Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

There are a few tags on SO which are widely treated as requiring community wiki. I'm thinking of [code-golf] in particular, but there is also [subjective] and ::shudder:: [fun]. If the "rule" is obeyed uniformly, then no one should every get the requisite 100 non-CW votes needed to earn tag-wiki editing privileges.

  • Would it be useful for [all | any of | a few of] these tags to have tag-wiki pages?
  • If so, what selection criteria should be used choose who writes them, or do we just expect the team and or moderators to handle it?

BTW-- Subjective has a tag-wiki presumably due to the historical lack of CW at the very beginning and a less than uniform feeling about making subjective queries CW.

i've read this three times and i'm not quite sure what you mean by "tag wiki". is this post suggesting that (for example) all new questions tagged [subjective] should be made CW automatically? – Kip Jul 22 '10 at 14:57
@Kip: New feature. Follow the "Subjective has a tag-wiki" link and/or see So what’s this “tag wiki” thing? – dmckee Jul 22 '10 at 15:00
missed that, thanks – Kip Jul 22 '10 at 17:22
We should ask @Sam Hocevar to write the [code-golf] wiki — he has a score of 173. :p – kennytm Jul 24 '10 at 6:56
@KennyTM 173 sounds like a horrible score for golf. – Grace Note Aug 27 '10 at 15:09
