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?
Here's how it works:
  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 tag has several meanings; at least:

  • A PIN, i.e. a sequence of digits typically used as a password (e.g. 1 2) → (new) when it's about typing a PIN, and when it's about storing one
  • a pin indicating a position on a map (e.g. 1 2) → (new), or just ?
  • to pin a UI element, meaning to make in inamovible or to make its position fixed (e.g. 1 2) → (already exists)

I propose to retag as above to disambiguate the tag. Are there other meanings of the tag? Should we disambiguate differently?
