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.

The meta-tag, seems to be pointless for a few reasons:

  • If it is so low of a priority, is it worth asking?
  • It isn't obvious who can make the decision of its priority.
  • It may be an actual problem for someone else.
  • Does this tag add anything of substance? Would anything change without it?
  • There are only 7 questions with this tag.

Can this tag be removed?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "This question pertains only to a specific site in the Stack Exchange Network. Questions on Meta Stack Exchange should pertain to our network or software that drives it as a whole, within the guidelines defined in the help center. You should ask this question on the meta site where your concern originated." – CRABOLO, animuson, gnat, Monica Cellio, Martijn Pieters
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Hmm, is this high-priority? – Bart Jan 16 '13 at 19:28
@Bart I almost tagged this question as low-priority... – Austin Henley Jan 16 '13 at 19:28
Does low-priority necessarily refer to the question itself? Couldn't it be about low-priority processes? – Benjol Jan 17 '13 at 12:31

I edited the seven questions with the tag to remove it (and make any other worthwhile changes). It will be automatically removed as an orphan in ~24 hours.

For an obvious meta-tag tag with so little use, I'm not sure anyone really needs to ask for burnination versus just editing it away themselves.

Checking Meta for burnination is always a good idea if you think anyone might care, or there are more than a few dozen questions and people might notice. – Charles Jan 17 '13 at 0:49
