For the secondary meta sites, we have tags like
feature-request, etc. I really think we could use a tag like
announcement as one of the allowed required-tags. I'm thinking of questions (!) like this: Game Development Stack Exchange swag for top users.
Jeff Atwood justified the post as a discussion. While I would never dream of criticizing the Great One :) , and I do agree that the post is on-topic - still, it really isn't a discussion. Seriously, what's to discuss? They're sending us free stuff :) Comment, or applaud, maybe. But it's not a discussion - it's an announcement. And it would be nice to have a tag to indicate that.
There have been other announcement-type posts, like when Chaos engulfed the site. Tagged as "discussion", belongs as "announcement." :)
Update: I've changed this request to cover only the secondary meta-sites, like meta.gamedev, etc. It has become obvious that the original meta.stackoverflow is unique. Its full discussion tag reads
This tag indicates that the question is a discussion which may not necessarily have a clear-cut right or wrong answer and is often subjective. If it's not a bug or feature-request, it is probably a discussion.
Whereas the secondary meta sites discussion tag reads:
The question you're asking is designed to solicit opinions or best-practices on a particular topic, with the goal of reaching community consensus.
