Proposal: Meta Tags

As I've seen that there're help tags used on SO (constantly pushed in their PHP chat), I could imagine that we use something similar, but a bit reworked:

enter image description here

A list of new meta-tags, that have a tag wiki, explaining what's wrong. Imagine a new user visiting her/his question again and finding out that there was an edit. Hopefully the new user clicks the tag and finds himself on a page where the tag wiki gives guidance on what to do next. (Maybe along side a downvote as a reminder).

  • Please provide additional information. A task alone is too less.
  • Please show us what you've tried so far and where you struggle.
  • Please show us the code. If you posted a link to your code, etc.
  • ...

I think we could give this a try. Instead of commenting the same thing over and over again, we can file tag edits. Users will see that there was an edit when they visit the question again (new avatar, edit time, etc.) and maybe click the link. The tag description might be a nice reminder that we can rework over and over again without the help of the SE team.
