Is the tag still something we want to do?

This answer says that is more on-topic than the tag, but that was 2 years ago, and Interpersonal Skills started as public beta around 2 years ago too.

My opinion is that most of the questions could be more on topic on Interpersonal or Workplace SE sites.


  • Are there any questions that are on topic here that wouldn't be on Interpersonal or Workplace?
  • Is the the tag generally on topic with the site these days?

    It seems like it's almost always going to be about writing advice which would almost always be opinion based. But I don't see a glut of these being problematic lately. Is there harm in allowing it to stay?

  • @Mitch we've had 3 this month, this one made me think of it Aug 27, 2019 at 17:39
  • @Mitch this isn't a burninate-request (yet). I'm curious about whether it is relevant - if people think not, then it could escalate. Aug 27, 2019 at 17:42

    Re 3 this month - for roughly 2 per month over the life of ELU, some clumping and some sparseness are not unexpected. Re burninating or rather its flipside, auto-closing of questions that would have such a tag, I don't think its on the level of "IELTS" or "Is this grammatical?" whatever the tags) which are almost automatically closable.

  • @Mitch fair enough. grammar 🔥 Aug 27, 2019 at 19:06
  • @Mitch the [grammaticality] tag is still a thing, right? It has over 5,000 questions.

    @JJJ Sure it's a popular tag, and a very reasonable and logical one for this site, but any question that starts out "Is this grammatical?" is already going down a pathway that is unlikely to be a good one. First, such a titled question is most likely going to be more relevant to ELL, and for them probably closable too. Just my feelings about things.
