Do you think tags should be mandatory in this section? If a user was looking for something for a specific OS or a specific mod (eg ExplorerFrame, VS, IE, etc) coming to this section now just seems unorganized. Not to mention if someone joins and is new to customizing Windows there's a possibility that they might think they had downloaded a theme for X when it actually was for Y.

What do you think?

Well, I voted no. People should be encouraged to create meaningful titles, but if they can't, then yes, [TAGS] should be mandatory.

I think so yes. It's far easier to scan through the tags at the beginning of each title than reading each one and then working out what it's supposed to be.

I thought clear tags were just proper for anything not just this particular section however Yes i would prefer them to be manditory. Makes everything look better and easier to understand :p

Well, I voted no yes. People should be encouraged to create meaningful titles, but if they can't, then yes, together with the [TAGS], which should be mandatory.

Yes. It would be really cool if we could search by tag.

Tags increase searchability. Meaningful titles, not as much.

Yes, it organises a thread, keep stuff clean and makes everything nicer in general.

Please, if theres no bad reasons about it then why not have it?

i thought they already were mandatory.

but other then that mostly they are in the post itself, if somebody is not going to read it in the post, doubtful they are going to pay attention to it in the subject
