The tag has been used most of the time for questions about the concept. For example:

Looking for daf yomi app recommendations

Preparing to learn daf yomi Yerushalmi

Daf Yomi Scheduling for Shabbos, Yom Tov, and Sundays

On the other hand, it was also used for a question on the actual daf:

Kohanim on first shift can't say Shema'?

Which is the intended purpose of the tag?

1 Answer 1


I don't know about intended, but I support your first category. The latter category is no better at telling you what's in the question than the tag .

    I agree, and I think that the intent (which is the useful one) is pretty clear from all but one of the usages. I retagged the one that apparently made the other assumption to not include the tag and proposed a tag wiki.

  • What about for questions asked about the daf of the day? Or about the system of daf yomi. Aren't there Devarim tags and Parashat Hashavua tags, both, as well? Commented Aug 6, 2012 at 15:43

    @AdamMosheh , questions about the content of any daf should be tagged with talmud-gemara and/or the relevant tractate tag. Questions about the Daf Yomi system should be tagged daf-yomi.
