Suggestion: no limit on number of tags for an idea submission.

Rationale: Tags are an open-ended catch-all social mechanism best used in an organic sense from community input. Limiting the number of tags in an ideas post to 5 feels unnecessarily restrictive and can dampen the natural benefit of the pattern. Furthermore, there is no indication of this limit in the prompt text -only as an error condition after a post is submitted.

Hi @JohnMNelson  thanks for you feedback, sorry for your frustrations. I have increased the number of tags allowed per post to 15 for now and can re-evaluate later if that does not seem to be enough. I think 5 might have been an out of the box setting that we didn't customize at time of launch. Again apologies for any frustration this may have caused.
