Is it a good idea to tag questions with [robotics] or [electronics]?

Or should only the [robotics] tag be used, and all other questions assumed to be electronics?

Or should we adopt a system like on meta, where at least one tag MUST be specified.

I don't see a point to an electronics tag, when every question on the site is (at least indirectly) related to electronics.

    \$\begingroup\$ I'm not sure why Robotics is even in the title. It's just a sub-field of electronics, no? Or is this site for mechanical engineering questions, now, too? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ I agree that the Robotics title should be dropped from the title. However, Rocketmagnet makes some good arguments about the breadth of field that Robotics encompasses beyond electronics here: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/59408 but and here: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/2582/robooverflow/59414#59414 , although I don't think that all of those issues are on topic. \$\endgroup\$ Sep 29, 2010 at 20:31
