Tags to clarify a topic as 'discussion' or 'on-topic-only'

This site uses tags and tags can be created by users with Trust Level 3. (Users in group - Trust Level 3)

Two new tags discussion and on-topic-only have been created.

To help in administering certain topics so that if they go off topic, it can be politely noted that the topic is tagged on-topic-only.

Adding a tag is simple, when you create the topic just select the tag from the list provided, start typing the tag, or create a tag (TL3). Also the current limit is 5 tags per topic, but that can be changed.

To see all the tags, just click the hamburger image in the upper right and select tags:
