Today I went to writing a few tag wikis as I do every once in a while. I found the diet tag and suggested an edit. dot_Sp0t had a closer look at the tag and we discussed what to do with it. Basically I will summarize the chat here:
- diet is rarely used - a handful of views on the tag (probably me and dot), 3 questions in total, one of them closed
- seems to be similar to nutrition, another small tag with 4 questions, 2 of which are closed, one of them also being tagged with diet
- there is a food tag whose tag wiki excerpt reads
For questions about sources and types of nutrition for a living organism.
The tag wiki reads:
This tag should be used for all questions about sustenance for creatures. This includes natural sources of food, like plants and animals that can be eaten by a given creature, as well as processed food. It also includes the process of acquiring sources of food and processing food.
This tag is often used in conjunction with the biology tag and tags describing the creature or method in question.
What is the community consensus? Do we need the tags diet and nutrition or can we just go ahead and remove both of them and replace them with food where the questions are not already tagged with food?
