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

I chanced across the hello tag. It has no tag wiki and no questions. How/Should it be deleted?

More generally, how should I respond to a tag I find with no tag wiki and no questions tagged by it?

As Lucifer notes, there's no need to take action to get rid of orphaned tags; they'll be automatically removed once a day.

From How can we get rid of misspelled and unused (or "zombie") tags?

Tags not associated with any question are pruned every 24 hours on the backend.
