Currently, all but one question is tagged with , also. Per the prior discussion, I don't think this was what was intended. Is this what we intend to happen, or should the distinction between the two be made more clear?

I think having both and makes sense in situations where you're using Show or some other method to build upon a built-in ...Plot function.

(I took off the RegionPlot example, where it seemed wholly unnecessary.)

  • I was leaning that way, myself, but I wanted the overall discussion, so we can set it in thick-mud, if not stone. – rcollyer Jan 20 '12 at 19:46
  • BTW, I have both [graphics] and [plotting] favorited and will see if I can keep some order to them. The tag wiki for each could be improved a bit.. – Brett Champion Jan 20 '12 at 19:58
  • Yeah, have to get to those at some point. – rcollyer Jan 20 '12 at 20:01

I think of as being the super-tag, with , being sub-tags. I can also see situations where you would use the tag but not either of those two, e.g. when the question is about exporting graphics.

Since one can add up to five tags, I think the double-tagging is a reasonable solution.

EDIT To clarify, I think of as being a good tag for people to follow when they are looking for questions to answer. I see the narrower tags as being better for looking for existing questions when you are trying to see if your question has already been asked.

  • I can see the latter, but the former, while being technically correct, seems like tag pollution to me, and require additional work on the users/mods part to keep correct. – rcollyer Jan 21 '12 at 2:32
  • I just found myself attempting to retag an image-processing question. I may lean more your way, then I thought. – rcollyer Jan 21 '12 at 4:57
  • @rcollyer please see my edit – Verbeia Jan 21 '12 at 5:05
