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?

  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 jQuery related questions would probably be better suited retagging hide/show to or even as the more general "hook" and specify that you are hiding/showing something with your animation. The questions not related to animation effects should probably just have these tags removed altogether as they provide no helpful information.

All we need now are [rawhide], [hide-and-go-seek], and [hidebound]. And perhaps [showboat]. – Rosinante Jan 29 '12 at 18:35
A moderator may help to retag all posts (397) having both show and hide tags into show-hide. – Aziz Shaikh Dec 6 '12 at 11:20
