yes, its been removed now, thank goodness.

I've never even thought of clicking on that. I thought it was just the tags you'd put on your post for the search engine. Well nearly 3 years on the site and still learning! :roll:

Yes, you can - its a bit of a quirky method but it works. (you might have to be in text-only mode too - not sure!)


1. Click on the relevant tag - say 'poo' in the example above.

2. Then click on name of the original thread poster in the search results given for that tag...

...and it will take you to the profile page of who made the tag...

No probs. Think its more of a quirk than an official feature but it certainly seems accurate... (and starsparkle thinks you're sexy!)

I have them added to my threads, tend to ignore them most of the time, says more about the mentality of the person leaving them.

btw,I don't agree with the "sexy" tags added to this thread.

WOW!!!!!! jah u r so so clever!!

that would be me! :P (in this thred I mean)

Come on it was crying out for it hehe.

Glad you posted the guide first jah - i was wondering how to describe the process!!:-D

What-ever it was Bitsey, I'm sure that it was stupid and untrue and, whoever the suspended person is, deserves more than a suspension for upsetting you. I will myself have a glance at the likiest suspects to see if one is suspended as I guess that 'name and shame' is not likely. :friends:

Nice work JB:thumbsup:


Stefor - the search 'engine' doesn't use the tags.!!!
They have no use as far as I can see.

I didn't discover this - someone else did ages ago but I can't remember who or in which thread... But thanks anyway :giggle:

They aren't useless, infact they would be pretty useful if only they could be searched and indexed in some way (supposedly its on admins list...) - they only way to 'search' for a tag at the moment is to add it to a thread and click on the link! :roll:

I haven't quite understood the 'search' bit of your last sentence.:oops:
I didn't mean that they are useless, just 'not used' but I remember now that I am wrong anyway. You can use them as a quick linking between threads tagged the same way. A tag of 'another rep thread' springs to mind.

What I mean is there should be a facility to either search tags, see tag clouds, see a A-Z list of tags and choose tags from a drop-down list when starting add one - but at present none of these exist, so the only way I can quickly see the, for example 'Tags' tag is by finding a thread where it has been added or manually adding it to a thread (where it might not be relevant)...

Its been said many times though in the past though, if it had been implemented from day 1 (particularly a drop-down list) tags would be better used but as is they have been come messy and pretty silly to be honest, almost pointless as you say :thumbsup:
