we'd love to hear from you!
If i write "Flowers" and the label already exists an alert comes up. Instead, just add the label "Flowers"
100% agree, Alvar.Roger, let's discuss your example... If I want to tag a photo with Flowers and it is not in the system, giving the option to add it as a new label right away makes more sense than forcing them to go back to the add form. Same with Adding... if it is already in the system give a note about that and allow the user to also set the label right away without having to go back to the original form, search for it and tag there.
We are working on improving Labels right now - it's one of our focuses (foci?)
We've toyed around with what you suggest, but our worry is that if we automatically create a Label that you're searching for (if it doesn't exist) - then people may end up creating too many Labels by mistake - through spelling mistakes, etc.
