One of the most misused tags on our site. Love it or hate it, we have to do something about it.
I first created the tag 6 months ago when I was cleaning up untagged. There were two questions which needed a tag, but none of the existing tags fitted. Hence, I came up with (what seemed like at the time) a brilliant idea to create an all-encompassing tag for these sorts of issues about the Foundation itself.
What I did not forsee when creating this tag, was that newbies to SE would search up
raspberry pi when tagging their question, and since the new tag was the only tag containing the words
raspberry pi, they would think that they have to tag their question with this tag.
Now, raspberry-pi-foundation gets ~20 mistagged questions per month. Luckily, myself and other community members have been editing this tag out of questions before they get too out of had, but we shouldn't have to do this. We need to do something.
Our original plan was to enable a tag warning. However when we took this to the CMs, they wanted us to rethink whether we actually need the tag, and if we do need it, discuss if there is a better way to solve this problem.
Now is when we discuss these issues. So, if you have something to say in this discussion, please:
- state whether or not you think the tag should be kept, and why
- and if it should be kept, what is a better way to deal with this problem.
