DISCUSSION: Tips on Using LQ Tags

This thread is to discuss the article titled:
Tips on Using LQ Tags

LQ's Tag system is a really handy tool, but it's benefits can be neutered rather easily. I think a few tips are in order. 1. Keep your tags down to a bare minimum Right now, you can only see 15 of your tags. Any more than that are wasted. This limitation will be expanded at some future time, but, even then, if you have 100's of tags on various posts, finding the one you are looking for is more trouble than it's worth. Only tag posts to which you know you will be returning, and those which include explicit information regarding your subject of interest. 2. Choose meaningful tags

This explains why I could never reach 5 tags in another forum, each tag separated by a comma. I was using multiple-word phrases for tags and each word was being treated as a tag in spite of my not separating them with commas. I need to find the available tags because I am "not allowed to create new tags." That's what I'm here for, to learn how to use tags.
