We have over 1000 questions concerned with the topic of mining, yet the number of tags that further distinguish questions in that realm is pretty small:

mining, mining-pools, cgminer, miner, bfgminer, asicminer, pooled-mining, solo, diablominer, webminer, primeminer, mining-pool

A while back, there was a proposal for a "mining-related" stackexchange, which argued that our SE does not cater to that topic well enough.

Further related tags such as litecoin, gpu, asic, hashing, profitability, scrypt, and cpu essentially act as meta-tags for mining in those questions.

What do you think about introducing tags such as:

  • scrypt-mining
  • sha256d-mining
  • mining-performance
  • cpu-mining
  • asic-mining
  • mining-profitability

Would they be beneficial for users to properly distinguish mining related topics to follow?

What other terms are commonly used on Bitcoin related platforms to talk about questions on mining?

What tags should we introduce in order to better cater to the miners?

  • Also, some of the already existing tags should be merged. – 4276 May 19 '14 at 15:22
  • I'm open to suggestions, make it an answer! ;) – Murch May 19 '14 at 15:31

Of these already existing tags:

mining, mining-pools, cgminer, miner, bfgminer, asicminer, pooled-mining, solo, diablominer, webminer, primeminer, mining-pool

I suggest merging mining-pools, mining-pool, and pooled-mining.

They seem like exactly the same things to me.

As for suggesting other tags, I will have to do some research and make an edit later.

  • I no longer think "mining-pools" and "pooled-mining" are the same thing. Pooled mining is what you do, while mining pools is where you do it. – 4276 Mar 17 '16 at 18:26
