General tagging practices

I asked a question that required the creation of a tag(s). I created a tag for the author and the novel. The novel tag was removed from it. I've found a meta post suggesting we don't create a tag for every novel. I also didn't see anything in the FAQ pertaining to this.

Do we have any rules or guidelines down for tag creation?

  • Yes, we do, but I admit they aren't particularly easy to find.

  • Curse my search terms! I never stuck "general" or "practices" with "tag". Thanks for the link! Can we get that linked in the FAQ? Might make things easier for other noobs in the future.

  • I've added a few explanations of common cases. I tried giving the question more visibility but ran into a technical snag. I'm aware that our FAQ organization is far from perfect, suggestions are welcome.
