There are currently about 50 questions containing the words “leveling” or “levelling”. I think it would be helpful to unify them with a tag, but I can't find an appropriate one. Further, several of these questions are tagged with [heated-bed] without being about heating, which is somewhat misleading.

Bed leveling is an area in which one may accrue distinct expertise, and as such I would like to suggest a [bed-leveling] tag to help experts find and answer questions. The spelling with a single “l” is the more common spelling used on the site and also that used in Marlin's documentation. The tag's ambit could encompass:

  1. Mechanical bed-leveling such as manual adjustment of screws and springs
  2. Software bed-leveling like the G29 G-Code command
  3. General Z-axis measurement with a mechanical or inductive probe

The tag could also be applied post-facto to questions about printing problems like poor-adhesion, should the solution be found to involve bed calibration.

There is no tag created for leveling (or levelling, or bed-leveling for that matter). So, I would recommend taking some of your top search results for leveling, of your results, if any have available tags (not all 5 tags have been used) then add/created the [bed-leveling] tag.

Overall, this is a good catch on potentially improving the tagging here on 3DPrinting SE.

  • $\begingroup$ @IanMackinnon I just added the bed-leveling tag, so it should be available now. Happy editing! :) $\endgroup$

As confirmed by this comment under the other answer, there is now a tag, so this meta question should now be marked as:

  1. having an accepted answer, to remove it from the unanswered questions list, and;
  2. status complete (which has just been done)
