I just earned the create new tag privilege and this made me curious to check out the current NEW tags created. For my surprise I noticed that there are quite a few tags without description.

I know that a good tag name should "speak for it self" but how hard could it be to make a tag description?

Tags exist without descriptions, because the tag needs someone with the knowledge to fill in that data! The user asking/creating the tag might not always know the best way to describe the tag software.

If you're lower than a certain reputation, every tag wiki edit you submit gets you two reputation points, so you can take the initiative to help document all the tags!

    ok, understood! That is another great way to get users involved. I am new to this platform and keep getting amazed with how well and carefully thought it is! :-)
