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

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.

In this process, I have already invented three new tags. Those would be particularly good candidates for review.

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.
