It's pretty often you come across a topic, and within the first page someone has pointed out the similarity to other posts. Sometimes a topic is started with "Not sure if someone has posted this".

I figure it may be beneficial to give members the option to "Tag" topics or posts.

I don't know how hard this is as an ad on to the current system, but it could be done in a few different ways.

  • Start out with a few categories: Troubleshooting, Repair, Guide, Tips/Pointers, Custom-Insert here, Poll/Vote
This is a short list, I'm sure others can think of some to ad. The OP of the topic can select tags upon creating the topic, that they feel suite the material.

  • Same idea, but in this instance other members can then tag a topic or post how they see fit.
I would say OP could still have the option, but this allows other users to do so in their place should they not utilize the function.


Personally I favor the option where any user can "Custom". Over time the more people that start to tag certain topics or posts, it will give a wider range of words to search for and hopefully provide a more targeted search overall. Not sure of a potential downside, yet to allowing anyone and everyone to create Tags, but if we wanted to select a certain group to do this, they could get a fancy Badge.

This could also be a nice way of finding older responses, by maybe using Custom- Hell freeze if you want to know about BTCT and KYC.
