Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

FAQ questions should be exempt from required tags

Meta requires at least one of the following tags to be present in a question:

must include one of these tags -- 'bug feature-request discussion support'

Might it be worth adding to this? I posted a FAQ update proposal where I don't think any of the above tags are particularly appropriate... but perhaps I'm misinterpreting their meaning.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

When something is currently [faq-proposed], it seems like a [discussion] tag is the best choice. After all, it's still open for discussion as long as it's not an official FAQ. We want the community to contribute. – Cody Gray Jul 8 '11 at 11:58
@Cody: But that's the case for bug and feature-request too. In fact, arguably every post on meta is by definition "open for discussion". – Lightness Races in Orbit Jul 8 '11 at 12:20
Incidentally, I just realised that there is a difference between the Stack Overflow FAQ and questions tagged faq. I was referring to the former. – Lightness Races in Orbit Jul 8 '11 at 12:22

If you've got a , then you're requesting a change to the system. That falls very neatly under the definition of .

The only reason it's so bulkily phrased as a tag is because is already a very special tag for a very different role, so we need a clear tag that indicates when a question is talking about the /faq page. Sometimes we also use when talking about that page, but there hasn't been a clear consistency in that yet. Perhaps that'll need some visitation, but in either scenario we can still stick with using as your required tag.
