Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

There's a tag: which I think needs to be removed. It has no wiki, so there's no good way to tell why it was created, but its usage is inconstant and not relevant:

20 questions are tagged with ; they break down as:

  • 4 question about astronomy-related program (position of a celestial body)
  • 7 question regarding quality ('star' ratings)
  • 2 question about a "star-field" (background image, or opengl star patterns)
  • 4 question about printing the ASCII asterisk character in a pattern (called "star" by OP)
  • 1 question about gmail's "starring" emails for later reference
  • 1 question about google's "started" locations on maps
  • 1 question about "stars" graphics in R

The only one programming-related is R's graphic function, but I don't think we need a tag for one question. The highest one "star ratings" are all also tagged with , and the celestial body questions are also tagged with ; so it seems the isn't doing any good.

With only 20 questions you don't need help: edit out all usages and it will soon be purged –  AakashM Dec 10 '12 at 15:42
@AakashM - I just wanted to see if there is any dispute with it before doing so. When taking actions which affect the community, I like to make sure the community is aware of it. :) –  Mike Dec 10 '12 at 15:47
The Unanswered tab count strikes again; there are actually 71 star questions –  Ben Brocka Dec 10 '12 at 15:56
