What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 139 Stack Exchange communities.

Recently I stumbled upon and found out it has ambiguous meaning.
Is it possible to create unambiguous tags instead?

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." – Roombatron5000, gnat, ben is uǝq backwards, Martijn Pieters, psubsee2003
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Given that splitting it up would seem to result in tags with just a single question, I wonder if it's needed at all. –  Bart Mar 7 '13 at 10:25

There seems to be two question here and here that's actually a valid use for that tag.

Actually scratch that, there's another valid use, but on a different topic (but it's closed).

It seems that SILO refers to two things: A third party scientific I/O library and an SEO pattern.

On that basis, I'd say that it probably should be expanded to refer to the I/O library, whilst the other question to be de-tagged as SILO (question maybe even deleted as it's already closed).

I removed the tag from the one where it was obviously misused; I'll leave rewriting the tag wiki to cover only the mesh library to someone who's actually familiar with it, if that's the consensus. –  Wooble Mar 7 '13 at 11:33
