It was called to my attention in since-deleted comments below this answer that I might have mis-applied the tag a few times.

Current definition:

Questions which ask for an object in a photograph or other media to be identified and/or have its function described.

Questionable usage:

Probably incorrect usage:

So I'd like to ask...

  1. Does the tag belong on these questions as currently defined?
  2. Is it a good idea to broaden the definition to include "name that tune" or "what card am I thinking of" type questions, or should we leave the definition of the tag alone, considering it's been working fairly nicely as-is?

note: We already have the tag for questions of the class "What's the X-est Y...", so there's that.

IMO - the "questionable" one is fine, but the other two should be untagged. I don't think a general "identify-this" tag is useful. That's kind of the point of most questions: to explain the phenomenon the person asked about.

Change to (or just change the description)!

We can just remove object and change the description from:

Questions which ask for an object in a photograph or other media to be identified and/or have its function described.

To something like:

Questions which ask for something to be identified given a specific set of information/details, picture, or other media and have its function described.

Feel free to edit the descriptions, I am horribly bad at descriptive writing.
