I'm getting little bit tired of finding the
Please don't use the BUGS tag until the community find confirmation there is a bug
comment under most bugs questions.
Moderator-only tags are probably a no-go, and probably not the best idea anyway.
Tag Warnings are a great idea IMO and I have requested their implementation on our site.
Interesting proposal. I don't really like making tag names needlessly longer, but I seem to recall that you were the first to propose
wolfram-mathematica on Stack Overflow and later it became apparent such a change was in fact beneficial.
As it stands we have the tag summary:
This tag is reserved for questions where the problem has been vetted by this community and the observed behavior is confirmed to be a bug. Please do not use this tag for new questions.
I guess the question is how many people actually read that, and how many ignore it? I don't have those numbers. If people are reading this and applying the tag anyway I don't think it will matter what we name the tag.
I wonder of some tags should be moderator-only, like status-completed here on meta. I don't know if this is possible, and I cannot recall reading about this on the main meta site but I shall look for it.
If it is possible to make bugs, faq, etc. only applicable by moderators is that a good solution? This would increase the workload for moderators, but at the moment it seems we are not having trouble handing flags, etc. in a timely fashion.
It's 2020 and people keep tagging unconfirmed bugs as bugs every month or so. Some examples:
and dozens more. It is clear to me that the meaning of bugs is contrary to what new users expect from a tag called "bugs", and most users do not read the tag description to correct themselves. Other users have noted the same problem. The name confirmed-bug would actually mean what people expect it to, so renaming it seems like an obvious choice, even if it does not dissuade users from tagging new questions bugs all the time.
