    Yeah, one thing for sure is that it's a Tag no one else will be using! I learned a lot about searching for stuff in 20 years online and I have a lot of patience. Every little bit helps! I also bookmark the things most important to me.

    As an example, I put potlatch into the search box at the top of the page; 13 of my threads here;

    https://thepoliticsforums.com/search...500&pp=&page=2

    You will also get threads you posted in, but - If you put fortis, (and a keyword) it will narrow it down.

    Trinnity's thread;
    Please Tag your Threads


    PLEASE TAG your THREADS
    I tried that and the answer I got was, "sorry no matches"

    What did you put in that showed no match? Did you put your name in?

    The searcher would then have to search the exact words, right? If I use the phrase "autonomous cars" they wouldn't find it if they just searched "cars". Is that correct?

    I think I found it now. I tried it yesterday but it was the wrong search location. It's the "Advanced Search" at the top of this page, right?

    I searched "please tag your threads"

    I thought it was a requirement that if you didn't do it you were breaking forum rules. It's optional? I generally don't care about my old threads either.

    I think the limit is 15 tags.
    Someone else said you have to tag a new thread before it's posted.

    Check posts #11 and #13 for the link to that thread
    I posted it and then Trinnity did too. That's her original thread about Tags

    I just use the box [not advanced] in the upper right to put tags in. That thread should have shown up, but sometimes there are a lot of results you have to dig through.
