We didn't have a way of marking civil law (as opposed to criminal law) questions before today, and we'd mapped the civil-law tag to those questions relating to Civil Law (as opposed to common law).
I've made civil-legal-system the tag for questions relating to Civil Law for now, and the excerpt for civil-law now clearly refers to non-criminal law. (I moved existing Civil Law questions to the civil-legal-system tag before I did this, of course.)
This is a reasonably bold change, despite the fact that the Civil Law tag had only three questions tagged with it, and it seems like it would be prudent to have a non-criminal law tag. There is the civil-procedure tag, but I don't think that's exactly what we'd want.
So, I guess, I want to know if:
- I'm right and civil-procedure questions would be significantly different from questions that are just about non-criminal law;
- Whether there's a better tag for civil-legal-system, that makes the difference clear. We obviously have tag excerpts to guide usage, but I couldn't think of a more descriptive name that would help organise questions as well.
Also, if you're proposing new tags, it might be helpful for us to see a tag wiki excerpt, so we can see how users might use them.
