So I read this Server Fault meta post, which says how to request tag warnings:

Open a new meta question under the tag with the proposed text and the tag to which it should be applied. This will allow for community input to improve the text, if necessary, before we kick it upstairs.

We get a ton of questions, and have this old request with no specific agreed text or staff response, so here I am proposing the warning. Please provide feedback on it in comments and/or answers; this is not final:

  • When did you view it? Give an approximate year or range of years
  • What kind of media was it?
  • What language was it in?
  • Where do you think it was from?
  • What unique plot details do you remember?
  • What were the characters like?

For more detailed guidance, see How to ask a good story-ID question?

  • That seems to be specific to Server Fault, tho. Stack Overflow calls them tag-tips (case in point)

  • @Machavify might as well request it, no matter what the name is. Jun 25, 2019 at 20:39

    You may want to add a paragraph above the bulleted list which introduces it (e.g. "Your question is more likely to get a useful answer if you provide this information..." or words to that effect). Otherwise, it looks a bit brusque.

    Perhaps instead of "For more detailed guidance, see" you might consider "To improve your question, why not work through the checklists here;"
