    These could be used to help organize and search for threads through the forum, I'm thinking...

    I have the option to edit the tags on this thread.... I don't see a way to edit old threads to add tags to them, though. Possibly the option only appears if a tag used in the original post?

    And that would be helpful; hard to say if we'll know what tags to sort a thing with until it's been in use a while.


    eta: They can be added!

    I didn't see the option before, so I assume so! And it's def a new sort of feature, the kind of thing I'd expect from an update.

    the mods might be able to tag pre-update threads.

    Oh hey, yeah! If they can, then reporting the top post to say "could the tag 'tag' be added to this" would (presumably) be quick and easy. And then the op can edit to add more relevant ones, and get rid of the one that just says tag. So that's one possibility.

    I'm glad to have that as a likely option.

    Alas, brainbugs; I'm also doing the "but nooooo anxiety says we can't ask more things of the mods, they do too much already, is there some way to give us the ability to add them to our threads so they don't need to go through the reports?" thing.

    well, you can ask them that first, and then if they can't do that, ask them if they can tag the threads. which might total out asking more things of them if the answer to the first question is no, but would reduce work for them if the answer is yes. and this is less urgent than getting our subs back was, so i reckon that'll put less pressure on the mods, will make it less stressful for them.

    :O!!!!

    yeah it was a my device thing; I can add tags to older posts on the computer, but not on the mobile devices. That's good enough for me! 8D

    Ooh, there's plenty of uses for this! content warnings, tags for if advice/help is wanted or not, any other important notes people want!
