What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 145 Stack Exchange communities.

There are currently 51 posts in the tag, which all refer to the jQuery live function.
There's a better tag for that function: with 322 posts. I thought to suggest .live as a synonym, but it sounds like an awful tag name, maybe all the question should be migrated to jquery-live and close the .live tag?

What action should be taken with the ".live" tag?

@Chichiray. But I don't think .live is a valid name for a tag. just like round isn't .round... –  user173320 May 12 '12 at 22:07
Just manually retag them all to [jquery-live]. @Chichiray: Existing questions aren't automatically migrated just because a synonym is created. It has to be done manually. –  animuson May 12 '12 at 22:11
@animuson: oh, if that's true, that would be rather strange. Thank you for the information. –  BalusC May 12 '12 at 22:19

The tag is just as ambiguous as the tag, which should also be taken care of at some point. For now, the tag will go away in around 24 hours. Since it had such a low question count, I doubt a blacklist is necessary since there's really no evidence that it will reappear.
