For one, we should implement a tag warning for homework questions:
- Tag-related error messages and warnings, regex-based (seen with custom error text in screenshot 4, with the default text on screenshot 5, and with a tag warning here).
We had a round of proposals for tag warnings
last year two years ago three years ago (bloody hell, time flies) five years ago, but they don't seem to be in effect as of now.
For the specific case of homework, I would propose something along the lines of
Is your question homework, or about a specific exercise?
- This is not a homework-help site
- Please read these guidelines carefully
- Homework questions should focus on the concepts that you don't understand
but this is maybe something to be worked out on a separate thread.
The same should probably be true of the rest of the proposed tag warnings from the previous round -- there's plenty of important stuff there, but the wordings for the warnings themselves are maybe not going to be as effective at communicating "STOP and please read" to new users as we would want them to be.
