Is there anything about that cannot be covered by and/or the pertinent masechet tags?

There are under 60 questions, many of which are already tagged under other Gemara tags.

Note: I'm not asking about , as it is a different format than the Bavli, and as such can have different types of questions.


Perhaps the one to get rid of is . Questions that address Talmud generally mostly actually address Bavli generally. Any questions that address both Bavli and Yerushalmi can tag them both, which makes sense, as they're two distinct bodies of work.

    With a gemara synonym pointing to Bavli (as that's the way to bet)? Do we have questions in talmud-gemara that are about the talmud(s) generally -- rules of derivation, history, etc? (I haven't reviewed the ~60 questions on the tag.) Jun 26 '14 at 1:19

  • @MonicaCellio Perhaps judaism.stackexchange.com/q/40517/5151 and judaism.stackexchange.com/q/37828/5151 just to name a couple.

  • @msh210 oops, you're right -- I picked up the number from the question but that's another tag. Jun 26 '14 at 16:00
  • @Scimonster also judaism.stackexchange.com/q/10873/472, which I think is "of a type", not a unique case, but I haven't gone looking further. (I just happen to remember this one. :-) ) Jun 26 '14 at 16:01
  • @Scimonster 40517 I suspect was intended by its asker to be about the Bavli only; 37828 is not about Talmud at all, and should be tagged only amoroim and tannaim; and 10873 is not about Talmud specifically (e.g. it's about Sifre also) and shouldn't be so tagged. Just my opinions.

  • @msh210 40517 seemed to be referring to both to me. 37828 sounds like you're right. While 10873 might also refer to Sifre, it does ask about Talmud.

  • Since I've never studied Yerushalmi (except, IIRC, for a short digression there in daf yomi), when I ask a question about the talmud I have no idea if it applies to both. I suspect I'm not the only one. So "just tag both" probably won't produce consistent results. Oct 12 '14 at 16:47

Rethinking this now... both are actually appropriate tags. and refer to two separate works, and can be tagged as such.

There are actually several questions for which is wholly appropriate, for example (to list a few):

The only thing now is to clean up the tag a bit and remove questions that only apply to a certain part of the talmud.
