People just like to be funny + cute with them. It's their way of leaving a mark on a thread since if you just left a post or something, people wouldn't see it once there are enough posts for a new page. It has a real purpose that some people have been explaining to you about using it to search or keep track of threads, but when people just leave nonsense to leave it then it's kinda like why people do graffiti in real life ... it's inane but still prevalent

A tag is helpful if you think you might want to go back and search through threads. For example, if I go to a thread that I think I might want to visit again, I can tag it. Later, when I do a search using the words I placed as a tag, I can find any of the threads I visited and put a tag on.

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. why cant one just search for threads using the thread search option? what ADVANTAGE is a tag search over a thread search? that is what i am wondering after everyones fine explanation of tags. i never understood them either. so i thank all of you for explaining. now i know way more about them then before! but id still like to know why someone would do a tag search over a thread , keyword, or post search. like, maybe is it faster????????????????

thanks!

Default Re: TAGS????? Please explain these to me

For example, I used to mark useful threads w/ "sno bear was here"

That way when I want to say, read a certain "how to" I remember liking, I can just search for it using the tag I left on that thread, instead of having to remember a key word in that thread. Like if it was about gardening but maybe it was called a title that didn't use the word garden in it (like, click here to learn how to make lots of kinzcash), otherwise it would be hard to find (would find any thread with the word garden in it if I tried searching that way). I always have a hard time w/ search options too.

It's also another option if you don't like using the subscribing to threads and assigning folders to them. This way your subscribed threads can be kept clean !

Hope this makes better sense

Only thing with tags ... you can't click on the title of threads you have tagged otherwise it will just take you the main forum page. You have to click on this Click the image to open in full size. next to the thread title

BASMAT - Rep points to you too for being on my side of things and puching until we got the answer we understood! It'ss great not being the only one who wasn't"getting" the purpose!
I think sometimes I overthink things, but this was really bugging me.

I've read what eveyone said and I think I understand, but yet I don't get it.

If there was no tags at all, would it make a difference?

Nope, it really would not. We went for a very long period without tags and it really didn't make much of a difference. They are really not used properly, so they almost have no purpose.


Edit/Add: Sorry, I did not realize the second page of responses.

Thanks Lilypad, that's good to know. I was worried I was missing something. Knowing how it's used and the fact that it isn't a necessary item makes it easier for me.
