Can I make a private slashtag that only I can see and use?

Yes. When you create a slashtag using the create slashtag form, choose the option on the bottom of the form to “Make this slashtag private. Only I can see and use it.” This will create a private slashtag that only you can see and use. You will need to be logged in to use this slashtag.

Once a slashtag is private, it cannot be made public. If you wish to make the slashtag public in the future, you will need to delete it and re-create it as a public slashtag.

    How can I make my private slashtag public once I created it and realized I want the world to know about my genius slashtag?

      Once a slashtag is created as private it can’t be switched to a public one. However, you can delete it and re-create it as a public slashtag. At the bottom of the slashtag page is a link to “show all urls/hosts as text.” Click on that and then copy all the URLs. Then delete the private slashtag, re-create it as a public slashtag and paste the URLs back into it.
