Seems to be the case here, yes. No original thought, direct confrontation, feather-ruffling, petting of the collective fur in the wrong direction or deviating from mass sentiment allowed. Transgress at your own peril.

Now I will shut up and be a good boy for a while.

What are tags?
Tags are a useful way to search for threads with similar subject matter and content. This compliments the normal search system, which searches only for certain words or phrases and/or posts by specific users.
To use tags, you add words or phrases to threads to help describe the content. For instance, if the subject matter is 'photography' then you can add the tag 'photography' to the tag list. But you could also add tags like 'digital image', and 'camera' (depending, of course, on the nature of the thread).
This will categorize this thread with all other threads that have matching tags, whether or not they have the word 'photography' in them.


Who adds the tags?
Tags are initially added to threads by the user who started the thread. Other users may also be able to add and remove tags.

How do I use tags?
Tags are displayed in a box near the bottom of a thread page. Clicking on a tag will allow you to view other threads that have the same tag - and which may be related. Clicking on the word 'Tags' in the top of the box will take you to an overview page with a 'tag cloud.'
This cloud allows you to see which tags are the most popular - the larger the word, the more times it has been used on threads within the board. There is also another tag cloud on the advanced search page that shows you the tags that have been searched for (or clicked on) the most.
OK, I know this is an old thread, but another user mentioned tags on a different thread, and neither on that thread nor this do I see the link to click on to view the tag cloud. Am I missing the blazingly obvious? Have tags been discontinued? How about a screen shot that shows where the tag link is?

I need to start noticing the dates of these threads so I don't read through an entire thread only to realize that it was started years ago.

So? If you have not seen the thread before, then to you it should be good as new.

I often go to the library to check out DVDs. As I have not been to the theaters in years, nor watch much TV to know what the latest movies are, there are so many movies that I have not seen. So, these are good as new to me. And due to survivor bias, the ones that people are still watching tend to be the good ones. Really bad ones would not even get released on DVD, or the public library would not get them.
