I think that a tag and tag should be added. This question (Windows 8 and Ubuntu Dual-boot: Many duplicates) could use these tags as well as many other meta questions.

Tag uses and definitions:

Concern: This tag is for questions that are asking about a concern for Ask Ubuntu. Users concerned about specific issues may use this tag.

Quality: This tag indicates a question about question, answer, comment, or Stack Exchange quality. Users asking questions about improving their questions may use this tag.

  • How can I improve this question to receive up-votes? What do you suggest @mateo? Jun 21, 2013 at 19:34
  • oh, meta is slightly diffrent than the main site, as votes on this question are in support/against the feature-request, not denoting quality of the question(also on meta rep dosn't matter)

  • expanding the use cases may help, or if you feal more strongly about one tag you might seperate the tag requests, so we might explore both in greater detail.

  • @mateo At this point, I am afraid that doing so would cost me more reputation points. I have flagged this question for deletion. Jun 21, 2013 at 19:53
  • meta questions/answers have no effect on rep... voting is pure agree/disagree.

We usually don't end up using tags like concern because these are usually ubiquitous, and can be applied almost anywhere. Much like the tag on the main site everyone has a concern/problem, the more important thing is what the concern is about.

Also on meta there is a small sub-set of required tags, of which one must be included.

Some alternatives to "quality" may be better to put a tag that is in line with why there is aquestion of quality, downvotes, close reasons, editing, translation, ect.
