After usability, next on my hit-list is . I think it's too generic to be useful, and we should encourage more specific tags like and . What do you think? What other tags capture the idea of "best practices" but are more specific?

Or if you think we should keep best-practices, how can we define it so that retaggers have clear guidance on when it should be used?

  • I winced when I first saw the tag here, but it's grown on me to a certain extent. Will have to get thinking...

Considering that is exactly the tag we killed on Stack Overflow in the Great Meta-Tag Purge..


I can't see it being any different here.

  • Please kill best-practices and design. That should take care of the worst-offending meta tags. Thanks! May 5 '11 at 13:28
  • @patrick this is done; look out for [untagged] questions. May 5 '11 at 20:12
  • Weird. You took out [best-practices] but now its back under the name [best-practice]. Can you kill that one too? May 11 '11 at 12:49

Maybe it can be killed. Even though I just used it. :) But when I think about the term it feels like the whole UX universe is built around finding the best possible solution. And I suppose it can't be replaced.
