The following questions have been posted:
- Local special ingredients on Cape Cod (tagged local, recommendation; just posted)
- Ingredients: Danish local specials (tagged untagged, meaning original tags were removed)
- Ingredients: Icelandic local specials (tagged resources)
These questions seem extremely broad, especially the latest one which alternates between discussing ingredients and flat-out asking for recipe recommendations. I want to say that they appear to be useful despite their wide scope, but that's not really supported by the numbers; the original "local specials" questions have been around since 2011 and have only been viewed about 160 times total. Statistically, these just aren't topics people search for.
So, my questions to you are:
Should we just close these? They're borderline/off-topic and low traffic, so I think we would need a compelling reason not to close them.
If anyone is vehemently against closing them, how would you propose to tag them? Clearly, tagging these questions has always been a problem, which is why we have one question with a nonsensical tag, one with no real tags, and one that resulted in two new tags getting created today just for that question. There is no way that either a local or recommendation tag is going to survive the day; what can it be replaced with that isn't a meta tag?
