What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 130 Stack Exchange communities.

The tag on Stack Overflow seems extremely localized. There are only a few questions with this tag, and a couple of those are closed. Also, most answers suggest not using bitboards, but rather arrays.

Should this tag be destroyed?

Suggest using , or tags instead.

Why delete that tag? It seems fair enough to me. That some of the questions with that tag got closed does not matter all that much I'd say. –  Bart Nov 26 '12 at 21:39
@animuson Thanks for correcting that. –  Nick Vaccaro Nov 26 '12 at 21:40
@Bart Most of the answers to questions related to bitboards suggest using arrays. Basically, people recommend away from the bitboard solution in general. Also, spell suggest doesn't know what I'm talking about. ; ) –  Nick Vaccaro Nov 26 '12 at 21:43
Not sure that those arguments are valid. I would tell anyone to stay away from [dev-c++] as well, but that does not mean the tag isn't valid. And you know you can add words to your dictionary, right? ;) –  Bart Nov 26 '12 at 21:51
I should have realized that! But, out of principle, I will not be adding "bitboard." Hrrmmph. –  Nick Vaccaro Nov 26 '12 at 21:52
