MartinCleaver 5 5 3 3 3 3   no no I have to say this is the best plugin I've seen on TWiki.org in the last 3 years. Bloody fantastic.
MeredithLesly 4 4 1 3 3 3 0 no no Because the way that TagMePlugin is implemented does not allow topics to be renamed, I had to remove it from my Dakar installations. I also prefer to avoid plugins that do not conform to PluginsApiPolicies, but the inability to rename topics without losing their tags is the real killer. I regret this, as it would have given some very useful functionality to my current project that I may not have time to implement myself. See TagMePluginDev for more on this subject. {1}
DaliborSvoboda 5 4 3 4 3 4 1 no no  
FredMorris 5 4 4 4 4 2 3 yes yes I don't think the concept is "one of a kind", but it's cutting edge in terms of social interactivity. I first tried to install it on an older TWiki installation, and it didn't seem to "take" for unknown reasons. Then I tried to get it working for some people who had installed it on the debian-under-windows distro, and couldn't. So I created a new Dakar (4.0.4) install and it worked fine there. I modified the code to implement a status="no" parameter so that I could get it to fit sanely into the PatternSkin toolbar (with some associated template and CSS changes). I'll move over to TagMePluginDev now..

JasonMurdoch 5 5 3 5 5 5 1 no no This brings twiki to another level.
LisaJSinclair 5 4 3 4 4 4 1 no no Works fine on Firefox, but gives no results on IE7. Will raise a bug for this.

{1} Repl to original comment, "Writing into the pub hierarchy is not approved API": Not exactly true. The official doc (TWiki03.TWikiPlugins#RecommendedStorageOfPluginData and TWiki04.TWikiPlugins#RecommendedStorageOfPluginData) recommends to store topic-specific data such as generated images in the topics attachment area. Please follow up in TagMePluginDev.
