The current wiki excerpt for terminology states:
Defining, explaining or finding terms used for the tools, materials or techniques used in crafting.
technique-identification does not currently have any description but it should be easy to infer what it is for.
terminology is more encompassing by definition though. I had originally considered it to cover questions looking for a definition (or clarification) of a term or terms as seen in these
I could see argument favouring its current use on these types of identification questions:
- Is there a name for sand-clay mixture?
- What is the name of Japanese printing which uses hammered leaves on white cloth?
There are other examples of both cases. Some of which have both of the tags in question.
Is terminology being used correctly in all the above cases? As of this moment it is a tag on all of the above linked questions. Assuming that it is being used correctly (by its current definition I think it is) then I think technique-identification should be dropped in favor of it.
If we think that terminology is being used in a overly broad sense perhaps we need to amend the wiki except and edit the wiki for technique-identification so their respective usages will be made clear.
I think some retagging is in order either way but I am not 100% certain what action we should take in this.
