So I am in the facebook.stackoverflow.com subview of Stack Overflow editing the body of a question. The question is language independent; it relates solely to the API.

Is there a way to tag this correctly to Stack Overflow tagging semantics?

must include one tag not related to facebook

    What if you use the "problem" tag?

    Hi, you must be new here. The common practice is to use an arbitrary, unrelated tag to get past the script and let the editors worry about it. Commented May 23, 2012 at 22:12

My comment above was tongue-in-cheek... In this case, you could've added the tag, which would've fit the question perfectly. There are 13k+ questions with this tag on Stack Overflow and 1.6k+ questions on Facebook.SO. I've now edited the question you linked to.

In general, finding non-FB tags shouldn't be that hard. The clues might be in the question or the existing tags. For example:

I do think that editors who merely fix the grammar and typos (and might not be domain experts) should not be forced to make a decision on adding a non-FB tag just to improve the site (removing inappropriate tags is OK). You could probably ask this as a separate question.

  • Thanks, I'll do this for other Facebook API questions from now on.
