Great! Thanks for getting this started! –  Monica Cellio Apr 19 '12 at 16:01
    
Let's mark them off or remove them from the bare list as we incorporate them into answers, to make it easier to see what's left. Ok with you? –  Monica Cellio Apr 19 '12 at 16:50
    
@MonicaCellio, sounds like a plan. (Marking them might be better than removing them until all are placed, as perhaps some will need to be in two places in the hierarchy.) –  msh210 Apr 19 '12 at 16:59
    
I've reordered it alphabetically in case that's more useful; feel free to revert. –  msh210 Apr 19 '12 at 17:57
    
@MonicaCellio: When sorting, I didn't add any asterisks. Sorry for dropping them: I didn't realize. Certainly rollback's fine. –  msh210 Apr 19 '12 at 21:46
    
Great, thanks -- wasn't going to try to parse that diff. :-) I'll roll back the edited list manually, since you also made some other changes to the question that I don't want to lose. Thanks for all your work on this! –  Monica Cellio Apr 19 '12 at 21:48
    
@MonicaCellio, and to you. –  msh210 Apr 19 '12 at 21:49
    
much more difficult to deal with a non-sorted list. I can probably sort it while retaining asterixes (asteri?) if nobody minds. –  HodofHod Apr 19 '12 at 21:53
    
@HodofHod, please feel free. Sorry the asterisks mess up sorting; I intentionally put them at the beginning to make scanning for unhandled tags easier, without considering the implications for the sorting script. :-) –  Monica Cellio Apr 19 '12 at 21:56
    
@MonicaCellio I can leave asteri on top. –  HodofHod Apr 19 '12 at 21:57
    
@MonicaCellio actually sorting left the asteri on top automatically, So that was actually easier. It's done now. –  HodofHod Apr 19 '12 at 22:11
    
@HodofHod, pre-existing asteri, anyway -- new ones will go with their tags. I'm ok with that. –  Monica Cellio Apr 19 '12 at 22:12
    
@MonicaCellio I can resort the list every once in a while, when I remember. Eventually, almost all of them should be asteried, of course. –  HodofHod Apr 19 '12 at 22:16

@HodofHod, and when they all are, then we can remove the list from the question. –  msh210 Apr 19 '12 at 22:16

I propose renaming this question: Tag Index, or: Index of Tags. –  Double AA Aug 27 '12 at 1:40

Don't tags with only one post get deleted after a year if no more posts are added? –  Double AA Jun 5 '12 at 5:55
    
@DoubleAA, I think so. Good thing we're adding them here, then, so they don't remain with one post. :-) –  msh210 Jun 5 '12 at 5:57
    
I'm not sure this list will inspire anything. We all know that we can ask about gemara and that every masechet gets a tag if it wants. Whether or not it has one already seems irrelevant. Same for the Tanach list. The other ones though can be useful for seeing which tags exist in the field you're asking about. –  Double AA Jun 5 '12 at 6:00

Perhaps we should do away with the Sefer tags. Are they really necessary? –  Baal Shemot Tovot Apr 19 '12 at 17:10
    
IMO we can be rid of them (for Chumash, not for Nach) if we retag all the questions that have them with the appropriate (and in some cases currently nonexistent) parasha tag instead. –  msh210 Apr 19 '12 at 17:26
    
@msh210 But what if I want to ask a general question on the book of Devarim, for example? Just use "chumash"? –  HodofHod Apr 19 '12 at 20:47
    
speaking of which, should there be ksuvim-writings tag? –  HodofHod Apr 19 '12 at 20:58
    
@HodofHod, none of the D'varim questions we have so far has been about the book in general. It's certainly conceivable (and more so for D'varim than for the first four), but I think the existence of the tag should await its utility. :-) –  msh210 Apr 19 '12 at 21:48
    
Should we also include, for example, [creation] under [parshat-bereishit]; [noach-noah-the-man] under [parshat-noach], etc? –  Scimonster Dec 2 at 12:41

(Huge undertaking, please help, criticize, etc.)


(Should be ordered according to Mishneh Torah. I'll try to do that)

Mada

Ahava

Zmanim

Kedusha

Haflaah

Zeraim

Avoda

Korbanot

Taharah

Nezikin

Kinyan

Mishpatim

Shoftim

@DoubleAA, this has changed it from being a list of mitzvos, to a list of categories of halachos. Not that that's bad, I like it! Thanks! –  HodofHod Apr 24 '12 at 5:09
    
What had you intended by mitzvot? –  Double AA Apr 24 '12 at 5:20
    
The Rambam (leshitatei!) counts 'din nachalot' as a mitzva for instance :) –  Double AA Apr 24 '12 at 5:20
    
@DoubleAA Not "estates-inheritance" for example. There are mitzvos involved, certainly, but the broad category is not one. –  HodofHod Apr 24 '12 at 5:21
    
Well, then Mishneh Torah might not have been such a good choice. The Rambam was quite thorough! –  Double AA Apr 24 '12 at 5:25
    
@DoubleAA, no, I think I like this idea better than mine –  HodofHod Apr 24 '12 at 5:27

It seems pretty much all of the Holidays section can be imported to here. –  Double AA Apr 24 '12 at 15:07
2  
@DoubleAA, maybe import by reference? I suspect we'll be better off with multiple (per-broad-topic) answers like are starting to evolve, rather than one humongous one, but others should speak up. (Also, not being fluent in Mishneh Torah, I wouldn't automatically know how to use its organization scheme -- happy to learn, but if it would involve splitting up the holidays so they're not in calendar order any more, that would make it harder for people like me. Though with luck MT does a better job of staying on-topic than the g'mara. :-) ) –  Monica Cellio Apr 24 '12 at 21:54
    
Should we add in subsections for each Halchot, or just leave it split by Sefer? –  Double AA Apr 26 '12 at 14:48
    
@HodofHod ^^^^^ –  Double AA Apr 26 '12 at 20:42
    
@DoubleAA you mean like making pidyon haben a sub-category of bechor, but still within Zeraim? Sure! –  HodofHod Apr 26 '12 at 21:53
    
@HodofHod No I mean now I just have Mada, Ahava, Zemanim... listed. Should I also put in Yesodei Hatorah, Deot, Talmud Torah, Avoda Zara, Teshuva, Tefilah...? –  Double AA Apr 26 '12 at 22:15
    
@DoubleAA I think so, it will make it a little bit easier to read, I think. –  HodofHod Apr 26 '12 at 22:21
    
@HodofHod The problem is it leads to a lot of repetition. For instance, agriculture will get listed many different times in Zeraim. –  Double AA Apr 26 '12 at 23:24

Not sure if this is useful at all, or if the nuschaos tags should go elsewhere, but:

Probably to split off into another answer:

Perhaps under am-yisrael should also go (kohen, levi, yisroel), and (orthodox, conservative, reform). –  HodofHod Apr 19 '12 at 21:16

This completes my first pass through the whole tag list looking for time/season/yomtov-related tags. Note that I'm not consuming the "see also"s; they're just there for reference. Corrections always welcome, of course! –  Monica Cellio Apr 24 '12 at 17:19
    
Maybe omit purim-torah-in-jest because we don't want people to use it? –  msh210 Apr 25 '12 at 22:54
    
@msh210, that's fine with me. –  Monica Cellio Apr 26 '12 at 2:17
    
Is there any reason why four-parshiot and parshat-zachor are included in Pesach rather than Purim? Their laws are mentioned in the Shulchan Aruch before the laws of Purim, and they start before Purim and end after Purim and before Pesach. –  b a Jan 8 '13 at 5:42
    
@ba, good point, especially zachor (since it has its own tag). I initially learned them as "four special parshiyot leading up to Pesach" so that's probably why I did this, but I agree with you and will fix. –  Monica Cellio Jan 8 '13 at 15:13
