  1. Tagging Digest, Vol 71, Issue 5:
    • Martin Koppenhoefer: "there's also a tag shop=herbalist" but i think is not the best tag for this, because the supplements can be or can't be herbs and herbalist definition: Shop focused on selling herbs, often for medical purposes.
    • Warin:

"The proposal is on the wiki page

And states "Definition: A shop selling vitamins and minerals; food supplements."

Does the shop have to sell BOTH vitamins and minerals? And the semicolon does not make sense.

Perhaps Definition: A shop selling food nutrition supplements. ???

Then states

"Use for shops that offer vitamins and minerals, herbal supplements, health and beauty items, strength and fitness supplements and weight loss products."

Might be better represents as a list ?

"Use for shops that sells one or more nutritional supplements;

   weight loss"

Though I think the first three cover the rest ? So might even better as

"Use for shops that sells one or more nutritional supplements (of vitamins, minerals and/or herbs) used for;

   weight loss"

The proposal should also mention the past proposal

I have removed the beauty thing ... are these used for that too? If so include it in the above. "

Thanks for your comments, i will change the definition. I mentioned the past proposal in Examples section and in the Talk section. --Pyro Maggot 23:12, 03 August 2015 (UTC)

"Brought this up a few months back.

What I found is that dietary supplements was what wikiepdia used and also most common on government pages (e.g. Food and Drug Administration). The EU even just seem to call it food supplements. Dietary seems a but more neutral than nutriotion and even when you google nutrition you will find a lot of pages that say dietary. Looks like a better fit to me.

But everything is better than just supplements." - User:AndiG88 06:45, 09 August 2015 (UTC)
