While writing my previous question I realized that "Musical Practice and Performance" has a really low number of tags. I wanted to know how I can request the site administrators to suggest some new tags that to be added. I also cannot find a tag for this question too as it is a feature request.

So I am tagging some random tags.

http://meta.music.stackexchange.com is the place for questions about this site.

You can create new tags yourself after you reach 150 reputation points. But tags come about after the question, not just to fill-in a vacant category. If you need a tag desperately for your question and cannot wait until 300, you can flag the question and ask that a moderator add the tag for you.

Go to https://music.stackexchange.com/privileges to check where you're at.

I want to re-stress this: having a low number of tags is absolutely fine.

As @luser says - do not add tags for the sake of it. A problem on other sites is tag overload - and we need to regularly clean up and remove tags.

    Yep - but unused isn't the problem. Badly used is.

  • Tags can be used badly even if they are low in numbers.

    Exactly - that is my point, Aura

    @Aura, certainly true, but the the particular form of "badly used" that results in 1-2 questions per tag is harder to clean up. Aug 23, 2012 at 15:38
