I have asked a question on Academia SE, and I'm looking for answers to my question that are either backed up by personal experience or that provide a reference.
Ideally, even a reference-based answer would still include a bit of explanation from the answerer about why the solution mentioned in the reference is, for example, a viable solution to my problem, etc.
In this case, is it advisable to use the reference-request tag?
I mainly want to make sure that I follow the norms of the site (whatever they may be), and I don't want to turn potential answerers away by using/excluding the reference-request tag.
Related meta question: How should the reference-request tag be used?
Edited to add: the sole answer to this meta question doesn't answer the question I am asking at all (yet, the answer is receiving up votes for some reason). So, I'm hoping to get a useful answer to this question.
