A question can only have a max of 5 tags. Does it make sense to always go by "the more tags the better" even when some of chosen tags are:
- barely related to the subject;
- extremely detailed
- very unpopular (0 followers).
- and question already has 1 or more tags which describe it well?
I'm talking about situations when question has 1 or more well-suited tags, and the rest don't have a real purpose (in my opinion).
Fixed panels while scrolling on a centered design This css related question has fixed tag. Should this tag be removed from the question? Technically, a tag could be created for each css attribute, each php function... See where I'm going?
Another example would be mysql_real_escape_string tag for php/mysql related question.
error tag. How can this tag be useful? It doesn't tell anything.
css3-transitions-not-working-on-button css-transitions tag used here. Should it be kept or removed?
In all situations mentioned above, I would opt for removing the bolded tag. But maybe my understanding of tagging questions is wrong.
I found a similar question (should-imprecise-tags-be-removed), but it's not as detailed as I'd wish.
Shed some light/share your thoughts :)
