I can really understand if it is an "outhouse" tag for my posts. Yep! Really can.
I'll have to go look now.
Ah! I see now. Yep, as stated it is to help in searches. I looked at a tag close to this thread and it had HWH as a tag. This one has "tags" as a tag.
The moderator does not have to create them. I believe that the OP is the one that does it but not positive on that one. If you click on the word "tags" in the in the bottom of the thread, or on the tag itself in the listing of threads it will bring up all associated posts with the word "tags" in it.
Don't quote me on who creates them. A moderator should jump in soon and straighten out my outhouse.
Edited: See, I knew I was passing outhouse information. So my next question is, how are the tags generated automatically and what criteria is needed for the software to generate a tag, since not all threads have a tag?
Anxiously awaiting answer.
