Yes it's a boring topic for most, but for those amongst us who really want to get this sorted out, it's time to have an event.

Last month (Oct 31) we had an answering event, and did a massive cleanout of the unanswered questions, which was fantastic. With a surge of traffic this month and a lot of new users asking questions on new topics, our tags have grown, and we've had much debate on plurals vs singulars and the like.

As such, an event (unfortunately it'll require that you have enough points to suggest tag edits and the like) to add these and approve them should help with this - if all the descriptions for tags are there, people are more likely to use the right ones. for registration, come one come all, 9.30am UTC on November 30th.

I am hoping you might also tackle: cusco, daintree, easter-island, el-calafate, puno, silk-road, tikal, torres-del-paine (just the excerpts would be great for now). –  pnuts Aug 17 at 15:26
@pnuts this was 4 years ago... –  Mark Mayo Aug 18 at 5:34
Can't see that matters myself. –  pnuts Aug 18 at 5:36
Well it was a chat event that finished 4 years ago. So it's unlikely to tackle those things you mentioned. If you mean in general, sure, but you posted on a post specifically about a chat event from 2011. –  Mark Mayo Aug 18 at 5:37
I hijacked an answer here because, as you say, 4 years without an answer seemed to mean unlikely to get in the way. It has had about 20 views recently so I'm happy at least some are aware. If you refer to my comment, I meant those 8 specifically for Mark Mayo to add excerpts to (but no need now to bother with cusco - it is down to a singe Q). –  pnuts Aug 18 at 5:42

1 Answer 1

There is no question to answer so instead I'll take up some space with a request for some further help with indexing. Of about 1,509 tags about 150 that matter (ie not synonyms, and applied more than just one time) are presently still showing as having no Usage guidance (excerpt).

For these the maximum individual usage is 6, so not too many questions to trawl through if that is necessary to determine how any one particular tag is being used.

A few seem to have a strong US 'flavour' (without my checking usage):

Maybe some American cousin would be kind enough to suggest something (and I do or don't mean that literally) to 'fill the gaps'.

Not forgetting our other American cousins:

Could you add the query used to find un-described tags? –  JoErNanO Aug 17 at 12:10
