What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

All questions on the Facebook mini-site must have at least one Facebook-related tag, but this can make the question overview quite tedious: , , , for one question.

Since we're already on a filtered view, I propose to replace the facebook- part of the tag with just the Facebook icon, and maybe give them a highlight to indicate these are required tags - similar to how is different from on Meta.

An example with two questions modified and two not:

Question list where the Facebook-specific tags are in Facebook-color and have an icon

(This would also help to give the site a slightly different look to indicate that we are somewhere special.)

I like this, but it relies on a particular quirk of this mini-site in that many of the tags are of the form [foo-bar] where foo is common. That will not always be true... –  Jeff Atwood Sep 3 '11 at 8:42

@Jeff - what sort of mini-sites would that not be true for? I was under the impression the raison d'être for mini-sites was the [foo-.+] commonality. –  Flexo Sep 3 '11 at 14:23

@Jeff: Even if a site-specific tag is not shortened, you still get the benefit of a visual distinction between them and the regular tags, allowing one to scan the list with more ease. –  Jan Fabry Sep 3 '11 at 20:15

I think you could do it, but to not have the problem Jeff refers to in his comment, the mods would just pick the specific tags they wanted to be mini-site-specific, and those would be the ones highlighted. They would probably need to enter some meta information of the form:

<icon>graph-api

where <icon> was the specific one for the mini-site in question.
