Wink Tags and the problem.

I have seen this on every story. Some of you may not know the use of tags, so for those of you who don't I will explain.

When a thread is made you can add a tag to it, however, tags aren't for fun. They are designed to help you find the thread when you search for it in the search tab above. If the tags are saying things like Monica rocks!! Or peace out home dog and don't even relate to the thread how are people going to find the thread when they search?

I'm not saying that making tags is wrong, but as the author of the thread you should try and make a tag which bests describes your thread. It will be helpful for others in time of reference.

Dixiecup post this on my thread, so now that you've heard it from a mod make sure you watch your tags!
Quote:
Good thread about what tags are for and how they can be abused...by the way, just as with any other thread, as a Moderator, I KNOW who has placed every tag. So, please be careful what you write in the tags. You can be 'zinged' just as easily with a tag as you can with a bad or abusive post.
If your going to do as WebberLily says:
Quote:
This happens when readers of the thread want to be able to come back to (usually) a series of threads without subscribing to them. So Monica (your example) will put her name as a tag in these threads. As long as the tag is polite, this is simply another way of keeping track of threads that you are interested in.
I suggest saying something like interesting or helpful thread on a thread you will want to come back to and great story or something on a story thread you find interesting to keep your tags within means so that you won't be getting in trouble for abuse to tags!

i agree Jacie...sometimes people will put random things as a tag....thats not going to help someone find a thread! like on the JB threads...all of my tags have like a jobro name in it or something...like "kevin rox my sox"...its a kevin jonas club...so say something about kevin! haha...just my opinion. xD

Yes thank you both! Your points are good, I don't mind if they want to find it, but the author of the thread should make a tag helpings others who didn't make a tag find the thread.

I think it's really annoying. If "monica" wanted to see her post, she could just go to "my posts"!

Yes exactly! It's of no use but to "Monica."

Well true, but unless that person is posting a lot they can still view their post.
