Smile Tags- Use them! Learn how!

One thing here I like are tags. The little thing at the bottom of the thread that you can make to relate threads? You know, right? OK, good. What has come to my attention is that People do one of these four things
♥ Make tags just to make tags * Coolio
♥ Have no idea what tags are and never use them.
♥ Have heard of tags and seen them, but never use them, or use them every once in a while.
♥ Know exactly what tags are, and use them all the time as a help to .

So to make good tags, go to the bottom of the post, Click EDIT TAGS. Put something that you can use again , but not too broad or narrow a topic. EXAMPLE- Which is a good tag?
A Problem
B Curio Shop Issue
C OMG I can't see Arte and he won't talk and I must go gem hunting today and I can't not because I'm so close to getting the Crown!

OK it's B

One I use a lot is POTM Problems. If you edit tags like that, people can click, relate, and will be a better place! This is to help others, which is great! If you want, try tagging this thread!

I agree.
A lot of people use the tags as a game now, putting 'OMG I got a tag!' and stuff like that. Barley anyone uses them correctly.
Sure, on the DCT or GE's it's fine to have a little fun, but putting 'LOL HI!' on an important question is just immature.

Ok, I added a tag to this page, first time using tags, now what does that do? I usually go to subscribed threads to try to find a place I posted and would like to check and see if there is followup. More information about tags would be great!!

Ok I definitley agree with both of you!

When I started WI I didn't really even know what tags really did. I just thought they kind of...sat there! So I started using them, and yes I was one of those members who put, "HEHE! I got a TAG!!"

I'm very sorry now and see that tags are a really important thing on ! They help people with problems that relate to mine.

Oh and yes on the DCT or GE's it's deffnitley fun! I haven't put any on GE's yet though!

Near the top of the page is a dropdown labeled Search. There's an option to "Tag Search".

A Tag is basically like a little link to helpful threads!

For instance- one of mine was at a contests and it said "lucky3900 signed up"
When you click on my tag it brings up all the threads with that tag. It's very helpful when your trying to solve problems such as the "Curio Shop Issues" example.

If you clicked "Curio Shop Issues" you would fnd a bunch of threads with that tag. Then you can compare what other members think. That's why tag's should be used properly and not "lol hehe!"

There's a time and place for everything. Sillyness with tags is for the DCT and other places maybe that I'm not aware of, but the tag system is to help.

So what you are saying is that you can click on the words in the tags area, and those words will take you to threads with related information. I will try that on another thread.
