    Maybe have a set number of NB info signs and sign 
locations. One of the problems of signage is the 
clutter of all kinds in all places. If possible, 
designate some places (e.g. wall and pillar surfaces) 
that are to be free of anything by the NB info sign. 
    As to tagging, that seems a good community editing 
convention. Accept different points of views expressed 
and the aspect of revising and reprinting the signs on 
a regular basis. 
    I like the doocracy approach to signage. Make a 
few signs and places to set examples and see what 
others do. Let the approach to signage develope 
organically over time. I think the aspect to insist on 
is to de-clutter the areas around the signs.
