When a user wants to ask about an specific anime they are usually creating new tags adding no info to them. For example:

What exactly is “Paradise”?

Did all the townsfolk know that Yuki is a wolf?

What part of Tiger & Bunny do purple, white, and green plastic bins refer to?

What should we do with these tags? Should we start to add info to every tag added?


List of Tags without Description:

As this Tags get description or new tags are added i will update the list.

  • Do you want people to start going through and deleting in the post after they edit the tag wikis?

  • Oh, I've been starting to add to wikis on the list. I can just delete the ones that I do as I go.

IMO, if the tag is proper (i.e. not an odd meta-tag or a series that doesn't exist/is unrelated), then it should have a tag wiki entry. This is the case especially for new or less popular tags, when we want them to be visible and entice people to use them.

I really don't see any reason to not add the tag wikis. If they aren't helpful or need to be removed, we will either decline the edit or have someone remove the entry.

    Agreed. It's worth noting that the most important cases to write tag wikis are if the series is likely to be asked about again and/or the tag is somehow ambiguous. girls-und-panzer is probably not so important to get a wiki, since it's obvious what it refers to and it's not a hugely popular series. On the other hand, if you use abbreviations or the series is known by multiple names, a tag wiki is important.

  • Also, this meta question addresses the question of how to write a good tag wiki. Note that it isn't acceptable to just copy from some other source. That constitutes plagarism and your edit will be rejected if we notice this.

    Yes, that's kinda how tags work. They are born out of need, and upgraded when possible (with wikis and excerpts). Apr 9 '13 at 5:01
