One of my edits adding jurisdiction information to a question's text was rejected. The reason given (by a moderator) was:
Jurisdiction is indicated by tags, not by an explicit comment in the text of the question.
However, I could find no such policy in the help center. There are some questions discussing this problem (How do we handle localization of questions/answers? , Should the jurisdictional state be part of the title? ) but the answers do not indicate any clear consensus to me.
Personally, I always found that tags are for classifying questions, and that all relevant information should be in the question text (even if there is a tag on the question), because it makes questions easier to read and answer. But I'm ready to follow community consensus - if I can find what it is :-).
Is there a general consensus how country/jurisdiction should be indicated?
- In the question body?
- With a tag?
- Or both?
If there is such a policy/consensus, could it be incorporated into the FAQ? This is probably relevant for almost every question, so it would be good to provide the information where it's easy to find.
