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". – Izumi-reiLuLu May 4 '14 at 8:08
  • Although I am not a technically a new user [82 days so far and counting] and I had difficulty finding it. – Izumi-reiLuLu May 4 '14 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. – Hakase May 4 '14 at 8:39

    @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. – senshin May 5 '14 at 19:02

    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. – кяαzєя May 12 '14 at 2:31

    @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. – Hakase May 12 '14 at 2:40
