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

When I search the keyword vim on stackoverflow, there are lots of questions which are tagged with the tag, but when I click the tag named vim, I am surprised to find that no questions use this tag. What's wrong? What happened?

What's more, when I click vim tag, it leads me to a page named the Featured tab. What is this?

Is the vim tag useless? If it is useless, why this tag is on the site?

No-repro. In the future, please use [meta] for such questions. – GSerg Jul 21 '12 at 8:44
what is the relation between stack overflow and meta stack overflow? seems their database are a bit different, since the result returned is different when i search – hugemeow Jul 21 '12 at 8:58
Stack Overflow is for questions about programming. Meta Stack Overflow is for questions about Stack Overflow. – Greg Hewgill Jul 21 '12 at 9:00

Your screenshot tells you exactly why - you are on the "Featured" tab and there are no vim questions with active bounty (which is what "featured" means here). Click "newest".

wow, it's a bit strange, when i click vim, it used to be no questions attached to this tag, but now there are lots of questions attached to this vim tag, what happened, why there is no questions attached to it hours ago? – hugemeow Jul 21 '12 at 12:38
This seems to come up quite often, maybe if you're on the featured tab of a tag with no featured posts it should redirect you to Newest – Ben Brocka Jul 21 '12 at 17:58

It's a valid tag, and 7,264 questions attached to this tag by the time I browsed it, you may try to refresh your page.
