There are many tags that imply others. See a highly related question: Could we make tags imply other tags?. One of the reasons against it is that it makes it more likely to hit the 5 tag limit. There are probably other reasons against as well.

My question is could we make tags optionally imply others. Like, if you use a tag, it will ask if you want to use other related tags.

The reason tag implication is good is so by following, say, , I also will follow anyone who tags questions or such (since most of them would be tagged anyway).

Tags imply each other anyway (people automatically add more general versions of tags already); it would just be nice if there was technical assistance in this process.

    Note that tag suggestions already exist, but are created based on analysis of the post content (not other tags). This could perhaps be an extension of that?
