What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

So I am in the facebook.stackoverflow.com subview of Stack Overflow editing the body of a question. The question is language independent; it relates solely to the API.

Is there a way to tag this correctly to Stack Overflow tagging semantics?

must include one tag not related to facebook

What if you use the "problem" tag? –  random May 23 '12 at 21:48

Hi, you must be new here. The common practice is to use an arbitrary, unrelated tag to get past the script and let the editors worry about it. –  Lorem Ipsum May 23 '12 at 22:12

My comment above was tongue-in-cheek... In this case, you could've added the tag, which would've fit the question perfectly. There are 13k+ questions with this tag on Stack Overflow and 1.6k+ questions on Facebook.SO. I've now edited the question you linked to.

In general, finding non-FB tags shouldn't be that hard. The clues might be in the question or the existing tags. For example:

I do think that editors who merely fix the grammar and typos (and might not be domain experts) should not be forced to make a decision on adding a non-FB tag just to improve the site (removing inappropriate tags is OK). You could probably ask this as a separate question.

Thanks, I'll do this for other Facebook API questions from now on. –  phwd May 26 '12 at 19:11
