I recently discovered that we have a tag here on PSE meta. It's used on 11 questions, 8 of which are our "Best of [time period]" posts while the other 3 are a strange mix:

I can't see any common feature between these 11 questions. The obvious meaning of a tag called would be similar to the existing tag, but none of the above questions, with the possible exception of the Only Connect one, are actually about good practice. I'm struggling to see any point in this tag at all, so I hereby call for it to be eradicated.

(Of course I could simply edit those 11 questions myself, but that would involve a lot of bumping, so I'm posting here to meta so that it can be handled by mods. Note that eliminating the tag doesn't require hard burnination by a CM: it can simply be merged [without synonymising, of course] into the tag, which will cause the unwanted tag to smoothly disappear from all questions and from the system.)


I agree, burninate it.

But, not blacklist it yet.

The tag is used by 3 users collectively, 11 questions total, not quite recent, so I don't think it should be really burninated. These questions can then be re-tagged .

  • $\begingroup$ Sure, I never suggested blacklisting it. And most of those 11 questions aren't actually anything to do with etiquette, so they shouldn't be retagged etiquette either. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Sep 26 '16 at 15:51
