Tags are a useful way to search for threads with similar subject matter and content. This complements the normal search system, which searches only for certain words or phrases and/or posts by specific users. Tagging your post helps others find your thread or specific post.

People also have taken to using them to make quick comments when they don't feel a completely seperate post is necessary. ;-)

To use tags, you add words or phrases to threads to help describe the content. For instance, if the subject matter is 'PlayStation Home Estates' then you can add the tag 'PlayStation Home Estates' to the tag list. But you could also add tags like 'PSHome Estate', and '' (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 'Home Estates' in them.
