Lets discuss tags, again

There's been some discussion around tags since users were given tag-editing privileges, such as Tag Use and Article Tags

I've noticed a few things about tags and rather than make a topic for each one I thought I'd make a few top level comments instead, hopefully with others doing the same for anything tag related they'd like to see discussed.

    Some people have been adding tags that seem questionable, such as grandstanding (removed) and rant (not removed) Should these be acceptable tags?

      I would just like to point out, I did not mean "grandstanding" in a negative way, in my opinion that's what that post is and I see no difference in tagging it as that over "rant". But if "rant" is the more widely accepted vernacular I get that. I was not meaning it to be offensive.

      As other have stated, rant is not necessarily a negative adjective.

      I added the tag to a topic that was criticising some Reddit things and honestly "critique" wasn't sitting right with me because a critique is something you make to the direct criticised entity.

      If you do it somewhere else, it's a rant in my book.

      And again, it is not negative, it's just a more colloquial term than "complain".

      I wonder if its worth thinking about some kind of automatic system/AI that shows you commonly used variables of your tag on Tilde while you're typing it, so you can add the others?

        Adding autocomplete based on existing tags will also go a long way to discovery and encouraging standardization.

        Having a game tag in ~games goes back to the redundant tags comment I made elsewhere.

        I think I changed it because there are some issues and strange behavior still with the hierarchical tags.

        Specifically, if you filter "ask", it won't filter out any hierarchical versions like "ask.survey" or "ask.recommendations". I know that getting rid of the "ask" posts was one of the main reasons people wanted filters in the first place, so I didn't want to ruin that. That needs to be fixed fairly soon though, so tags can be used more properly.

      I can see benefits and drawbacks of having tags for the length of articles.

      Benefits would be because not everyone has time to read a long article and it could be useful to know that it's going to be a time commitment before opening the page.

      Some drawbacks that come to mind is that length can be arbitrary and entirely dependent on the OPs opinion, and I don't think that's a very useful tag if that's the case. Another consequence it could have is that it can encourage laziness or the posting of lower quality articles if it becomes popular to filter out posts with a long read tag.

      I don't have any actual evidence for the latter fear, so it might not be as big a deal as I'm making it seem.

      I think this would be the same scenario as an article tag, which Deimos commented on here. When advanced link scraping is implemented, article length is probably something could be automatically detected.

      I guess the obvious way it would be helpful is if someone only has a bit of time to read something. The downside is if people start filtering it out in favour of shorter, potentially low quality articles.

      I personally like tagging the publication/source and make it a habit to do so. "The Atlantic" is the name of the publication, if it were to just be tagged "Atlantic" then that would refer to the region/ocean. That way if you want to see all topics posted from a specific publication you can.

      I usually use the abbreviated name of publications when tagging them (NPR, CNN, BBC, CSM, ect ect) but it's kinda hard when the publication does not have an abbreviated name.

      Although I do agree with the point you are making.

          That said, in some cases even though a shorter form is available it is either ambiguous or not used much. For instance league of legends is commonly known as league, but league could very well be ambiguous in regards to esports or regular sports. Its acronym lol is perhaps less ambiguous despite being a common acronym simply because "laugh out loud" would unlikely be an appropriate tag but what do you do about some other name, perhaps another game, that also shares the acronym lol? who gets priority?

            As a simpler example, consider something like "strategy" in a game group. You shouldn't need to tag every post in the League of Legends group as "lol strategy" so that it doesn't conflict with the "strategy" posts in the Dota2 one. It's fine to have the same tag used in different places and the context come from the group (and searching and other functions should help handle this when they're more developed).

        I was conflicted too, on one hand tech is redundant, yet tech.support could be a valid group and thus using a tag that matches it would appear to be more correct. I'm super in favour of tags matching potential group names.

        support on its own is too ambiguous when looked at site-wide, but not when it's confined to ~tech. Should that ambiguity be allowed?

          Speaking as a person of entirely no consequence or authority, tech.support seems more intuitive than just putting support, when you're posting with the idea of 'tech support' in mind.

          I think tech.support is the more appropriate tag in this case, if in the future it's made into a group the tag can help in moving old posts there.

      I had used meta on one or two topics in ~tildes, because I had felt that there ought to be a distinction between topics that involve the sites' functionality and those that involve the sites' functionality. You are right though, 'meta' as a tag in ~tildes is redundant -- a 'community' tag might be more suited to that purpose.

        community and site design would divide things up nicely.

      It's not always clear though, and also won't really matter much a lot of the time, as long as it's consistent. Eventually it may even be simplest to just have "tag synonyms" where either works the same.

        In that case, should we assume that tags should try to be as "group-name" friendly as possible? For instance, tech.support, games.recommendations, games.dev. What should the tag be in the meantime...

        In that case, should we assume that tags should try to be as "group-name" friendly as possible?

        For instance, tech.support, games.recommendations, games.dev. What should the tag be in the meantime within those groups, given that tech.support in ~tech makes the parent tag redundant, or games.dev in ~games? use the full hierarchy anyway?

          I think it's good to aim that way when it's reasonable, but don't worry too much about it. I can always bulk-convert tags when creating new groups if needed.

      We need a way to leave notes explaining the actions we take. I'm thinking a meta page for each topic like wikipedia's talk page, where we can discuss what mod actions the topic needs.

        I'm just trying to get some discussion going with examples, doesn't necessarily mean the examples are good/bad :)

        trial makes more sense to me as a standalone tag and is more intuitive, but trials makes more sense as a subgroup like ~news.trials like the docs say

        It can feel wrong to use a plural for a topic about the singular but it does seem to be the preferred way so probably best to stick to it.

      The latest one uses challenge.programming, how do you feel about that?

          perhaps a way of tagging all challenges site-wide even from within their respective groups, like challenges.pixelart in ~creative for drawing some specific thing.

              Even if the rest of the structure wasn't used in the same way, standardizing the top-level "challenge" tag wouldn't be hard.

    Ok so I have a question about the way this post is tagged.

    Among other tags it has: law, copyright, copyright law
    Does it make sense to change that to just law.copyright

      Looking through the existing topics with those tags, law.copyright would make sense to me personally.
