I was thinking lately that there should be a tag for weaves which are isomorphic, in the sense that every ring in the weave has the same connections as every other ring. So weaves like E4-1, Hoodoo Hex Sheet, Moorish Rose, Half Persian 3 Sheet 6 in 1, odd JPLs, etc would be considered isomorphic whereas weaves like Elfsheet, Vipera Berus Sheet, Japanese 6 in 1, Byzantine, Alligator River etc would all be considered non-isomorphic. This would naturally exclude all weaves with more than one ring size as well.
was the term "pure" never put in the glossary? i seem to remeber a refference to weaves with identical connections for each ring being a "pure weave" did this term fall out of favor? though i can't say i've seen more than the one time it was used and wonder what the real function of such a reference would be. there was another term a slightly less pure though i never quite understood the description and can't remeber the term, perhaps it had something to do with being subject to handedness. rather than use a loaded term like "pure" we could say there are single stage weaves like the alpha weaves, double stage weaves like the simplest Japanese tessellations, triple quadruple stage and so on though i would have to search for examples of these and im not going to at this moment.

I would also support an isomorph tag, and I was sondering about the relation between This and the concept ”prime”-ness MW brought up.

I would like to be able to differ between cis/trans-ness when tagging images in the gallery. Even If they are classified as the same weave, the different ways may give different properties with different uses.

You guys have some great ideas. The problem with tags are once created you need to go back and add them to all the appropriate weaves and gallery items. That would be around 10,000 gallery items and 800 weaves. When we went to the new tagging system it took almost a year to go through the gallery items and that was when we had 4-6 people working on gallery items.

Just my ring's worth of input.

I wonder if it would be viable to crowdsource the tags for the weave library. Set a threshhold for acceptance (say, 10 submissions of the same tag gets added to the entry automatically) with admin override, veto, and lock permissions. Then anyone browsing the library could add tags, with the threshhold set to prevent unknowledgable people from tagging wrongly.

we tried something like that one time and it was a fiasco. Doesn't mean that it couldn't happen again I think you would need to get a great deal of support for it and the coding that would be needed to be done.
