    Have you ever come across a thread where you just can't help the user, or don't know the answer to the question? Well, this is a suggestion to help those threads get answered faster.

    If you don't know the answer to the question, or are unable to help the thread creator, before leaving that thread, add a few tags to the thread! Users can add up 2 tags to threads they do not create, so why not do your part?

    You might not be helping the user directly, but through tagging the thread, you'll be helping them indirectly, and they might receive a quicker response from other users because you did so

    Just a thought.

    If you're too stubborn to read what I posted above:

    Basically, tag every thread before you are finished reading it, so it'll help the thread creator receive a faster response!

    The only problem with this is that some idiots will add stupid, inappropriate tags on some threads.

    Yes, I understand that some immature people add inappropriate tags to threads, although this can also be a good way to help threads get noticed, and a way to help indirectly if you can't help them with their actual thread.

    Good idea, but I agree with the idiotic tagging part

    Yeah, it's the immature ones who ruin it all, we saw it with the reputation system.

    Agreed. I will try to tag some threads though! I don't think I ever did one...?
