I just recently started using tags here on BGG. Don't ask me why I avoided this windfall of awesome until now. I don't have a good answer. Nevertheless, I'm using it now and enjoying it for it's ability to filter and organize my collection.

I'd love to be able to use tags when viewing my collection. My first request would be to simply add "Tags" as a Column option. After that, I'd love to be able to have all of my tags available under the Filters options.

Thanks for considering.

It's not very obvious how to add tags, and it's held me back to use them.

In constrast: it's very easy to declare yourself a fan of a game, but I've no idea what purpose that serves. I've searched the wiki but there's no entry for 'Fan', which suggests there isn't much purpose.

I use the "wishlist comment" field to put "tag" for some of my games.

This way, when I'm in my collection view, I can search my tag by changing the search "Title" for "Wishlit comment", and I can filter my games.

Not perfect, but better than nothing.

Hope that it could help in some way.

That's a creative solution. I can see that being an adequate work around.

However, I hope to not have to take such measures. I'm simply asking BGG to use a feature they already have implemented.
