Sorry, this is probably going to seem like an incredibly naive question but what is a tag? At the end of setting up a question or creating a topic there's an option for "Add Your Tags"; what is that supposed to be. I have no idea. In addition, asking a question doesn't seem to be an easy proposition. How about providing a space that says "Ask Question Here".

Not naive, just confused and bewildered by the forum oddness and strange design decisions, like almost everyone else.

The forum software is very poor and hard to use for newcomers or even folks that have been fighting it for years. The whole new post screen is confusing and many folks never even discovered how to access it, instead responding to a previous topic just so they can get their post up. This is much improved on the main page recently, thanks Sonos!

The closest Sonos can come to "Ask Question Here" is the light colored prompt in the Description block. Description... Geez, buy a thesaurus and look up a better word forum designer folks!

Tags are search terms that the forums use, stuff you put down there gets you into popular topics and the like, see under the search bar. I never use them and it seems like a lot of folks ignore them. This topic uses a tag for Spotify:
