The forum categories as they’re set up are pretty broad, so it’s still fairly easy for a post to get lost. Luckily, hashtags are here to help posts get found!
Hashtags start with a hash or pound sign ( # ), and can be any combination of letters, numbers and the underscore ( _ ) character. Adding relevant hashtags to your posts can make it easier for folks to find the information they are looking for. They can be added anywhere in your post, and become hyperlinks that people can follow to find other posts with the same tag.
Because hashtags can be pretty much anything you want, it can help to have some conventions in place to make things a little easier to find. Below are some suggestions:

Ignore spaces. Credit union, becomes #creditunion
Try to avoid unofficial/non-mainstream abbreviations or acronyms.
