Community Engine for Own Web Site?

The internet forums / bulletin boards are dying. They actually were a
form of a limited community only having a discussion feature. Now the
"real" communities are coming everywhere with relations, blogs, maps
etc. Well one can easily create own community on the sites like Ning.

But: what if I want to have the same thing, but on MyOwnDomain.com ?
In other words - are there "community engines" available? Googling on
this topic is difficult - these words are appearing in many contexts.

categorizing tags?

What makes tags so appealing is that they are:
1. User-contributed (the user determines what tags to apply to an item)
2. User-defined (the users determine what tag to apply to a concept)

There is a consensus-building process that seeks to answer "what is the
best tag for this concept / this item?" From the point of view of the
users, the answer is "whatever enables folks to find this concept / this item".

Criterion: by frequency

Tag frequency is a technique that systems have to make it easier for users
to find concepts and items tagged with those concepts.

categorising tags?

Is it a good practice to categorise tags?

as far as i know, tags are meant to be non-linear. del.icio.us has 2 ways to
organize tags - alphabetically and by frequency.
I was surprised to see MSN organizing tags by grouping them under
categories<http://qna.live.com/BrowseTags.aspx>.

doesn't that totally go against the whole concept of tags?

Best,
Soo
