I noticed some edits that have added [Story Identification]: in there header below is an example.

Short story with carnivorous organisms mimicking objects

Is this the preferred way? I always though that having the tag is enough.

    I noticed this happened to a recent question of mine, which is a little disturbing given my habitual hangouts on other SEs where this is explicitly discouraged and edits tend to remove such tags from the titles. Jan 8, 2015 at 9:25
  • Note to whoever reviews the Suggested Edit queues: please reject such edits Jan 8, 2015 at 14:52
  • @DVK These particular edits were done by a high rep user, bypassing the review queue. I agree, though, that they are largely unnecessary

This is unneeded, if you see this in the future, feel free to edit the question title to remove the tags, adding any appropriate tags to the tag field.

While you're there, if anything else is amiss, please take the time to clean that up as well.

    I assume you mean "edit the question title [to remove the tags], adding any appropriate tags [to the tag field]", correct? Jan 8, 2015 at 9:54
  • I do try and edit when I see things wrong I just wanted to ensure I wasn't aware of some new requirement. You confirmed my suspicion though that it was wrong. Jan 8, 2015 at 9:57
  • @NathanTuggy Yes, I can edit to clarify.
