# Standardizing specific tags

We have the triview1 (these), which have a specific format.

This question is about the effectiveness of defining a structure for questions with specific tags (like the tags). I have a proposition, and I wanted to see what others think of it. Firstly, as it's super relevant, what do people think about the defined structure of review questions (as outlined in the linked meta post)?

Now (secondly), my proposal:

Give more tags a specific format. By this I mean -

1. questions should state explicitly what the resource is supposed to give. i.e. "What should one be able to learn from the resource" or "How does the resource help with teaching\learning <subject>?".

2. questions should state explicitly the background said layperson has, if any. i.e. "My friend comes from the field of Particle Physics, and I was wondering how to explain what the cmd tracert works ." (this is funny because trace means something in Particle Physics)

3. questions (I almost forgot we had this tag) should state explicitly what the languages suggested will be used with.

These are mere suggestions (except for the first one, which was the original reason I wrote the question) and the reason I didn't post one question for each suggestion is because this post is just to ask what others thought of this.

So, what do you think about giving some tags a preferred structure?

It's a good way to make it clearer if a question with one of those tags is too broad or unclear. A structure should make it clear beyond doubt what's being asked, precisely.

• I love the idea of standardizing more tags as long as there is one tag standardization discussed per meta post. None of those three tags (in my view) lend themselves to hyper-specific formats, but I can see requiring certain information. – Ben I. Jul 23 '17 at 17:20
• @BenI. agreed. this is just the post saying that I think we should do it. In no way will there be more than one suggestion per post, when we get to the actual structure-forming. – ItamarG3 Jul 23 '17 at 17:21
• I believe that the requirements for what is a good question should have a linear corelation to the level of subjectivity of the question type. – Gypsy Spellweaver Jul 23 '17 at 18:25
