There are many questions (~250 in the last five weeks) relating to
- Firing mods and forced relicensing: is Stack Exchange still interested in cooperating with the community?
These questions relate to the same growing polarization between community and Stack Exchange staff. But, it is not easy to search or filter them because the tags are not uniform for those questions, they do not have the same tags.
Could we group all these posts together by some common tag (new or not)? (in addition, maybe we should create less of these questions, they tend to become noise now, water down the core message, and it is very difficult to follow).
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 moderators x x x x community x x x etiquette x users x company x moderation x code-of-conduct x x x deleted-questions x legal x
These tags are obviously not the same while it is arguably the same topic (it is even for the same, specific, search term) .
Instead of using multiple searches one might wish to control tracking these question by adding some single relevant tag to watched tags or ignore tags. But, this is difficult when they do not use the same tag. And in the case of ignoring one might ignore too much when the tag is not specific.
Another indicator that these posts need consistent tagging is the fact that there exist highly upvoted answers that function as an archive for these questions (see part 1 and part 2). But it is only a hack/workaround for the absence of a common tag; they are not an optimal solution.
In an older question (Should we have a tag for significant points in time?) it was suggested to create a specific tag. That was rejected at that point. But, now we are several weeks, and many many questions, further. The situation is more escalated than what might have foreseen at that point. The overview becomes a mess and something needs to be done.
