User-assigned flair

It would be useful to have the ability for a user to add an arbitrary tag to any other user that would be displayed as “flair” attached to that user anytime that user was shown in feed.

Adding this functionality would allow users to more easily keep a personal note as to any previous interactions with others in a shared space.

I’m mobile this morning, but will look at putting together a few mockups this afternoon.

(reference thread on mastodon - Hack Manhattan Flyer Maker: "Re: the issue of identical identities. Feature i…" - Mastodon)

Additionally, beadsland brought forward the concept of adding visual indicators as overlays to a user’s avatar to denote frequency of contact - for example, between one and five icons depending on how often you have spoken with that user.

I’ll mock up some examples like this later as well.
