Keywords that you can add, I assume to help in searching for threads (I assume)

I suppose if you put say electrical as a tag and then search for electrical in the search it comes back with that one included.

You can also tag other peoples threads (as I have done)

When someone is looking for ur thread/deal they put in words that u will have added as Tags for example 'Tesco' 'laptop' and it will make it easier for them to find ur thread. I think that's right anyway.....does it make sense tho??? :? lol

Makes more sense to me now, thanks for your help.

Usually they are used to abuse the OP though.

I have put 'want to know how to tag!' into the search and filtered by misc and this thread is top so I think I am right. (but someone cleverer than me will correct me if not)

They seem to for me, try typing any tag from misc into the search and filter to misc and it comes up.

I remember BG1 used to always put the same word/ phrase in the tag, I assumed it was an easy way of searching his old threads.

Take the never ending with pictures thread in misc, it has a tag 'great thread'.

If I put 'great thread' in the search and filter to misc it is the top thread.

Fair point, I see what you are saying. What point do the Tags serve then?

if everyone used them in all posts, then you would click on tag and it would bring every thread with that tag in up, as for anything else i have no idea, i always thought tags where for searching, but it seems not here
