This is based in part on a chat message I wrote on Thursday, which I'm now acting on (ignore the linked question).
Some sites on Stack Exchange allow, in some form or another, resource recommendations, using one or more of the following tags:
You get the idea.
We currently have the software-recommendations tag (and Stack Exchange also has Software Recommendations Stack Exchange, and Hardware Recommendations Stack Exchange may enter private beta soon), and we have the worldbuilding-resources tag, so recommending worldbuilding resources works on Worldbuilding Stack Exchange. However, I'd like to take it a step further, and suggest that more resource recommendations be on topic, specifically
- website-recommendations (Site for online custom map with tags or labels is really one of these, not a software-recommendations question; the same goes for Best platform for collaborative worldbuilding)
- resource-recommendations as a catch-all for the rest, if there is anything that doesn't fit in the above two tags, software-recommendations or [tag:worldbuilding resources]
As such, I'm working on a trial question to test the waters.
Should we have resource recommendation questions? If so, what should the limits be?
The relevant precedent question is Are software recommendation questions on topic?; When are software-recommendation questions on topic? is also relevant and based on Are Wikis the only solution for creating online encyclopedias? [closed].
