§ OVERview: This forum SOFTware uses Topic tags to GROUP Topics which have the SAME tags.
§ INFORMation: When a tag is CLICKed, the forum will SEARCH the DATAbase to find MATCHes of that tag on OTHER Topics and SHOW the RESULTs.
§ USage: ● On the “Create New Topic” web-page, in the “Tags” section,
● In your Topic, under the “Started by”, click the PLUS button,
INput the text.
When there are MANY pieces of text TO be ENTERed, USE TWO commas to SEPARATE the text.
§ NOTEs: 1. When MANY tags are INputted using this method, the forum will REcord it as a SINGLE tag — to FIX this, click the “Save” button Again
2. IF the text INcludes a comma, the forum will RE-move it — RE-place the comma with a SPACE
3. The forum will CONVERT the characters to LOWer case when saved
4. BASIC tags for a Topic:
a. File HOST
└ IGNORE the DEfault Topic PRE-fix tags when creating a Topic — it is OUT-dated
└ IF the DOWNload URLs ALL use the SAME file host — USE that file host as the Topic tag pre-fix
└ Use the domain of the file host, EXclude the “.com”
└ IF the file(s) are hosted on MULTIPLE hosts — use “multi” as the Topic tag pre-fix, include the INDIVIDUal hosts as separate tags
b. OFFICial content name
└ REfer to Wikipedia
└ IF it can NOT be found on Wikipedia — use GameFAQs
└ IF the content is part of a SERIES — one tag will be the BASE series name and AN-other for the SUB-title/REST of the NAMEd title
└ IF the title has a NUMBER/ROMAN NUMERal — ignore it
└ IF the content is a RE-boot/RE-imagining/RE-make — do NOT include the year it was released

└ OMIT the word “edition” from the tag
