I think SE user interface has a mechanism to display a disclaimer of warning when adding a tag thats highly abused.

If so then could we ask for a disclaimer for CAD tags saying something to the effect:

"CAD software questions are not generally ontopic, so make sure your post clarfies how the question is about graphic design!".

Do you think this would make sense? and if not why?

    There are 0 questions tagged [CAD]. I don't see how this would help: graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/cad

    @PieBie Well there is [autocad], [solidworks], [autodesk-fusion-360], [autodesk-inventor],[catia]... all of which are CAD applications. Just because they arent tagged CAd does not mean most of these questions arent CAD related

  • @joojaa: Fair enough, shows how little I know about this software. Tbh, I have no idea whether this is possible on our site, and how to implement this. Will have to confer with other mods/staff on how to do this. IF there is consensus in the community that this is needed, and the regular help/explanation text of a tag is not sufficient.

I think such a thing would be very helpful for both CAD questions and Video questions.

In most instances, comments merely tell the user where to go look for an answer. As opposed to the questions garnering direct answers here.
