I am quite active on the [huggingface-transformers] tag on Stack Overflow, and quite a lot of questions are relatively implementation-specific (and thus frequently remain unanswered due to their sheer length). However, I noticed that Huggingface themselves now have opened their own discussion forum, which I think would be more suitable to some of the questions, or might even help others find answers they cannot find on SO.

Now my question:
Is it appropriate to include the link to the discussion forum in the tag description as an "outside resource" for further help?

While I could find some links in other tags (mainly directly pointing to the project), I couldn't find any example of linking to an external help site per se.

    In the tag description? Sure, that's one of the uses for tag wikis, linking to other resources of information. Nov 5 '20 at 12:40

    Yeah, sure, there are many links to helpful resources in SO's regex tag wiki.

Yes, it's okay to link to other resources in tag wikis.

While I could find some links in other tags (mainly directly pointing to the project), I couldn't find any example of linking to an external help site per se.

An example: Stack Overflow's regex tag wiki contains many links to external resources.
