tag or tags using the Tag Inspector.
This has suddenly changed.
I was editing tags in the Tag Editor (-not- the Tag Inspector) and got the same message as when I started this thread: Tags were made outside of MB and may need to be rescanned. (Or something close to that.) I thought the screenshot would've captured the warning message, but it didn't. I was editing the title tag and using a hotkey (Edit: Save/ Goto Next) to move from track to track.The warning appeared upon each move. I wasn't using a hotkey when this was happening in the Tag Inspector.

If you're seeing the script in the main panel, that means there's an error in your script.

For the others, I'm not sure I understand. You created the new frield. Did you then link it to the custom tag in the main preferences window?
It's your baby, though…

It's not my baby yet ;-)
It is still just considering putting one on this planet.
With the understanding that there are limitations to how well I am able to oversee all aspects and implications.

Yes, with the implementation that you are thinking of you could create a shortcut link to one specific post that focuses on one specific element of a larger matter.
With my suggestion the link would lead to a larger article that contains the answer. It will ask a little bit more effort for the person looking for the answer, but at the same time he gets presented with much more possibly interesting and useful information on the same matter.
And, the one creating the link can easily include the title of the paragraph or some relevant keywords from that article.
Both approaches will have there pro's and con's.

But...  we shouldn't do this at all if the enthusiasm and the confidence in it is low and people that would have to do the job see lots of bears on the road.
It will need to be a community driven effort, and at least a couple of influential and active forum members will need to be enthusiastic and motivated, and have their noses in the same direction.

Maybe it just isn't such a good idea and we should drop it.
Questions / Re: importing other tags from discogs

I've muddled with the field settings some but it's not quite working for my end goal.  Thank you for answering my question, though!
Well it'd be up to the editors to prevent duplicates and overlap.

I'd thought that the point was to be able to link users directly to the answer to their specific question.  This sounds more like linking them to a post that lists every issue related to that topic, among which is the answer to their question or issue.  That's only one step more granular than the monolith FAQ.

Now that I understand better what you're trying to accomplish, I've got to say that I agree with psychoadept that a wiki format would be better than forum posts to perform this function.  At least on a wiki you can section it out with links to each section.  Not saying the fandom wiki in particular because of the problems I listed before with the ads and tracking on that site, but a local wiki that only approved moderators could edit.

It's your baby, though, and I'm very interested to see how your vision turns out.  Whatever format it takes, It'll be miles better than typing "it's a false positive" every few days. :)

OK, I did that and they did autofill.

I also realized that I need to put these new tags into the "Set Displayed Fields", which I did. For the Work [full] and Work [adapt], what appears is the script.
For Work [top] and Work [ sub ], there's nothing. This is true for all the music in my library, even the ones which I didn't run through Picard.
And, for Picard title full (the custom tag label), it just says that; and it says that only for the one file I ran through Picard.
