The embedded tag on SO has the wiki:
This tag refers to embedded systems, which are computer systems running on dedicated hardware for a specific purpose.
When asking questions please try to be as specific about your development platform, tool chain, and target platform as possible, unless the question is of broader interest or impact.
This tag neither refers to embedding media into HTML pages (e.g. via the <embed> tag) or embedding programming languages, databases or other things into programs, unless done on an embedded system.
It's very clear.
However, some people don't seem to get this. I've cleaned up a fair number of questions completely unrelated to embedded systems in the past week since I started following this tag, but there are lots of them. There aren't as many with the tag on SU, but the ratio of hits to misses is much worse there.
I suggest that we:
- Delete the tag from unrelated questions. Replace it with the embed tag.
- Take some action to prevent/discourage it from being misused in the future, such as merging it into the embedded-systems tag.
The wiki is nice, but it's not working.
