For example: when I already added the tag, should I add the tag as well?

    Answer is different on every site, so Shog's tag edit is correct. – Shadow Keeps Social Distance Oct 2 '18 at 21:10
  • @ShadowWizard could you please show a site(s) where the Shog’s answer is incorrect? – αλεχολυτ Oct 3 '18 at 3:51

There are no real parent / child tags. Sometimes folks fake it with hyphens, but that's often unreliable - the "design" in refers to something very different from what's meant by .

the Hannibal clock w/ "this is my design" caption

My advice: use as many applicable tags as possible given the constraints of tagging; start with the broadest applicable tag (bug, feature-request, discussion, etc.) and the most narrow applicable tag (say, profile-page or triage) and then fill in the gap between them (design, responsive-design, review, audits, etc.)

  • Didn't know before that etc. is synonym for support :) – αλεχολυτ Oct 2 '18 at 19:29

I know when I'm coding to attach to tags, I will normally over code the tags unless it really doesn't make sense too. My recommendation is to use the least amount of tags to get the job done, then test multiple scenarios. Add tags to compensate when you need to tighten up selection.
