What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

23 questions have been marked under . Should I go ahead and remove from Stack Overflow? It seems like a meta-tag to me.

What is a meta-tag?

  1. If the tag can’t work as the only tag on a question, it’s probably a meta-tag. Every tag you use should be able to work, more or less, as the only tag on a question.
  2. If the tag commonly means different things to different people, it’s probably a meta-tag.

I think [kiss] fits the definition described in point #1 above. A sample of posts marked under [kiss]:

Imagine if all of the 4 posts above were only tagged under [kiss]. Surely it would not have explained what the posts are all about.


There was 1 question which has been retagged to and 1 question retagged to . Rest of the 21 questions were referring to the KISS principle which is more suited for Programmers.SE instead of Stack Overflow.
