@Brandon9000,
Over on the left just enter it in the text box under "My Tags". You can do a comma separated list or add them one at a time.

Tagging is funny!

Yesterday, for the first time, I put a tag on a thread.

Now I'm laughing everytime I see that thread!

@FreeDuck,
That doesn't seem to work for me. At least, not when it's not my thread. Threads I've started are easy to tag. But when I try to add my tag in that box at the left, it never "takes." What am I doing wrong?

Give us some examples of your tags.

@dlowan,
Hey MA... when you add a tag to another thread - do you press the green + button...... then click on my tags and check it's there?

@Merry Andrew,
No, not really. I typed "instructions" in the box. I clicked the little (+) thingy. Under the box, the word "instructions" appeared in red. But that's the only place the word appears, not on the home-page, not in the copy of the thread in the "My Tags" sections. Isn't somebody supposed to be able see that word "instructions? Moi, par example?

@Merry Andrew,
Only the five most popular tags are displayed at any one time. So, if 6 tags have been added by 2 different people, only 5 will show. Any tag used more often will show (in the case of 6 tags, if the 2 people happened to type one tag in common, that one will definitely show), then it's whichever other 4 tags (I don't know if it's first in or if the thread starter gets preference or anything like that).

You can imagine this kind of scenario. Let's say there are 5 people who've tagged a topic. The # after each tag represents how often it was chosen:
food 5
cooking 3
pasta 1
rigatoni 2
italian food 5
pasta primavera 4
vegetarian 1

Here you can see that the following tags would definitely show up:
food
cooking
rigatoni
italian food
pasta primavera

However, if another person (a 6th person in this case) adds vegetarian, it'll have 2 uses so it has a chance of kicking out rigatoni, which was also used twice.

Does that make sense?

@jespah,
Is there a limit to how many of our own tags we can see when we click on "my tags"?

@ehBeth,
I don't know but I imagine if you get up into the thousands (and if everybody else does), it'll have to be limited in some fashion.

@jespah,
One complaint I have is that after a response or reply there is not a navigational arrow to return to the topic page.

So, as moderators, you are allowing things like "wingnut" and "h2o man is an asshole" and other bullshit tags to be more popular than "obama"?

I'm getting pretty sick of A2K, in fact it reminds me of Abuzz when it went to hell.
