First off, as someone who has been around various forums for years - it feels wrong for me to be posting in a thread that is (as of now) 801 days old, but from what I understand that is not unusual around these parts.

I'm Stephanie. I signed up for hubski a few years back and have basically just lurked, as is my M.O. around the internet. I'm rather fond of Keifer, who introduced me to this site in the first place. I'm not much of a contributor, but I have certainly enjoyed the quality posts that people make and the resultant discussion (without the reddit-style shitposting everywhere).

It has taken me quite a while to understand the site layout, as it isn't particularly intuitive, even with the tutorial. Definitely still don't understand tags, but I suspect that will come with time.

You're not alone

tags are more like twitter hashtags than subreddits

They can be straight up categorical : #uspolitics

They can follow a specific thread of events : #whiterabbit

They can be shitposty: #weregretnothing

They can be subredditesque: #askhubski

There's no wrong way to tag.

You've been here longer than this welcome thread. I think you're fine. ;)

    Definitely still don't understand tags, but I suspect that will come with time.

Is it something in particular that you don't understand or the whole deal? I could try and explain either.

Hey, sgeorge. Not sure if a welcome is warranted after so long lurking, but welcome.
