Some (La)TeX answers indicate load sequence preferences. Is there a tag for those questions?

  • Because the tag goes with the question, not the answer, I'm seeing another layer to the issue. The Q'or may not know of that issue. The load-order info shows up in the Answers. Thus, something current along this line may be a solution: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/1863/… Maybe a Comment with simply 'load order' will suffice so as to find those discussions readily (as if "tagged"). Is there a Community-approved preference? – Saphar Koshet Oct 5 at 16:23

That I know of, this area has not had enough questions for someone to tag questions in a useful way. Tags are 'dynamic' in the sense anyone can tag questions as they like. So there is nothing to stop people using or similar.

"answers indicate" is the wrong approach. Tags belong to the question and should not be added because one of the answers discovers a problem or uses a special package.

Therefor the suggested edits

have been rightfully rejected.

Otherwise we end up with pervert situations like https://tex.stackexchange.com/posts/443821/revisions where a tag is added to a question just because one in five answers uses it.

  • This confirms the follow-up comment to the Q. So, we just leave the pernicious "load order" issue as a research project for the newbies and experienced alike, or we use the comment section to render the issue a bit more findable? – Saphar Koshet Oct 8 at 12:46
  • Further study and discussion indicates that "load order" is more document-specific than general. That being the case, there's no "general" tag or commenting that's going to provide much in the way of assistance. – Saphar Koshet Oct 8 at 14:32
