What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

The tag used to be inundated with career-related questions. These questions are now gone (thanks to everyone involved in that clean-up job). This frees the tag for actual programming-related use.

For job scheduling, there is a tag .

For the Unix/Linux concept of jobs, should we use ?

What else can the tag mean? Should we disambiguate it? Should we keep it, and if so, meaning what?

If it related to Unix/Linux and it is not a programming question then it should go on Unix.SE. –  Bryan Dunsmore Jun 3 '12 at 19:20
@dunsmoreb Only if it is not a programming question. Unix & Linux does not accept programming questions. –  Gilles Jun 3 '12 at 19:26
and it is not a programming question. –  Bryan Dunsmore Jun 3 '12 at 19:27
I went through and removed all the questions in the [jobs] tag that were about employment opportunities and career advice. I think all of them that are left are firmly in the [job-scheduling] category. –  Bill the Lizard Jun 4 '12 at 1:49
@BilltheLizard Oh wow, thank you. Um, you missed a few. I expected these to be gradually closed and deleted (or framed). –  Gilles Jun 4 '12 at 18:07
@Gilles Hopefully it will be easier for someone to answer your real question without those 100 or so employment questions in the way. RE: Framing: LOL! I didn't really see anything worth trying to salvage. We'll see if anyone notices. :) –  Bill the Lizard Jun 4 '12 at 18:14
