When I tried to get the 'research assistant' badge on sci-fi, it linked me to this 'interesting tags' page.

But on meta it sends me to three tags pages.

I've confirmed this isn't a moderator thing, based on this, and this

Why is that? Is scifi special?

  • I'm pretty sure that link isn't visible to someone who isn't a mod on SFF... – Rand al'Thor Mar 23 '16 at 18:55
  • @Rand I think you're right, on here it's linked to the tags page – Pureferret Mar 23 '16 at 20:27

Research Assistant requires you to edit 50 tag wikis. Tag wikis are supposed to be thoughtful introductions to a topic, which are therefore best written by someone who is at least vaguely knowledgeable about the topic.

Your favorite/interested tags are presumably at least correlated with topics you know something about. Hence, linking you to your preferred tags is a good place for you to start editing tag wikis that you know something about.

  • I figured that tangential relationship, but it seemed an odd place to start. I was going it'd take me to a page like this – Pureferret Mar 23 '16 at 17:36

    @Pureferret That would perhaps make more sense, but I guess they figure you're less likely to have expertise there. – ArtOfCode Mar 23 '16 at 17:37
  • it looked like it's just on scifi. – Pureferret Mar 24 '16 at 11:13
