I think instead of simply having Organic Chemistry as a tag we should subdivide it into separate ones.
For beginners, the tags Aldol, Bayer-Villiger etc. could be used.
What do you think ?
I'm not so sure if we should have tags for specific reactions, however aldol is quite broad with wide applications (and thus a wide range of questions) so that one makes sense.
Creating tags for the subfields of OC seems like a better idea to me.
But we ought to only create tags if there are a large number of questions (or we can see that there will be a large number of questions) for that topic. Anything with 6-ish questions or more at this stage seems tag worthy to me.
For beginners, the tags Aldol, Bayer-Villiger [...]
Why not tags for Bischler-Napieralski, Pictet-Spengler and Pommeranz-Fritsch then? ;)
Tags for name reactions are probably not the best idea ever - unless we'd like to end up with a tag list that looks like the combined phone books of Berlin and Tokyo ;)
Sub tags inspired by March's Advanced Organic Chemistry aren't an option either. I mean: Who will use Alkylidene-de-oxo-bisubstitution as a tag?
When subtagging according to the functional groups involved, which one is relevant for a transformation? Starting material, product(s), all of them?
Maybe we should just relax until the questions reach the 5,000 mark.
