    Apparently they are "tags" with various labels on them. What they do exactly, I'm not sure!

    On this board, that's like saying "Some longhair, I suppose."

    When a thread has a tag, you see it (or them) at the almost end of the thread page. You can click on it to see other threads with the same tag.

    I wanted to show an example, but at this moment I couldn't find a tag that is used more than once. When it is used more often, I guess it will be very handy.

    Edit: I just saw one : Tag Jojoba

If you come across a particularly useful, informative, or fun thread, go ahead and rate it a five! If the thread stinks, well, rate it accordingly. If you just don't care, don't sweat it! Don't rate it at all!

    Using this tool is quick and the benefits run long. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to locate all of the most useful threads on one page? Well, because you can sort the forum threads by rating, you can corral these nuggets of gold all into the same place and read until you're cross-eyed.

    Just a thought. Whether we all wind up using it regularly or not doesn't really matter, but I wanted you all to know about it.

    Have fun!

    Ooooo, thanks for this.
    Is there some type of backlog for ratings, like... can we access the threads we have rated through our userpage somehow? Or is it just for search functions?

    This would be a great feature! There are so many topics on this forum and it would be awesome to be able to look at my profile and see which ones I had rated highly to get to them quickly. Any way that that might be on the way??

    The thread rating feature has recently been disabled because it wasn't working out the way it was intended. I doubt that the extension you suggest will be forthcoming, LovelyGoddess.
