What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 122 Stack Exchange communities.

Currently contains 796 questions. The tag describes itself as

Processing is an open source programming language ...

The questions are either really about the Processing language or about an algorythm in general that should process something.

This tag is really problematic since most people don't know that there is a programming language called Processing (I did not). And well, processing is what all programs do.

There were 2 other questions regarding that tag in the past:
what tag for processing and
tag synonym request processing.org -> processing

So what should be done about that tag?

We should change to , and move the tag wiki over. (The tag wiki should be moved either way, so I'll propose that edit.) That way, all the irrelevant questions are filtered out and retagged. At that point, the tag should either be deleted or blacklisted for being too general. But that's its own question.

Still, I agree. Processing is simply too generic.

I agree - [processing] ought to be blacklisted or deleted, and have everything moved to [processing-language]. Hopefully that will reduce the vagueness of the tag, and discourage improper use. –  Nightfirecat Jan 17 '13 at 2:26

Well... not everything. We need to look at each question individually to see if it actually belongs in [processing]. Most of them actually don't even belong there. –  Emracool Jan 17 '13 at 5:16
