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

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
