We use hashtags wisely on the #openbook💬 of ~camp.
This means we use hashtags sparingly, and only when they indicate precisely what the post is about.
Do not use a new hashtag if there is an existing hashtag that you could use in it's place. You can browse pre-existing hashtags at the top of the search page. Only use a new hashtag after giving it some thought.
Keep in mind that a wiki page is automatically generated for every hashtag we use on here, so if you use a new hashtag be prepared to write the initial wiki page for it, to provide a worthwhile definition, and give the rest of us some guidance on how to use it. You can get to the wiki page by clicking the little word bubble just to the right of any hashtag.
To mention a hashtag without tagging your own post with it, use @ instead of #. This helps us stay organized by allowing us refer to a topic or operation without labeling our post as a part of the topic or operation. That way, when people search for a topic, casual mentions of the topic won't show up in the search results.
Finally, to help categorize posts for the human eye, the very last line of any post should be just 2 or 3 hashtags which most accurately describe the post, with the first hashtag being the broadest topic, and the last hashtag being the most specific to the post.
