Please add tags to your posts

It's great to see so much of activity on the site. Members are posting photos, videos, discussions, blogs and event notifications. However not everyone is tagging these posts.

Tagging any post with keywords helps others search for data on the site easily and quickly rather than manually browsing through hundreds of postings. So please try and add tags to all your posts :) It'll improve the overall site experience.

Cheers! Hope everyone had a cracking Diwali!! :)
