    Welcome, Shemya. You can join in any conversation that interests you. Tags are topics or categories. You probably won't have much to do with tags right away. Post any question you have related to how the forum works and someone will answer it as soon as it is seen.

    Hi Shemya!

    Welcome aboard - no pun intended!

    If you have any specific problems / questions, just ask any of the staff (or you can even ask the question here in this thread).

    Tags are key words that you can - but don't have to - assign to a thread/discussion you're starting.
    That way, if anybody uses the search facility to find information on a specific topic, it's easy to find the threads / discussions that deal with that topic.

    If you want to add tags, you just type them in, and separate them with a comma. E.g., if you'd want to start a thread on aliens bodies recovered at Roswell, you could add the following tags: Roswell, alien bodies
