I've noticed that there is a trickle of questions on AVP where the asker is not sure what a thing is, or is used for, and asks for more information. The most recent example is this question about a DAW (which turns out to be Logic 9).
I added the 'whatisthis' tag, but the next edit recommended removing it. I'd like to discuss creating a 'whatisthis' tag, and then retroactively tagging questions of this form.
- A class of basic questions are grouped together
- People interested in browsing basic concepts and equipment can do so
- People with a broad range of experience with A/V gear can browse the archives and enhance the answers
- Askers are unlikely to use the tag themselves, so it will almost always have to be retroactively added
