I was wondering just now what are tags for and how do you add them? Thanks!

Tags are a list of words that you can add to a thread. When someone searches for a thread, and the tag matches the word you searched for, they will pop-up.

There are two types of tags:
Good Tags - Tags that are related to the topic. Like 'WI gem hunt, gem hunt'
Bad Tags - Tags that are random 'twilight roxs!, pokemon2 was here'

To add a tag to a thread, you press the edit tags button on the tag tab. The tag tab is right above the 'Quick Reply'. Press the 'Edit Tags' link at the right of the bar. It looks like this:
Click the image to open in full size.

Then you can enter two tags. The tags are separated by a comma or ~,~ (without the ~~). They together can only be 25 characters (letters and numbers):
Click the image to open in full size.

Then press 'Save Changes' to save them.

To use tags, you add words or phrases to threads to help describe the content. For instance, if the subject matter is 'photography' then you can add the tag 'photography' to the tag list. But you could also add tags like 'digital image', and 'camera' (depending, of course, on the nature of the thread).
This will categorize this thread with all other threads that have matching tags, whether or not they have the word 'photography' in them.
Who adds the tags?
Tags are initially added to threads by the user who started the thread. Other users may also be able to add and remove tags.
How do I use tags?
Tags are displayed in a box near the bottom of a thread page. Clicking on a tag will allow you to view other threads that have the same tag - and which may be related. Clicking on the word 'Tags' in the top of the box will take you to an overview page with a 'tag cloud.'
This cloud allows you to see which tags are the most popular - the larger the word, the more times it has been used on threads within the board. There is also another tag cloud on the advanced search page that shows you the tags that have been searched for (or clicked on) the most.

They are supposed to be used to locate threads, like a good tag for this thread would be "tags" and "help", but most people just put random stuff...

At the bottom of a thread it says "Edit Tags" click that, type your tag, and click "Add Tag"

Tags are used to help people locate threads. For example, if you or another WI member
wanted to remember a thread they visited they could add a tag to that specific thread.
There are two different types of tags, good and bad. Good tags would mean that the tag is related to the topic, for example the tag could say 'What are tags?' Bad tags on the other hand, would say something that is not related to the topic like 'Midnights Bliss was here'
To add tags, scroll down to the bottom of a thread, and you should see this:

Click the image to open in full size.

Look to the right of that and you should see 'Edit Tags' click then this should appear:

Click the image to open in full size.

Click inside of the empty white box, and type the text you wish to appear as your tag and then click 'Save Changes.'

Hi there,
I took a screenshot from the FAQ explaining what tags are. I'm sure this should help you out. But, if you're still confused, the answers above pretty much covered it also.
