Mi Yodeya caters to two distinct populations: those who give questions that show some good research and demand sophisticated answers, and those who ask basic questions and want simple answers. A tag can help discriminate between the two groups.
I would like to discuss ideas for a new tag aimed at extremely basic questions. I am referring to questions about a straight-out halacha (like According to Jewish law, may a women wear men's clothing?), foundations of Jewish belief (how do Jews pray?), and other questions that show minimal background.
The tag would serve several purposes. It would enable interested parties to follow these questions. These questions are also different enough from the scholarly questions to be viewed in their own section. And it would also remind people to give appropriately basic answers to such basic questions.
Since most of these questions are asked by new users with minimal knowledge of tagging, I want to see if the community can agree on a Tag and protocol for tagging these questions when they show up in the Review panel.
