tags in direct messages

when I try to add a tag to a private message I get this error message: “There was an error tagging the topic.”

Never tried this before, but I don’t get why would you need to tag a Pvt message :thinking:

yeah, I did it as a joke and it did not work - but then I came up with a reason for why it might be a good idea:
you can use the site wide search function also for direct messages - and they might even show up in the tag list once you are logged in - so I could ask you: wanna play this and that tourney together - add the tag, and then easily find the message again

I see Markus, it would be a useful feature…

I’m digging into Meta (not the Zuckerberg shit, but the official Discourse support forum…) and I found that they implemented this in 2.0: Allow staff to tag PMs.

Still trying to understand how to enable it…

Found, and enabled!
But it works just for staff members…

ok, weird that only the staff can use this feature - but thanks for digging and enabling!
