***Administrative Advisement*** Re: Tags.....

It's been quite a while since this issue has come up, but, it has recently come up again. So I think it's time for a friendly reminder. Although not (yet) specifically mentioned in the guidelines, the tagging of discussions with your user name is something that we frown upon. Doing so creates a bias in the "you may also like" section on the side of the page. The list will show mostly, if not entirely, discussions posted by the member with that name, rather than posts of similar subject matter. As per the guidelines, tags should be relevant to the subject matter: Spammy, inappropriate or irrelevant tagging - Tagging your discussions, responses and comments is a great way to get more exposure for what you write! However, any tag you create should be on-topic. So please, refrain from doing this, and use tags properly. Thanks!

@thesupersingh You should also realize that tags determine what people see in the 'Interesting Discussions' list...if you don't tag a discussion, it will not show up in anyone's list, and if you use a tag no one else uses, it will not show up in anyone's list. Sure, they will show up in your own Interesting Discussions list...but not anyone else's list...
