I am seeing many tags like c++, rss etc which are common on the SE ecosystem. Is there a way to import these tags from any other SE website to Ethereum SE?

If yes, it would help us keep the tags meaningful with minimum effort.


The short answer is no.

Apart from the technical considerations, tag wiki excerpts were not meant to simply define what a word means. Excerpts should describe when and how that tag is to be used on this site specifically.

If a tag excerpt says something like "C++ is a programming language created in the early '80s by… etc.", you're probably missing the point of providing tag-usage guidance for this site.

Tag wikis are the larger, free-form component of the tagging ecosystem. It provides an opportunity to compile a resource about that subject for this community specifically. Again, if a tag wiki contains a lot of generic information of no particular interest to this community, you're probably not using tag wikis for the purpose they were intended.

    A nice example of this are the respective C++ tags on Stack Overflow and on Arduino. – Shog9 Feb 15 '16 at 21:39
  • Yeah, makes sense. However using in different sites and different context won't change the actual purpose and definition of most of the terms like c++ or rss. Difference i can see is, they mentioned it is for Aurdino on the arudino SE and general purpose in SO. Although i am not expecting to blindly import all the tags. – niksmac Feb 16 '16 at 2:35
