 I found the Themes Directory Tag Filter (https://wordpress.org/themes/tag-
 filter/) always very useful, but what was always bothering me lots, was
 the subject category. It currently states:

 * Holiday
 * Photoblogging
 * Seasonal

 I believe that you have way bigger plans for this thing anyways, but can't
 we as a very quick improvement just add a list of subjects that are
 actually relevant to the real world of 2014 WordPress Themes? Here is a
 quick list with suggestions:

 * Personal Blog
 * Magazine
 * Portfolio
 * Photography
 * Film and TV
 * Business
 * Travel
 * Technology
 * Political
 * Charity
 * Nightlife
 * Events
 * Restaurants & Cafes
 * Music / Bands / DJs
 * Wedding
 * WooCommerce
 * Miscellaneous

 I'm pretty sure there are better ways to organize the Themes Directory and
 that you are probably working on some sort of real Marketplace-ish
 directory. Still, I hope the Tag Filter can receive a quick "first aid"
 help until the proper solution is in place.

 Let me know if I can help!

 '''Please note:''' I have already discussed this with the Theme Review
 team and opened a ticket in meta trac. I ended up here since apparently
 the tags need to be implemented by Core first, before they can be used for
 the Directory.
 I understand that this might sound like trivial issue for Core, but I
 would nonetheless like to bring this issue up. I think there are great
 free themes out there. They are just very difficult to find...
