About three years ago, in the early days of HSM, it was decided on meta that it was probably not useful to tag posts by the names of relevant scientists. The reason for this is that it would lead to a huge amount of tags which would only be used once, or a handful of times, which only causes cluttering and doesn't really serve much of a purpose.
However, the most highly-upvoted answer to that old question does mention the possibility of creating some exceptions to this rule. I think it is now time to try to make our policy more concrete/clear.
Do we want to allow any "name tags"? What exactly is the reason we do/do not (some arguments against have been given in the answer to the linked question)?
a) If yes, how do we decide which scientists get a name tag?
c) If yes, I propose to use this thread to maintain a list of those scientists who have their own name tag (for future reference, e.g. when justifying the removal of other name tags).
