I looked around meta, and it seems this came up before. It seems there used to be such a tag, but it was removed for various reasons:

  • One reason is that it is 'meta' and describes the 'origin' of the puzzle rather than the content.
  • One reason is that low-quality/off-topic questions should be flagged/closed/deleted rather than tagged.

Might it not be possible to describe an origin-independent, quality-independent 'type' like here's a (usually 3x3) picture grid with a corner missing, and here's some more pictures, which one is supposed to fill in the blank? Such a thing isn't necessarily from an iq-test, nor is it necessarily low-quality.

Even if we don't call it , isn't there something taggable here, even for just specifically 3x3, it seems there are enough of them to justify their own tag, I think?

But I'm not really a meta user, and don't fully understand the previous history on meta of this issue.

  • $\begingroup$ Confession: my selfish reason is to put an ignore on it. This doesn't mean I think they're off-topic. I have 'valid' tags on ignore, that's what it's for right? $\endgroup$ – deep thought Dec 7 '18 at 2:12

What about a (see Raven's Progressive Matrices) tag for the "picture grid with a corner missing" type of problems?

For other type of sequences that also appear on IQ tests, there's already the , , and tags.

  • $\begingroup$ well, no responses... so I'll start doing it and see if it catches on, or if I get yelled at :-) $\endgroup$ – deep thought Dec 14 '18 at 2:07
