I'm saying this from experience. When I posted my question about OP and ED ratings, I couldn't find an appropriate tag by searching "rating", "site" and "list". I didn't even think to look for .

Here's the tag's current excerpt:

For questions to help users find useful and valid resources that other community members may use on a variety of subjects related to the topic of the site.

Even though it has the word "site" in it, it doesn't show up when you write "site" into tag section.

I propose to add tag synonyms , , and maybe so that would at least show up in tag section.

  • I encountered the same problem. I was asking a question about where to watch animes whithout subs legally and didn't know what tag to add. Not once when asking questions like these do you think of "resources". Commented May 4, 2014 at 8:08
  • Although I am not a technically a new user [82 days so far and counting] and I had difficulty finding it. Commented May 4, 2014 at 8:09
  • @MiharuDante your question and Krazer's edit inspired me to post this proposition. When I asked my question, I was a 1 year user and I had this problem.

    @user1306322 To be fair, this isn't a particularly serious issue, simply because we don't get many questions that merit the resources tag. High-rep users that are aware of the tag can just edit it in when appropriate.

    The problem is that there's no one-size fits all solution for this. The proposed tags synonym are a bit arbitrary and are only helpful in fringe cases. Instead, I think we need to better educate users about what non-series tags are available and how to use them.

    @Krazer I think it's easier to retag manually for now, and even when question rate rises, but I don't think teaching users (btw, how?) is going to be easier than adding a number of obvious tag synonyms.
