We have quite a few tags, but not much descriptions yet. The question of what should be in a tag-wiki has been discussed quite a few times on MSO, but no hard rules are set. From this discussion on MSO, and this blog.SE post, some general good practices are:
- Tags should describe what kinds of questions should have that tag. It should (if applicable) also mention what questions are off-topic (for e.g., make it clear that questions on maintaining trees belong on tree-care and not plant-care)
- It should have a basic introduction or a brief paragraph on the subject (the key word being brief). The word "wiki" in tag-wiki shouldn't be taken to mean Wikipedia, and we shouldn't have long, detailed and overly technical descriptions of common terms.
- Some links to good, on-topic questions with that tag will be helpful (the site is still young, but we can revisit and add better questions as it evolves).
The point of this post is to have a discussion on how to make the tags most effective for this community. Any and all suggestions are welcome :)
