Why can't we label topics?

In the same way that we label comments, why can't we label topics?

    It just hasn't been implemented yet, there's a few accepted feature requests that ask for this: Add a way to identify extra-good topics, similar to the exemplary comment label system. Add a way...

        Is it just the Exemplary/Malice labels that you're thinking about, or are there other ones (even ones that don't currently exist) that you think would make sense to apply to topics?

          Exemplary was the first that came to mind. I believe Joke would work in some circumstances. Another one that comes to mind is Meta.

          If a topic is malicious, shouldn't it just be removed?

            Probably, but I guess my question is more like, "are you asking because you want to be able to mark topics as exceptionally good and/or report them, or more than that?"

                There's going to come a point where Deimos (and anyone else with the necessary permission) aren't going to be able to keep up with every topic that gets posted. Having a report option like Malice...

                There's going to come a point where Deimos (and anyone else with the necessary permission) aren't going to be able to keep up with every topic that gets posted. Having a report option like Malice will become a necessity.

                Do you think we shouldn't have a report option for topics at all, or that topics should automatically get removed if they're labelled as malicious? Your first comment's a little ambiguous on that.

                  Apologies, I was operating under the assumption that a report button would eventually exist. There absolutely should be a report button.

                    The "Malice" label [EDIT: and the "Joke" label and the "Noise" label and the "Offtopic" label] is the report button.
