      Hi,

      Under the forum post text box there is a “topic tags” box. Is there some kind of system or standard set of ones to use? I’m not sure what to put in, or what would be best, and I don’t want to put in “lithium” when the system or community only finds “Lithium” to be helpful. Is this written down somewhere or does it not matter?

      Great Point.
      I have no idea what they mean. I’ve been active on this site for a year. At first, when I asked a question, or responded to a question-maybe both-I tried to fill out the “topic tags”. I think I stopped doing that when I realized that no matter what tags I put on a posting, I couldn’t see a difference as to where/how that posting showed up.
      I made a guess that they were there for the editor(s)-to help in sorting out where postings might be relevant in different discussions. Poor grammar there, but…maybe you get my point.
      Basically, I’m curious as to the answer to your question also, just not as curious
      as you are!

      Tags on forums are normally used when searching for topics ? Correct me if I’m wrong. Mind you, I bet most people put #ADHD

      The tags field is open to anything — there’s no set list. It helps when people are searching for a discussion on a topic.
