Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

If a tag has the same meaning on Programmers as it does on another Stack Exchage site, would it not be useful to be able to import the tag wiki or (less attractive) share the wiki with the other sites?

Perhaps the wiki body could be shared, and the tag line would need to be unique per-site.

I think too often, the tags on different sites have different semantic meanings. So I wouldn't advocate one common repository of tags (for example).

However, if you like the tag wiki from Programmers, then just opt to edit it, copy the entries and paste them to the site of your choosing.

I did this. It seemed like a bad idea (copy-paste) when I did it. That is why I asked. – sylvanaar Aug 18 '11 at 20:25
I've done it quite regularly when proposing synonyms where one tag has a nice wiki and the other is blank. No worries! – M. Tibbits Aug 18 '11 at 20:33
Indeed the tags often have different meanings on different sites; something you've learned the hard way :-p – Cody Gray Aug 19 '11 at 5:05
