Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

The tag is used for two different technologies:

  • Ruby based persistent queue server.
    Starling is a light-weight persistent queue server that speaks the MemCache protocol. It was built to drive Twitter's backend, and is in production across Twitter's cluster.

  • ActionScript 3 library for hardware accelerated 2D graphics.
    The Starling Framework is a pure ActionScript 3 library that mimics the conventional Flash display list architecture. In contrast to conventional display objects, however, all content is rendered directly by the GPU — providing a rendering performance unlike anything seen in the Flash Player before.

Source: tag wiki excerpt and body suggestions.

As far as I can tell, only one of the 16 questions under this tag are for the ActionScript library. So I was thinking about leaving the for just that, and creating a for the ActionScript one.

Would this be ok? Anyone have a better tag name or a different way of going about this?
(I'd rather have the edit suggester get the deserved credit for creating the ActionScript-related tag, so maybe leaving him a comment to that effect would be best?)

I voted to reject the suggested edits since documenting a tag for two uses seems inappropriate to me. The tag currently has a dangling body and no excerpt as far as I can tell.

Well, Clarice, have the tags stopped screaming? – Time Traveling Bobby Oct 9 '11 at 17:58

Personally, I'd split it in starling-server and starling-framework.

The starling framework is likely to get much traction quite soon (it's based on flash player 11, which only was released a couple of days ago). I don't see why either should be preferred over another.
