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 situation at is a bit confused. While most of the questions seem to refer to , there are some that are actually about serial numbers, serialization in multithreading, and probably other similarly named topics.

I'm planning on going through, retagging anything that relates to serial ports with , and then once I've figured out what's left, retagging as appropriate.

So please let me know if you have any suggestions or objections, and if not, join in the fun!

I've started hacking away at this a bit - there are some pretty interesting issues that people have with serial ports. – dsolimano Oct 2 '12 at 15:17
I keep a few RSS feeds handy for these cases. A lot are easy since they are usually split tags (like serial and port). With their powers combined, they are serial-port! – MPelletier Sep 17 '13 at 16:29
The RSS feeds - a great idea! – dsolimano Sep 18 '13 at 12:39
Also discovered yesterday, search for one tag and the other word. So [serial] port and [port] serial. – MPelletier Sep 18 '13 at 13:47
And this is done, for the no one following along. – dsolimano Nov 7 '14 at 16:40
