What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

. Used to signify multithreading, multi-domain, multimodule, multitouch, multiple keys, and multi-who-knows-what-else (often just general "more than one of anything"). In some of the cases, there are more appropriate tags which should be used (and which generally are being used in conjunction with it), and most of the rest of the time I think it's just not appropriate.

Most of those questions are going to have to be re-tagged by hand. They require the "human touch", if you will. –  Cody Gray Aug 18 '11 at 13:22

Note that there is a multidimensional-array tag with over 1800 questions that might be better than just multidimensional when the question is about arrays. –  hammar Aug 18 '11 at 15:12

While on that subject, the dimensional tag is fairly poor quality, and with only four tagged questions... –  Chris Morgan Aug 18 '11 at 23:43
As far as I know, there's no automated way of retagging questions based on the presence of two tags, so that would make "bumping" somewhat inevitable. All we can do is create synonyms for a single tag. At least, moderators don't seem to have this ability; maybe devs do. –  Cody Gray Aug 19 '11 at 5:09
