How do you tag your response?

Have you noticed that every time you make a response or a comment to a discussion, you are asked for tags? I think you noticed it. But how do you give tags in that situation? You type something related to your post especially, something like 'me too'? Or you know that you have to tag for that discussion (not for your response) and give some words which are general for the whole discussion?

I don't know if I am doing it the correct way, but when the box comes up saying 'Tag this discussion', I usually type the name of the discussion into it. Like I am going to tag this one 'How do you tag your response'. That is how I have always done it.

Yours is an excellent way!!:) But I would suggest you to type some of the words only, not the whole name. 'tag' and 'response' is enough;) But it's your choice of course:) Thanks for your beautiful reply!!

Hey alexandria its not the correct way to tag.The main purpose of tagging is to help people find the relevant matter.but if you type the whole thing in it then i don't think any body will search for some thing putting the whole question in tag field.Suppose now i am answering your reply if i need to tag i will tag it using the words "discussion,Tag".

i never think of what tags i am going to use.I just write down my post and then when it asks to tag the post i just take out some key words from the matter which i have written and make them as tags.

I too don't think about tags for my response. When it asks, I give a word from original post, or mostly skip the stage:) Thank you for replying me ^^

tag can help a lot to collect people in one topic - thus we need to make it complete and connected
yes dear we have to tag. its one of the very best thing to assure... i love to tag.. you asked how.. example there is a discussion of: "my boyfriend is cheating on me, i hate him"then here goes your reply etc.... post response.. then tag.. to tag that example discussion i have given you, these are the probability of connection boyfriend, cheat, cheater, pain, womanizer, emotional, cope up, move on, angry, selfish (with the limit of 10 tags in rules) those are most likely your tags for that post.. anything relevant in able to put the discussion and response in category.. so it can be grouped to similarities and to the same area.. in this links will be possible. and the system will automatically search all the related word or phrase to through the help of the tags we have given.. is this clear to you dear? ok.. take care^_^

I'm sorry my subject is not so clear:( Suppose I respond " yes my boyfriend too cheats me, I hate him. I hate his cat too!" And give tags 'cat, too, yes' will that be ok. I just want to clear my doubts, so please don't get upset and tell me :$ thanks for the reply:)

Well, usually you respond to a discussion addressing the subject of the discussion, giving your opinion or extra information. When you are done and the tag window comes up you can put as many tags as you like, separated by commas. These tags should relate to the subject of the discussion. For instance when I am done with this response I will put "tags for discussions" in the tag window.

Thanks for the reply:) I know the tag system.... but I was asking about the personal use of tags. I saw some discussion related to donation's worth (something like that). A user responded and gave tag 'me too'. This tag had no relevancy to original discussion, but to that particular response only and didn't help in finding that discussion....

I usually choose words that are relevant to the topic of discussion that I have responded.

yes, that's the right way in my opinion. I too try to tag according to the discussion. Thanks for replying:)
