Have they been there for a while, or is part of today's update?
First time I've noticed them
Nope. Not seen them before.
What do they do?
They are keywords from your post. You create the tags when you start a new thread. If you click on the tag then it will list all of the posts that have the same keyword. As they have not been around for very long then a search of my two keywords only brings up my original post. You cannot add tags to a reply to a post though.
Once tags are used more then the search will become more useful - most likely in forums where the same query keeps popping up.
@marlin I knew you'd know.
It's all very slow today!
Tags in, points out.
(Not that anyone knows what points are for, or why the go up and down).
D'oh!! I didn't notice either change!!
Would it not be sensible for a moderator to maybe start a fixed thread stating what tags are for?
Otherwise eejits like me will abuse them...
