There are a lot of questions now that could be tagged: "sudoku", "sorting", "maze" etc.
Should we tag them?
What is the current policy on tagging? Tag everything that appears thrice or more? Tag at-will?
We want an end state where we get things tagged by
General topics to help users pick posts in domains that interest them. Things like:
The biggest problem is that until we've been at this for a while we won't know what the categories are. So, we should encourage pretty free tagging for a while, and then start using the synonym mechanism and editing to bring the outliers into conformance with the practice that develops.
Edit: I've started a campaign to add descriptive tags to as many just-tagged-code-golf type questions as I can. Help would be appreciated, as would review of my tagging choices.
I think as long as a tag describes a class of problems we can leave them.
maze for example could mean maze-generation, maze-solving in the general case as well as more specific tasks and thus (in future) could be a useful tag.
