Let's talk about what tags we should be using and how they should be used. For those of you who haven't yet read it here is the doc page on tags.
Here's what I'm looking at so far:
Talk: I removed the
conversation tags from the topics in ~talk in accordance with "Don't add a tag that's the same or very similar to the group that you're posting in." If you're in ~talk of course you're having a discussion or conversation. (There are exceptions that are about conversation such as "How do you discuss open minded topics with close minded people?"). I tagged some "How was your weekend" type topics with
What do you think about
discussion tags in other groups?
Question: As I understand it,
question should be
ask Update: done
Meta: I would define
meta as topics about the site or ~ the topic is posted in. Since ~tildes is entirely meta,
meta is redundant here. Most of the
meta topics elsewhere are about the ~ they are in. As an example of something I think is mistagged, I wouldn't tag the ~lgbt introduction topic
meta since it isn't about the ~ . Update: removed
meta from ~tildes topics.
I wanted to get some feedback before I continue so I don't make a mistake unilaterally retagging something that I shouldn't.
What are your thoughts on these tags? What other tags do we need to talk about? What strategies are you using for tagging and retagging?
