There are 96 questions on [so] tagged with the tag. Most of these are about the Sparx Enterprise Architect product.

Today, for the first time, I noticed an question which is not about the Sparx product (at least I think not, the question needs clarification). This tells me that at least some people are using that tag for the "other" purpose listed in the tag wiki:

Enterprise Architect can refer to the UML modeling tool created by Sparx Systems ( or to the specialized architect role. In order to specify the tool as meaning, add the tag [sparx] in addition.

Now, as it happens, there is no tag.

I would like to create the tag , or maybe , and I'd like to add that new tag to those questions which are actually about the Sparx product.

Any comments?

BTW, I'm asking because I was once threatened with suspension for adding the tag without permission from the community here on meta.

Here are the questions which are not about Sparx EA:

[c#-language] is just bad because there is already a [c#] tag. Now to your question: have you prove the tag is used for other things rather than the sparx thing? If not I don't see any meaning in retagging. If the tag is used for multiple things it would be useful to retag. As long as you don;t use the [sparx-ea] tag. Of the 96 questions how is it devided between the 2 meanings? – PeeHaa Mar 31 '12 at 19:56
If there are only six questions mis-using the tag, just remove that tag from them. Edit the wiki to only talk about the Sparx thing, and all should be good. – Mat Apr 1 '12 at 6:19
What tag would people use to discuss Enterprise Architecture? Should I create an enterprise-architecture tag? – John Saunders Apr 1 '12 at 10:03
@JohnSaunders Those questions are either not constructive, not a real question or just off topic IMHO. – PeeHaa Apr 1 '12 at 11:22
