Because some OSM users don't like the use of hashtags in comments, I'm planning to add another field to iD just for the hashtags. This new field will appear below the comment box, and (like the comment) will be settable via the url api. Hashtags will be saved with a new changeset tag like hashtag=#thing1;#thing2;#thing3

I think there might be a service to fetch "registered" mapathon hashtags? If so, please let me know and I'd be happy to connect iD to this service to allow users to either pick hashtags from a list, or type their own.

For a while, I'll continue to support hashtags in both the comments and this new field, so there will be time to switch over any tools like osm-stats or osm task manager. There's no rush!

@bhousel thanks for the heads up. The hashtags are pre-populated in iD/JOSM from the Tasking Manager 95% of the time. This would require an update to the Tasking Manager and OSM Stats.

One thing to keep in mind is that moving the hashtags to a special tag should be done in conjunction with the other editors, especially JOSM. This will prevent us from having to search in multiple places for them on the edits.

I'm ok with this change by it will require some work on our end that we didn't have in the pipeline and don't have funding for either on the tasking manager or osm-stats.

Just wanted to followup on this - I added a hashtags field to iD.

Any hashtags detected in the comment will be automatically extracted into this new field - so there is no rush to switch over the task manager code to use it. But it can eventually allow apps like osm-stats more flexibility to perform changeset analysis, and it frees up the comment field for users to add more meaningful comments.
