Hey @jmort253 are you around?

My question is answerable by anyone, I was just wondering how I should flag posts which are too technical for the workplace like this one:

Q: How to describe AWS / Google Cloud Platform experience for a Microsoft application?

LucasI have specific project experience using AWS and Google Cloud Platform for hosting virtual instances and handling scalability, although I have not used Microsoft's version of the same service (Azure) on a project. On an application to Microsoft, what is the best way to display this experience? Sh...

I would flag it as off-topic, belongs on a different stackexchange site, but a) I don't have the option, b) I have no idea where it would go. I also don't really think that it's blatantly off topic or that it really fits in one of the off topic close reasons.
(I probably should have made a meta post for this... maybe tomorrow)
 
@IanHolstead You can always flag as "other (needs moderator attention)" if there isn't a flag option available, just FYI.
In this case, I'm not sure it's off topic as it's about how to represent this information on a resume. It involves some minor knowledge of the technology, but most of the problem is something someone with HR, recruiting, or workplace experience could possibly help with.

@jmort253 That is how I have been flagging posts which were obviously too technical, I was just wondering if there was a better way
 
@jmort253 Thanks, I'll point these out to the OP

I am working on a meta post similar to the one RhysW did about a year ago
and I am wondering if I should be asking the question the same way he did
(that is, posting each tag recommendation as an answer)

Q: You'll want to [tag] this discussion!

Ian HolsteadOn a more serious note, I have done some research into tag cleanup and am looking for community feedback. Just like when RhysW did the same thing, I will post one answer for each recommendation, feel free to add your own. ps. I don't actually have enough rep to make synonyms or insta-edit, etc....

 
I have added all my recommendations to the above question. All the answers are community wiki so feel free to make them better or even add your own! I hope it will be helpful :)
