What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

While looking at the revision history for a particular question, I noticed that the tag was removed in revision 3.

This made me curious, so I looked at other questions that still have that tag:

Ok, so there's a whole bunch of questions out there that have nothing to do with "tips and tricks". Let's see if we can find some questions that the tag DOES apply to:

I think it's time to squash :

  • For questions that are on-topic, it's a meta tag.
  • For questions where it's not a meta tag, the question is off-topic.

Meta tag or not, the wiki entry for it says DO NOT USE since April 30, 2012:

DO NOT USE - Removed as part of The great Stack Overflow tag/question cleanup of 2012.

Per the link in the tag wiki: "Don't just remove the tag; review the question and fix anything else you can find in the process." In other words, looks like this tag isn't getting burninated any time soon. –  todofixthis Jun 5 '12 at 23:45
