Proof-reading is currently explicitly off-topic. That's because finding mistakes in a passage isn't particularly useful:
- Posters on a site for "serious enthusiasts" should have a reasonable knowledge of the language already and not have to ask "Are there any mistakes here?" "What have I got wrong?" or whatever;
- Each question helps only its asker. There is no way that anyone else is going to come up with exactly the same passage and exactly the same errors. (If there is something specific to ask about, then it's not proof-reading.)
However, we currently have a proofreading tag. It has no tag wiki and it's not clear what it's for.
What should it be for? I don't propose allowing proof-reading questions on the site — in fact I will argue vehemently that the current policy is entirely correct — but what should happen to the tag?
Should we use it to explain that proof-reading is explicitly off-topic?
Should we burninate and blacklist it?
Is something else appropriate?
