I want to add something here: Don't plagiarize That means: If you're suggesting an edit to a tag wiki, suggest original content. I see this most with excerpts - convenient chunks taken directly from Wikipedia, a product page, etc. I tend to be a little more lenient if there's a link to the original source in the wiki, but it's all-around better to just ...

tag wiki excerpts These should be short and precise, with no unnecessary fuzz. Use this tag if you are seeking software recommendations for … is very bad style – for multiple reasons: "use this tag": superflous. Of course tags are there to be used :) "if you are seeking software recommendations": super-superflous. What else is this site for? The ...

You can go ahead and write a new tag wiki for it. The old tag wiki will be preserved in the revision history in case we need to reference it again if a cvs tag pops up. Since we don't have any questions that I can see that should be tagged with a cvs tag, there's no use in creating a tag for it now. It would just be culled when the tag-cleaner runs.

Well, “productivity software” is a commonly used software category, so it makes sense to have it as a tag. However, beware that it doesn't mean the same thing to everybody — I don't think the Wikipedia article, which defines the term as encompassing office suites, databases, email clients, etc. reflects 21st century usage. I would recommend using more ...

There seems to be such a category called "productivity software", however besides being extremely generic, the members of that group changes with time. (Would you still consider Microsoft Powerpoint a productivity software?) Gilles' suggestion is to divide and rename productivity into two new tags, one for each use case: Use case 1: Software that helps ...

I always felt "productivity" being a bad category when seeing it in software catalogues e.g. at Google Play. What should that be? In terms of SE, clearly "too broad". It might be the counter-part of "games" (i.e. the opposite of "entertainment") – but then, where does TV (and other media stuff) fit, which can serve both purposes? Especially seeing "printing" ...

I think this must be decided on a per-tag basis. If possible, at least short hints should be placed in the excerpt (I fully agree with Angelo that most people only read the pop up that tells them what the tag is about (if anything at all). The tag wiki should then have a more detailed explanation, optionally including examples. bootable is a bad example ...

I say that if the tag is ambiguous enough so people might misuse it just remove or replace the tag.

I say we should put this in the excerpt as long as it can be said within a sentence.
