Hi, myLotters! Do you put "tags" every after your posts? I do. But I have no idea the importance or the relevance of putting discussion tags. Can you enlighten me? Is there a myLot guidelines on tagging?

the tags really help us find discussions so we will no post duplicatesand get our discussions deleted so it really does help and I try to do this as much as I can,.if there are a lot of tags I will not bother though as we can find them by the other tags too,.

Wow, your rating rating is very high. How long have you been in myLot? I never use the search before I post a discussion, so I have no idea if I am duplicating. I wonder if this post will be deleted considering that this is so basic.

Not necessarily zazen because it is informative and as our Admin has said that if it is not a guideline violation he prefers many of us willing members help out and explain. Mrs. Hatley is our Number one Top User! She has been a member for 4 wonderful years. She is quite an inspiration to all of us as she loves myLot today like she has from day one. Therefore, when she responds it is very wise for all of us to listen as she has seen it all, done it all and knows it all. Though being here 4 years you can see she is always willing to help anyone! You can see her here that she is the number one user in the history of myLot and we want to always be proud of that fact as she is not just the top user but a truly wonderful, caring and great friend: http://www.mylot.com/w/topusers/1.aspx

I didn't know that Hatley is a Mrs. and that she is the Top User! It really seems that you have a family here, you already know each other. Are you one of the Admins Ms. (since your avatar is a cute girl) Hardworkinggurl?

Did you see that column over there? -- Those are topics with the same tags as this one. They have all received recent activity, the most recent at the top, and one of them might be yours, if you tagged it correctly. Welcome to myLot!

I didn't realized that there are topics on the right side of the page. I love asking myLot related questions because I usually get more relevant times.

Hi zazen I have a habit of putting tag whenever i save a comment because it helps in searching these discussions. like if someone put the tag "enjoy" in a particular tag and if anyone searches for enjoy related subject on search engine then all discussions for which someone put enjoy tag will open.

I always put in the tags. They are very important so when people do a search for interests your answer/topic/etc. will show up and then has a chance of having others answer all or most of your topics. When you don't tag your discussion they will not show up when they do a search, etc. So therefore, you see it is important to tag ALL discussions. Have a great day and happy myLotting!!!
