Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

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.
