Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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 on the main site is always ambiguous. Can we eliminate it?

looks like it was attempted last Feb.… – Daniel A. White Aug 2 '12 at 0:44
Sorry about that, the Cabal failed to ensure that the tag remains dead. We've had a few of those lately. Sigh. I, for one, vote for blacklisting it. We were only able to keep it dead for a month before it slipped through the cracks again... – Charles Aug 2 '12 at 3:02

Also, I created and synonymized the two, since per the previous discussion this seems to be the most common legit use for it. Hopefully the "how can I convert CSV to XML?" folks will notice when "imagemagick" appears below their questions...

Also burn...inated .

You have far more faith in the blind tags-as-keywords crowd than I do. – Charles Aug 2 '12 at 4:10
thanks everyone! – Daniel A. White Aug 2 '12 at 10:43
A propos: converting – Daniel Fischer Aug 2 '12 at 14:37
@DanielFischer - that one should be burned too. – Daniel A. White Aug 2 '12 at 21:48
@DanielA.White Guess why I posted it. I hoped Shog9 would notice. – Daniel Fischer Aug 2 '12 at 21:56
@Daniel: thanks for the heads-up! – Shog9 Aug 2 '12 at 22:33
The synonym isn't, IMO, a good idea. Most of the stuff tagged imagemagick-convert now seems to be people trying to just use "convert" badly. – Wooble Sep 6 '12 at 18:54
The tag seems to have reappeared. – Xufox Jun 26 at 11:41
Gone again. @Xufox – Shog9 Jun 27 at 20:57
