Questions that are climate-specific should definitely be allowed. After all, climate varies widely, and it just makes sense. The political climate is the OP's responsibility. If they think there might be a problem and want the answer to reflect that, they should include that in the question. As far as economics, cheaper is generally better, but the ...

The best solution is to create tags in both languages; For those who are profissional in Arabic, they should use the Arabic tags, unless they will include translation to the question. In this case, they should include the English & the Arabic tags. For the learners or those who don't know Arabic, they should mention the English tags. Benefits: Both ...

That is a very good question. I guess, the primary function of the tags is organisation, and searching. So, what we perhaps should do is having a look into the search function of stackexchange sites and see how it works. In any case, the search-funtion is a good argument for having bi-lingual tags, as our users will probably search in both languages. But,...

The tags should be in Arabic, as for the english tags they should be made synonyms and merged into the Arabic tag, the Arabic tag of course being the main/master tag.

That might make sense if this discussion section were designed to be your main destination to follow proposals — but discuss.Area51 wasn't meant to be used like a normal SE site. This is just an unrelated collection of all the posts that happen to be going through the individual proposals. The actual use case for Area 51 was supposed to be that you ...

@Mujahids proposal is easily the best. I am a Western learner; I come for the user group some of the answers are attempting to accommodate. I am not fond of duplicating tags for the sole purpose of accomodating to my user group, some reasons are: duplicate content duplicate abstracts double the work to manage double the work to moderate If this site gets ...

This would be contradictory to the proposal process. You dedicating tags to the site is easily done after the site has made it meta. This can be done by users of the community as well as yourself. The proposal process is only to identify what kind of questions can be asked and what can not. If you will have enough member base, good question, and will be an ...

[Feature-request] generally refers to the functionality of Area 51. This discussion forum is the "meta" of Area 51, so this is somewhat consistent with how our other meta forums work (i.e. a feature request for the parent site). [Change-request] is unique to the Area 51 site-creation process. It is used when a user is asking for a change to a proposal that ...

Agree that questions tagged as proposal that don't use area51-meta should not exist, since not including the area51-meta tag means the question should be about a current, future, or past proposal regardless of its status within the parent topic tag used.

If you need to provide additional context to a question, just do it in a comment. In general, though, the most successful questions can be clearly understood from their titles alone.

I think you may be misunderstanding the workings of Area51, or your terminology is a bit off. The main purpose of Area51 is to propose new sites. These proposals fall into one of a few categories (art, business, culture, etc., see the left-hand column of the main page) Questions are about Area51 itself, or a specific (existing) proposal. Tags are added to ...
