comment Assigning tags to user?
Separately a user meta based solution doesn't have the same benefits as a user taxonomy based solution would. The queries are faster with taxonomies and multi-relationships are supported much better by default. Now if user taxonomies weren't overall crippled...

comment How to show a hierarchical terms list?
In case anyone needs a hierarchical CHECKLIST (not the question here but related for people building custom UI for hierarchical taxonomies), the best answer is to use wp_terms_checklist() with your custom taxonomy.

comment How to show a hierarchical terms list?
I think the logic is that it's a related problem. I found this post trying to figure out how to get a category-style hierarchical checklist and am tempted to add an answer here now that I've figured it out. I won't though because as you point out it doesn't answer the OQ.

comment Altering the appearance of custom taxonomy inputs
No update in 2 years unfortunately :( This is really something WP should add core support for as many people would use one-term-per-object taxonomies if it was an option (i.e. use taxonomies rather than meta when query performance is important).

comment Custom taxonomy on users with UI
My goal is to answer my own question with all the solutions I've found (esp. based on that justintadlock.com post). Still working on it but will hopefully post soon. the lh-user-taxonomies plugin is based on the same post, but IMHO isn't a very versatile solution.

comment User: Editor, can't see edit taxonomy screen
Note that plugins can alter the default roles and add new roles with any mix of capabilities. That said edit_posts is a good cap if you want all authors to be able to edit the taxonomy. Make sure they can't delete taxonomy terms unless you want them to.

comment Taxonomy Meta Box in User Profile?
This article is pretty old now so hopefully someone will make an up to date tutorial. Ideally the answer here on WPSE would have all the details and not rely on outside links, but in this case the link works.

comment Get current custom user taxonomy
FWIW you are really answering a whole other question here, that being: "How can I enable multiple-selections in a user taxonomy".
