I just checked the tag info for , which is basically a copy of the C++ tag info from Stack Overflow.

I though that was a bit of a waste. Have we had any thoughts about using this specifically for Code Review?

We could put common issues and deviations from standard idioms.

That way we don't have to mention the same thing every time. We could have a boilerplate that we add to the top of new questions with crosses that apply to normal failures and an expansive section on the tag info section on what should be done and why.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @RubberDuck: I was definitely thinking about other tags than C++. We have so few repeat situations that it would never really apply :-) \$\endgroup\$ Jul 27, 2015 at 23:57
  • \$\begingroup\$ You mean I shouldn't include stdio? =;)- Seriously though, right now I'm thinking of adding a section to VBA about not using Activate/Select. \$\endgroup\$
