With the tag page changed, there are some.. let's call them "controversial" opinions whether it's an improvement or not; I'd rather not comment on that, but point out a certain "feature" in the tag excerpts wikis which are shown on the
Case in point from the TeX-SE tags page:
[header-footer] tag wiki excerpt reads:
TeX and friends give you the resources to put text in the header and footer of your document. This tag is for questions relating to this.
I thought it was just someone was being lazy not providing a proper tag description. But it turned out that this happens on a lot more tags, to a different degree. The layout script, or whatever it is, tries to be clever, and removes some stuff in front of the tag excerpts to avoid repetition, presumably.
The cases I noticed so far:
- "Questions tagged with [foo]"
- "This tag is about"
- "Choose this tag if your question is"
- "Use the [foo] tag for"
- "[foo] is"
- "This tag"
.. and probably more, I'm too lazy to search.
The point is -- the script tries to be clever and removes whole sentences, leaving weird and incomplete description, which is what tag wikis are all about.
Now, the questions:
- Is this status-bydesign or a bug?
- How exactly does it work?
- What template for tag excerpts should we use to avoid ridiculous entries like the one shown?
