Jul 30 '19 at 4:23 comment added nate It is understandable why someone may be truly curious to identity a given rock and/or mineral and use this site as a means of acquiring a usable answer. To that end, most such questions are indeed very cluttering to this StackExchange account. If possible, all such identification questions should be tagged properly, consolidated, and masked by one link from the seemingly smaller, more interesting geology/geophysics questions that are out there for us to find, answer, or learn from. I'm not sure if this is workable solution, but I'd like to see identification questions hidden or reduced.

Jul 24 '19 at 19:56 comment added Spencer I suppose that if there's going to be a mass purge of questions based on a tag, then we need to go re-tag the few we know of that are more than just "what's this rock in my picture".

Jul 19 '19 at 11:42 comment added gerrit Mod I added the featured tag to this question to get more exposure. The proposal has my sympathy but as a potentially major step it needs careful consideration, so let's discuss it for at least two weeks to see if there are objections.

Jul 19 '19 at 11:29 comment added user12525 This would not be a trouble at sites as worldbuilding, but how much geologists with +500 rep daily visiting the site are available to close (by technical reasons) those questions?

Jul 19 '19 at 10:42 comment added Gimelist @jeffB indeed. I know a lot about identifying rocks, and I got tired of reviews. I'm sick of seeing the same thing over and over again. These questions are slowly turning ES.SE into a wasteland.
Jul 19 '19 at 4:24 comment added jeffB On a possibly-related topic, I've been prompted twice now to help review questions that are candidates for being closed. Every. Single. One. of them was "Help identify this rock". After clicking through ten or twelve (each time), I gave up; I don't know much about identifying rocks, and I don't know what makes a good or bad rock-id question, so I don't feel like I should contribute an opinion on those questions. But they essentially constitute a denial-of-service attack against any Earth Science questions on which I could offer an opinion.
