There is a huge potential in this site that lies in the same premise that made Stack Overflow one of the largest sites on the 'net — it united all the world's
Programmers Engineers regardless of discipline or field. I can see "Engineering SE" becoming the Next Big Thing™ if we are steadfast in that same goal.
So to appeal to all the world's engineers — don't forget to tag your questions with a field of engineering (where applicable) That way this site is more than one big pile of… stuff, and folks educated in these disciplines can frequent the tags they are most able to contribute. These tags serve much the same purpose as the language tags on Stack Overflow. Having to read every question to find things I can answer will not scale. Tags are a great way to organize content even when we surpass 10s or even 100s of thousands of questions (but we're shooting for millions).
Let's get in this habit now. If you ask a question, be sure to tag it with some field of engineering (where applicable). If the tag is missing, add it. Of course, there will always be exceptions (engineering-agnostic questions) but in general, the engineering tags should become the largest tags on the site.
*-engineeringtags seems a little redundant, but I suppose a tag like
mechanicalwould be somewhat unclear compared to
