First, I just want to say I'm really impressed with the user community at drupal.stackexchange.com, and I had a follow-on question to the many posts about creating tags.
I chair a Drupal group (http://commons.esipfed.org/collaboration-area/drupal-working-group) for a virtual organization, Earth Science Information Partners (http://esipfed.org/), comprised of Drupal developers across NASA, NOAA, NSF funded science projects. We are exploring ways we can ask Drupal questions of the larger Drupal community about issues that are relevant to our research projects. So far we've tried using Twitter and Google+ without much success in both getting answers but also keeping track of issues raised by our developers, and we really like this community here for its responsiveness and expertise.
So, we are looking to track the issues created by our members, durpal.stackexchange has the infrastructure and critical mass to support Q&A and knowledge sharing, and tagging issues seems an obvious way to keep track of science-related questions.
My question is, is it considered misuse of tags by drupal.stackexchange to have a community-based tag like #science-on-drupal? Before going off and creating one, we wanted to be good citizens of the Stack Exchange community and be respectful of this community use of tags.
Any advice, or alternatives, you can offer would be much appreciated!
