I asked a question some time back (after the deprecation of the homework tag) that was for homework. I didn't want to write a dorky sentence at the top of my question that said "this is a homework question" .
So, rather than waste text, I added homework to the body of my question (not the tags). My post was edited pretty quickly - the homework tag was removed and the kludgy sentence was added to the top of my post in its place.
What is the correct/preferred way of signaling that my question is indeed a homework question?
