When questions are posted, the system demands they have at least one tag. These are typically used responsibly and well. However, in a significant number of cases, they aren't. For example:
- some users create overly granular tags (e.g., adding a cake tag when asking about Jeremiah 44:19 -- n.b. hypothetical example!);
- some omit the tag of the book or corpus under investigation;
- others mis-apply some existing tag (I think the contradiction tag is a bit magnetic in this regard);
This is the help that is provided when a question is being prepared (having clicked in the "Tags" field):
There are two forms of help given on the page to users:
- The greyed-out "dummy text" in the tags field itself;
- and the prominent bullet-list that appears in the right sidebar.
(There is also a broader Help page with in the "Asking" section.) Is there any way either of these can be tailored for a specific site? Or perhaps this is another constraint of being a "beta" site? Some additional information would be helpful here.
It would be good minimally (imo!) to add in the bulleted list (in first position!) something like:
► include the tag related to your specific biblical text
I realize that discipline in creating tags is a different matter, and our tag-wikis are (reasonably) well curated, so that we have at least some help there. But this latter matter is an on-going project.
Thoughts and facts :) appreciated!
