Why are tag scores for each user only calculated by votes on their answers, and not their questions?
Over on my tag page, there are all the tags I've contributed to, and their corresponding scores.
Some are tags I've only given answers for, and so their score adds up to the overall number of votes:
- danmachi (5) - Gave 1 non-wiki answer with a total score of 5
- mahouka-koukou (13) - Gave 6 non-wiki answers with a total score of 13
Then there are some that have questions and answers, but only the question score counts:
- identification-request (11) - Asked one non-wiki question with a total score of 1. Gave 2 non-wiki answers with a total score of 11.
And those that have only questions, and therefore a score of 0:
- kantai-collection (0) - Asked 1 non-wiki question with a total score of 9.
I've taken a look on a few other meta sites and in the help center, but I've found no mention of why tag scores are calculated with answers only. Is there a reason for this? And in extension, why are tag badges bound to answer score only as well?
