Yes, but the available tags files were listed on the Wiki page which
makes them more attractive and more eye-catching. IMO.

Ok, then we don't agree :).

For those tags files I uploaded, I added the credits also into the tags
files itself as a comment. Though, I still think it's important to have
this information on the wiki page as well.

I don't see your strong opinion against "maintaining" this list on the
wiki. It's not that this list updates twice a day, rather once a month.
And so the overall maintenance is quite small and you are not the only
one who does it.
