I have rejected some edits by @RoninEngineer.

To add RPI-4 tags to a question that is a generic question and NOT specific for Raspberry Pi 4 is not an edit that enhance the question in my opinion.

Advice? Yes/no?

2 Answers 2


Unless the question is specifically about the Pi 4 as described by the tag:

For questions that apply specifically to the Raspberry Pi 4 and not other/all models.

There is no reason to add the tag.

As an aside I'm not really a fan of edits that just change the tags. There's normally some aspect of formatting and/or grammar that can also be improved at the same time. (Sometimes changing the tags is enough of an improvement in itself but I would say that this is not common).

  • Thx that was my opinion to.

    I agree WRT the misuse of 'p-4' but, WRT just adding a tag, if it is an improvement, doing something is better than doing nothing because too much needs to be done and you don't have time for all of it.

    I'm not a fan of edits that just change spelling and/or grammar. Often these are to ancient posts, add NOTHING to understanding and just push the question into the Activity queue, encouraging unnecessary comment.

Adding unnecessary tags is vandalism. Just because the OP is using a Pi4 doesn't make it a Pi4 question.

Similar applies to tags like python-3 for generic python questions (which are usually deleted on Stack Overflow).

Some tags e.g. raspbian are MEANINGLESS (unless they apply to Wheezy) and benefit from a change, as they make tag searches more useful.

    Vandalism is an intentional act that is deliberately destructive. An edit which makes the question worse is a deterioration. Jan 5, 2023 at 13:05
