Since the forums were relaunched there has been the option to ‘tag’ new posts with eight different topic areas.
Tagging is a great way to bring new people to the forums and to keep the level of support we offer consistently high.
To tag a post you simply click on one or more of the relevant tick boxes when you start a new topic.
This means posts can be filtered by users who are looking for specific information. Tagged topics can also be fed onto pages on the main website so people can see if, for example, there’s an interesting conversation about ‘Symptoms’ or ‘Treatments and therapies’ taking place.
Of particular importance is the tag for ‘Not MS’. When you start a general off-topic conversation please remember to tag your posts ‘Not MS’ so that these threads can be filtered out by users who are looking specifically for information related to MS.
