Welcome to stage 2 of our tag challenge! Stage 1 was very successful so we decided to keep going, with a few slight changes.

The tags:

At the end of the two weeks:


To be fair, the great winner of this challenge is the , that received - both by new questions and retagging - a push of 34 questions towards the 200-mark. and were a lot slower, but it's worth noting that is a very specific topic. Nonetheless, it has generated some good questions and discussion in the site.

Congratulations to our winner: NofP who used two of the tags and linked their question with the writing exercise.

Honourable mentions to: celtschk who was able to combine two of the proposed tags in one question, and Liquid who asked two questions with one tag each.

You are all deserving of your sacks of bragging rights, use them wisely.

We'll come back shortly with another set of tags, so stay in touch! The new tag challenge is now up!



  • The contest runs for two weeks, Monday 12:01am to Sunday midnight. The day ends when StackExchange says it does.
  • Post a new question using one or more of the tags.
  • Update the answer to this post with your name, tag(s), and a link to the question.
  • You get one point for every question that, at the end of the challenge, is open, has one or more votes, and is correctly tagged.
  • Re-tagging old questions on these tags is encouraged but keep it at a reasonable rate. We don't want to flood the homepage.


  • One beautiful sack of bragging rights!
  • Two sacks if you use multiple tags in the same question.
  • A third if you manage to tie a question in to the latest writing exercise.


  • The contest started Monday? But it's Tuesday (Wednesday for some people)! Shush, it's the first week.
  • Can we use questions we've already posted that are within this challenge's boundaries? Yes.
  • The goal of this challenge is:
    • Increase overall question rates toward 10 questions per day.
    • Get us to the Generalist badge by having 40 tags with over 200 questions.
    • Promote tags that may otherwise be lost or forgotten.
  • Each fortnight we'll have thee tags to choose from; the tags are deliberately different from each other.
    • One tag will be a high popularity tag to increase participation in the challenge.
    • One tag will start the challenge between 100 and 200 questions to move us toward generalist.
    • One tag will be freely chosen by the challenge poster. Though tags from the new tab are encouraged.

    I like this version of the tag challenge. Thanks for doing it. May 28, 2019 at 13:58
  • Cool. I fixed one typo but I will note that you've changed this to a fortnight challenge but still say "week" a few time in the rules. Don't know if you want to change that.

    @linksassin I went ahead and wrote the results, but feel free to edit and make changes. If you don't have time, I can take over the challenge for next 2-weeks. Your call.

  • @MonicaCellio Can you please update the featured tags? Remove it from this question and the previous challenge and put it on the new one?

  • @linksassin done. (I hadn't noticed we'd missed updating the previous challenge, oops.) Jun 11, 2019 at 4:10
  • @MonicaCellio Thanks for doing that. I assume it just got missed since we took a week off.
