note: tags  

We should get in the habit of using tags on our posts here.

It will make it easier to search for different topics.

Tags are really simple to create and use (though you should probably get the hang of other things first... and you can always go back and put them in after)

When you post you will see an input box at the bottom (below "mood") entitled "tags." Tags are a simple way of categorising your post. If you write a post about beer then you could tag it as "beer" or "drinking." Anyhow, you can put as many tags on a post as you want. What do tags do? Well, when you see a post with a tag on it you can click on the tag link. When you do that the screen will display only those posts with that tag. So if you have a bunch of posts tagged with "beer" and click on the tag then all the "beer" posts will be displayed. Think of it as a destructured forum.

LJ is odd that way. that's why i left in the first place, it's not just a simple mesaage forum.

It's easy enough to pick up though, and kinda fun to tinker around with stuff. That's how I learned most of my LJ stuff.
