re: We'll be adding more design and moderation clarity to tags like #help, #discuss, etc. We're also introducing a new badge! VIEW POST


I must admit that I have used both the #discuss tag and the #help tag on articles that I legitimately wanted people’s input on. However, it was also a traditional article in that it had a lot of content and I spent a lot of time researching the topic. So does that still fall within fair use of the #discuss tag?

In other words, do #discuss articles have to be title only (or extremely short)?

I only ask because:

  • if we want to make #discuss articles title only, then that’s an easy thing that can be enforced via the code. Or it could be enforced via a character limit?
  • also, I’m asking this question because if I misused the tags, I’m super duper sorry! 😢
