Questions posted over the past few weeks have had incorrect tags in them that provide editors (especially new ones!) the opportunity to re-tag for reputation and general understanding of tags. I would like to get some consensus as to how we should be tagging these articles.
Let's say I have a (fake) question:
I am taking computer science courses on the side to help me with my math PhD work. How would I cite the textbook in my paper in APA format?
This short blurb, which has a bunch of stuff, could potentially be tagged with computer-science, phd, citation-style, citations, books, mathematics, and a whole other slew of tags. Let's say the author uses all 5 of these.
How would, and should we, be re-tagging this question to better help other members of the website, and keep everything organized?
I will present my approach, as I've been doing it for the past few months here. If anyone has a different point, please provide it.
