Proposal: Materials Modeling

A tag is a keyword or label that categorizes your question with other, similar questions. Using the right tags makes it easier for others to find and answer your question. Apparently using good tags will be critical for getting through beta.

We want the tags to be broad enough to cover a lot of questions, but still narrow enough to be descriptive and not just used on every question.

A good place to start considering tags is for the questions already asked for the proposal. For example, describe a question from the proposal with some suggested tags and why you think those tags would be good.

    You will have a meta to discuss this when the site is created. It is time wasted to ask the question here. – Nij Apr 27 '20 at 20:16

    @Nij This user is new to Area51 and this is their first Commitment and first Private Beta. I did not even know whether or not Private Beta's get their own Meta until the Drones beta went up 2 weeks ago. But also, despite that, they might still just want to be prepared in advance, which I think is a good thing based on my experience with DronesSE. I was there on the first day and there was a flurry of 50 questions within a short period of time, and very messy tagging as everyone had the ability to create new tags. It then took a lot of effort and discussion to correct everything. – Nike Dattani Apr 28 '20 at 1:12
  • This user might be referring to what CM Catja said recently, about Drones being ready to go Public on Tuesday 28 April if the tag situation is fixed by then. – Nike Dattani Apr 28 '20 at 1:13

    @Nij I'll be glad to move the question to meta when it launches. I wouldn't call the work "wasted" however. I simply thought this was the meta and it would be good to formalize our discussion of tags. going through and tagging all the questions would be easier if I know what to look for. – Cody Aldaz Apr 28 '20 at 2:33

    It's a thought worth having, and something everybody should keep in mind when asking the first questions, but I guess we cannot come up with meaningful tags until we can actually apply them. – Martin - マーチン Apr 28 '20 at 11:35
