Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

On Stack Overflow, there is a tag.
Its info reads:

Pow is a zero-config Rack server for Mac OS X created by 37signals.

However, most of the questions that are tagged with this tag actually refer to the pow function that appears in various languages.

What should be done about this?

Suggested plan of action:

  1. Change the info to something like:

    pow is a function that exists in various programming languages that usually takes two numbers as input and returns the first number to the power of the second number. DO NOT USE THIS TAG for questions relating to the Rack server, use [rack-pow] instead.

  2. Create a new tag

    Something like , or

  3. Manually retag all applicable questions with the new tag

I personally don't think going the other way would be better (i.e. leaving the info as is and creating a new tag for the pow function). The Rack server is less common.
