What are the criteria for what tag would be added to what post? Give us an example.
The advantage of tags is their flexibility. A topic can only exist in one forum, even though it might be suitable in multiple forums. But you can assign as many tags as you like.
Or perhaps you might want a way to differentiate posts without creating a subforum. I might have 'for sale' and 'wanted' topics listed together for visibility, and there aren't enough topics to warrant a subforum. But maybe later the forum gets much busier, and I'll need a way to filter the topics.
Or maybe I just want some sort of temporary label, to assist with organising and topics and shuffling forums.
That's just off the top of my head. User will probably find various applications. Tags are quite common these days for sorting anything from photos to files/folders, to social media posts.
