I can't seem to find any documentation on the mechanics of tagging a chat room.

  • What is the benefit of tagging a room? Based on how they're used in the Teachers' Lounge, I used to think it dictated what questions were fed into the room, but that's based on the room's feeds, not its tags. So what purpose does it have?

  • Any tag you specify shows up underneath the chat room name, and they link to the list of questions in that tag on the main site: is there a way to specify meta discussion site tags? meta-tag:foo doesn't seem to work, nor does foo (where foo is a meta-tag).

Certain tags may cause a link to the room to show up underneath various areas of the main site with that tag, for example at its main page /tags/foo, its wiki, and in questions that are tagged foo. I guess that's one benefit.

Is this the only thing that they are used for? I can't find any other documentation either. –  lnafziger Jan 19 at 23:25
