I recently discovered that we have a for when the OP need to request something from someone else.

When I talked about it in chat, someone got confused and thought that the tag was for "I have a request for IPS, please answer my question". This person then suggested to rename for which will match your other tag like , , etc...

So, do you think we should rename this tag? And, more generally, do you think we should rename tags so that they end in "-ing" if possible (obviously won't work for tags like ,, etc...)?

    @avazula Yeap, that's my new hobby :P – Ael Dec 6 '18 at 9:26
  • Also, this confusion should be cleared up in the tag excerpt and de tag usage guidelines. I personally think that requests is much clearer than requesting. – JAD Dec 6 '18 at 9:43
  • @JAD I edited, is that still understandable? Also, you might want to write an answer instead of a comment – Ael Dec 6 '18 at 9:46

    If, for some reason we do want our tags to follow a verb-ing format, may I suggest making-requests instead? – JAD Dec 6 '18 at 9:46
  • @JAD Nice, I like your idea! – Ael Dec 6 '18 at 9:47
  • I still don't think we should, but I really dislike requesting as a word/tag. It just sounds weird. – JAD Dec 6 '18 at 9:48
  • I would second making-requests over requesting. Requesting is... weird. It's not verbage that is used very often, so I think 'making requests' sounds a bit more natural and intuitive. Especially when comparing to a tag like making-friends, this seems acceptable. – Jess K. Dec 7 '18 at 14:51
  • @JessK. since I agree,I edited accordingly – Ael Dec 7 '18 at 14:53
