What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

There's a whole Stack Exchange site devoted to Database Administration(and More), having a tag on Stack Overflow isn't of much use and it doesn't describe the question at all - it's more of a meta tag.

So, please burninate

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "The problem described here can no longer be reproduced. Changes to the system or to the circumstances affecting the asker have rendered it obsolete. If you encounter a similar problem, please post a new question." – random
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

+1, though I disagree that it's a meta tag. However, it certainly could not stand alone on a SO question, and the questions have very little to do with each other. – Charles Jan 3 '12 at 6:21

@muntoo: trogdor burninates tags for breakfast, brunch, lunch, mid-day-snack, tea, dinner, supper, dessert, and mid-night snack. – sarnold Jan 3 '12 at 6:46

There are all kinds of legitimate programming questions related to database administration. Just because there are non-programming dba questions doesn't mean the dba tag isn't useful for tagging legitimate programming questions that have to do with dba.

.. and "dba" tag doesn't convey much about the question. – Sathya Jan 3 '12 at 6:38
it's still a meta-tag see blog.stackoverflow.com/2010/08/the-death-of-meta-tags – Jeff Atwood Jan 3 '12 at 9:51
@JeffAtwood I suppose this isn't exactly an argument for the merit of the tag, but I've seen a perfectly legitimate question for SO that gets moved because someone saw "dba" in it and thought "Oh I saw a site that specifically deals with dba stuff... that must mean this question isn't valid here". – Brandon Moore Jan 4 '12 at 21:25
