Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

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.

@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
