So a user wants to use a tool/material/whatever in a very odd way or has a task that requires something out of the norm. I thought it would be good to categorize these. I had used "weird-ideas" but I guess it wasn't liked.

So maybe "out-of-the-box" or "unconventional" or something else? If not useful (I think it is) it is certainly interesting to see these labeled in one place.

These are meta tags and as such aren't welcome on the site.

The main thing to consider is that:

If the tag can’t work as the only tag on a question, it’s probably a meta-tag. Every tag you use should be able to work, more or less, as the only tag on a question. Meta-tags, like [beginner], [subjective], and [best-practices], are useless by themselves — they tell you nothing at all about the content of the question.

  • Maybe I am confused because I see tags like "tips". Don't see how tips and unconventional are different. Actually unconventional tells me something. Just one example. – DMoore Aug 23 '13 at 3:50

    @DMoore - "tips" is also a meta tag. – ChrisF Aug 23 '13 at 7:38
