Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Spawned from here: Community split between SO and project mailinglist/IRC channel

The basic idea is to be able to attach "resources" or links to a tag which will then be shown in the moment the user chooses that tag. Here, let me draw you some ugly mock-ups:

Absolutely ugly mockup.

The benefit of this is that users can be more efficiently be guided to Bug-Trackers, official documentation and other stuff.

Upsides:

  • Project maintainers can more efficiently channel their SE audience.
  • Some Off-Topic and Not-So-Fitting questions (Bug reports f.e.) are taken away from SE.
  • The possibility that we teach people something (because they'll visit those links) rises.

Downsides:

  • Those need to be displayed somewhere/somehow. My mockup might not be the best idea.
  • Those need to be maintained, but I think this will work like the tag wikis do.

Another idea might be to make the tag-wikis more visible and easier to find...but I have no idea how to do that.

isn't this what the tag wiki is for..? – Jeff Atwood Jan 13 '12 at 1:21
    
@JeffAtwood: Basically, yes. But the tag wikis are not really easy to find, in my opinion and are not that easily visible. – Time Traveling Bobby Jan 13 '12 at 7:35
