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?

Don't worry , it will be automatically removed if not having any tagged questions. –  Lucifer Oct 24 '12 at 2:06

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.
