We've decided to prohibit wood-identification questions, but we're using the wood-identification to help people identify an appropriate type of wood given some desired application or properties.
I think it makes sense to make broader use of wood-selection instead for this purpose, and after further discussion I'm leaning toward adding wood-species, as well. What we do with wood-identification is up in the air, but here are a few options:
- Make wood-identification a synonym of wood-selection
- Create wood-species and make wood-identification a synonym of wood-species
- Rename wood-identification to wood-species and ban the use of wood-identification
My thought with wood-species is that it can be used in the same way we currently use wood-identification, but the name will not imply that "What kind of wood is in this picture?" questions are allowed. Meanwhile, wood-selection will be a slightly more specific tag.
What does everyone else think about the two new proposed tags, and what should we do with wood-identification?
