To answer the AnswerMe
But please consider using PlainEnglish.
I can see how people might not like the tone of AnswerMe. It sounds like a command, when really it's a request. You might consider the PleaseComment WikiTag. I think it would be more universal and also more polite.
Perhaps a better tag would be CouldSomeonePleaseExplainThisToMe? ;) On first read, AnswerMe seemed a bit too presumptuous or demanding to me although I imagine it wasn't meant so. If the intent is to seek an explanation from one of the experts (something I find myself often wanting to do but reluctant to "impose"), I might have tried something like PleaseExplain?.
No, no. Please keep it AnswerMe. I think practical users appreciate its small size. It would be best to inform people to disregard tone in WikiTags. Having long tags would be disruptive to the readibility of the page as you have to use a little more 'brain' to pick apart the words. I'm not saying using more 'brain' is bad, just saying that it's nice to avoid unnecessary disruptions to readibility and save 'brain' for comprehending the subject. -- LeeLouviere.
As a side-note: AnswerMe! is also the name of a zine by Jim Goad, who gained a bit of renown in zineland with his highly confrontational - some say juvenile - writing style.
I think that would run into the same problem. What do you think about putting the questions on the actual AnswerMe page? -- md
Not sure whether that would be appreciated by everybody, although it does seem like a possibility. But I would definitely recommend putting this issue on that page or on AnswerMeDiscussion? if there is such a page or you want to create it. -- tr
I like the idea of having the questions included - having to click through page after page, grep for the AnswerMe, and find out it's something I know nothing about can really kill a random contributory impulse :) Would it be feasible to, for instance, extract everything between a pair of square brackets enclosing an AnswerMe tag and a brief question summary? -- martindemello
Within the currect reflexes, it would make sense to have AnswerCategory? page with AnswerCategory[Category] (like AnswerCategoryPearl?) pages so people can post their questions there, then place AnswerCategory? and AnswerMe at the top. That way people looking at the AnswerMe tag, would see a category for the questions and know whether it's worth it to check the page. People could also check the backlinks for the AnswerCategory? page or do a search, to see what categories of questions exist. Any conflicting pre-existing pages can be renamed or merged with another page. -- LeeLouviere
