Over on travel.se I'm pretty sure I'm currently the biggest editor of tag wikis (well excerpts anyway).
We have a few guidelines for style etc, like starting with a capital letter and ending with a full stop for uniformity and avoiding the word "is" and overly long excerpts because they can cause automatic truncation of the excerpt text in the Tags page which sometimes has ugly results. And of course things like avoiding literal definition of the tags.
For those of us with an interest in keeping the tag wikis in line with these goals there's no way to know when they've been edited other than suggested edits by low rep users, which are pretty rare on our site.
It would be great to add a notification system so that tag wiki edits would be announced in your "inbox".
It could work a couple of ways:
- Notify only tags I created or have previously edited.
- Notify only favourite tags.
- Opt in for notification of all tag edits on a site.
- Enable notification on each individual tag somehow.
Besides the inbox there could also be a tab very similar to the "active questions" tab for "active tag wikis" linked to the Tags page.
