I appreciate it's early days, and we're still finding our feet with tags, but given this is a Genealogy and Family History site, do we really need a family-tree tag?
Surely this is the sort of Meta Tag that is frowned upon? It's a bit like having a software tag on Programmers.SE
As I see it, there are two types of post that may use the family-tree tag:
- Posts that are also tagged with other more focussed tag(s). In which case, a meta-tag such as family-tree adds no value; or
- Posts that are not tagged with anything else. In which case, the question is probably either:
- Very general, and as such likely to be closed; or
- Off topic for the site
I note, however, some of the responses below... perhaps, rather than blacklisting, this tag needs a tight definition, with use out-with that definition moderated.
