We occasionally get adventure/encounter/setting/campaign recommendation questions that are asking for a subjective evaluation, not just objectively-identifiable features. They're infrequent enough that we can sorta overlook them regarding our *-recommendation policy, but present a bit of a tagging problem even so. Should we tag these somehow as rec-policy questions?
Relatedly, we've had a few recommendation-questions that aren't for systems, but are getting the system-recommendation tag applied to flag that they're definitely subject to our *-recommendation policy. This is useful to us old hands, but it's confusing, counter-intuitive, and (most importantly to me) non-discoverable for the people actually asking these questions. By my entirely unrigorous estimation, people looking for recs are more likely to be new users, and it's an especially weird hoop to deal with as a new user.
Should we have a general [recommendation] tag?
It's how we're currently using the sys-rec tag. On the other hand, as soon as I typed that I got an "ew, that feels like a meta tag" reaction. My reaction might be completely unreasonable though, so I thought best to bring the question here.
FYI, the question that was the last straw for me is Recommend a published encounter for 4e to demo its strengths to newbies! When I edited it, I couldn't bring myself to add the system-recommendation tag because it really, really doesn't make sense, yet the *-recommendation policy really should apply to this question.
Last but not least at all, is this actually a problem? Or are my delicate editorial sensibilities just being delicately offended?
