Is really useful?

@Krzystof just added it, but @Bryan removed a similar yesterday.

It's difficult to say if a tag that has just been added has any value.

From the little experience I've had watching this site grow I can see that many tags that I didn't think would be useful have grown and others have evolved into necessities.

Therefore my answer is to not concern yourself with tags as they are created, but instead look back at tags that aren't being used or are being used sparingly after a few months of being created.

Obviously this has exceptions, such as obvious duplicates, irrelevant, or off topic tags. However, this is probably an example of let it be for now.

Obviously it is for me. I didn't see "version" tag before. Just thought that I would like to be able to easily find all the questions regards changes done in hardware. It would also be good to know that some answers can be revision specific. Other way would be to create question tracking changes in different revisions and update it each time there is some information about revision change.

  • This isn't a revision-specific tag though, just a tag to say it's about different revisions. Not sure what value that adds. – Alex Chamberlain Sep 11 '12 at 14:56
  • Feel free to remove this tag (or we can wait for what others say about it). I just think that especially now, a lot of people will be posting questions related to the revising change. I thought it might be useful to just group them together and i believe that this is what tags are for. I'm new to SE so I may be just wrong about that. – Krzysztof Adamski Sep 11 '12 at 15:03
  • I started the question to discuss it; I don't have a massive opinion either way, but as I said, not too sure about its value. – Alex Chamberlain Sep 11 '12 at 15:04
