Recently, I've been working my way through child-metas on the SE 2.0 sites (I've been cycling through old support, bug, and feature requests) and noticed an odd pattern.
Many users ask a question such as, "How do I do X?" where X refers to something like track badge progress, prettify code, or some other bit of site functionality. However, these are almost always tagged feature-request when realistically the question is asking for help using the Stack Exchange architecture as it is -- the definition of the support.
I've retagged a ton of these questions on a few child metas and it's gotten me wondering: are these tags actually being used correctly? (After all, the question isn't being retagged before I get to it.) Or, is feature-request being misapplied network-wide?
Asking here because I'd like to hear observations from meta-users across all SE 2.0 sites, especially top users and mods. It may also be that this is happening just on the subset of sites that I've been looking at lately.
