As was until recently indicated on its wiki, the tag is unproductive. Now that it is an empty tag, the wiki warning not to use it is gone. I want to request that it be blacklisted.


The original wiki read:

PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS TAG. It's too vague: most questions, if not all, on this site have to do with Torah.

You might mean…

  • — the Jewish Bible
  • — the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Bible, Genesis through Deuteronomy)
  • — the study of religious texts (including as-yet unwritten ones)
  • — the scroll on which the Pentateuch is written
  • — the public reading of that scroll
  • — religious texts (including as-yet unwritten ones) not included in the Bible

…or something else

I've destroyed the tag, and I'll blacklist it, but I need a more succinct chunk of text to show to folks that attempt to use it.

Something like:

Please don't use the 'torah' tag, as it's not very descriptive or useful for searching. Instead, use torah-reading, oral-torah, or torah-study instead. Don't worry, tags can be changed later if needed.

What are the top, say .. 3 tags someone probably wanted to use instead?

Update: Added!

    The text you have looks fine. I'd recommend listing pentateuch-chumash, sefer-torah, and torah-study. – Isaac Moses Aug 28 '14 at 13:03

    I would add Tanach. Thanks! – Y     e     z Aug 28 '14 at 18:39
  • @IsaacMoses I would have suggested parshanut, sefer torah, and torahstudy – Double AA Aug 28 '14 at 22:00
  • I'd be fine with substituting @YeZ' tanach for pentateuch-chumash, which isn't used much. I agree with DoubleAA that parshanut-torah-comment belongs as well. Could you put four? If so, I'd recommend: tanach, parshanut-torah-comment, sefer-torah, and torah-study. – Isaac Moses Jan 26 '15 at 5:45
  • I guess you didn't blacklist it? judaism.stackexchange.com/q/54011 uses it. From the above, I'd suggest the following text: Please don't use the 'torah' tag, as it's not very descriptive or useful for searching. Perhaps use tanach, parshanut-torah-comment, sefer-torah, or torah-study instead. Don't worry, tags can be changed later if needed. – msh210 Feb 17 '15 at 7:57
  • There are now 4 questions with the tag. Can you double check the blacklist-ing? – Double AA Feb 25 '15 at 3:38

    All gone now. This time for sure. :-) – Monica Cellio Mar 27 '15 at 15:50

    @Shog9 Thank you! But the new text (according to its screenshot here) has "instead" twice, redundantly. – msh210 Mar 27 '15 at 22:19
  • Fixed, @msh210 – Shog9 Apr 4 '15 at 18:28
  • @Shog9, thanks! – msh210 Apr 6 '15 at 3:06
