I was thinking that there may be some important tags that are missing in Law meta and I wonder how/if I can help rectify that to some extent.
Specifically, I'm wondering if there is a set process to go about proposing tags (and if so, what it is) or do I just add them when someone has a question and its missing the appropriate tags (likely because they couldn't add it because it didn't exist). For example, I just added one for regulations, and proposed an excerpt for that specific term. Under this tag, in the U.S., the CFR is the database (or series of volumes in book form) that holds all federal regs. There are similar codifications or regulatory schemes in other countries that are compiled. This could all be under the tag regulatory and then the county (jurisdictional) tag should be put in.
Also, I'm new to these type of sites that are community edited (I had no idea what a tag wiki even was until about 10 minutes ago), so I cannot help but wonder if the tags are what leads to search-ability or if the words within the text of the questions/answers trigger results.
I apologize if this is already on here or should be obvious. I looked (albeit briefly) and didn't find anything specifically (although I did see inquiry and discussion about usefulness, synonyms, organization, editing and excerpting of tags, but not actually adding or proposing new ones in some systemic way.
Ideally, each area of law would have a tag as civil litigation (or civil law or civil suit - all encompass many various distinct areas of law like contracts, land transactions, torts, and variety of other things that may be important terms and concepts to have in order to grow this topic area. I'd be happy to suggest some if it is as easy as that.
Thanks for all of your anticipated patience and input.
