Raghav Sood asked: Which tags do you believe are in desperate need of maintenance right now and what will you do to help out with said maintenance?
Jon Clements answered: I want the python tag cleaned up - sopython.com
Jon Clements continued: and then seeing i put work into it, I want it more available to others
Madara Uchiha answered: php, jquery, android. All of those need attention. I'm active on two of the three.
Richard J. Ross III answered: Android, php, and somewhat the C++ tags all could use some help.
Wooble answered: I don't believe in giving more attention to specific tags (except the ones that are frequently misused because of misunderstandings, which I tend to adopt as favorites), but looking at questions individually on their own merit.
Raghav Sood remarked: But some tags have major quality problems. For exame, the Android tag gets a lot of new questions everyday. Many of these are duplicates.
Wooble responded: If people want to vote for someone who the Android community will break legs for because they want their tag cleaned up, they know who to vote for.
Raghav Sood replied: Ah. My campaign manager has become famous ;)
JNK answered: I think the folks in those tags can probably tell us better than we can deduce on our own. There are millions of users and a few dozen mods - let's crowdsource some of that initial filtering to see what needs attention.
minitech answered: Err... all of them have their bad moments. I don't discriminate :P
Rocket Hazmat answered: php, problem is lots of people just post links and say "fix this". I'd tell them they need to clean up their question and direct them to similar ones.
bluefeet answered: I think a lot can be done to clean up the MySQL and PHP tags.
ChrisF answered: I see poor question in all tags. Those that I know something about I can edit and/or close others I'm going to have to leave to others as I don't have the domain knowledge to improve the answer. All I could do would get bad stuff closed more quickly, but that isn't always the best approach.
Gordon answered: I'd say PHP is a mess. Simply because it's the most popular scripting language, is installed on 80% servers and everyone can pick it up so easily. We have tons of dupes in there. It could benefit from a full time mod actually.
Gordon continued: I'd help out like I already do. PHP is my main tag and I am part of the cv-ring, e.g. a group of PHP enthusiasts meeting the php chat room and coordinating cleaning there. We even wrote our own tools to assist us with that.
kiamlaluno answered: Tags related to Drupal needs some assistance, especially because perfectly answerable questions are closed as off-topic, or not constructive, when they are not.
Lord Torgamus answered: android and facebook get a lot of complaints. I don't plan to actively go into any tags for cleanup runs, mod-guns blazing, but if there are more flags coming from those areas, I'll probably be spending a proportionate amount of time there.
Flexo answered: my intention is to go where the flags take me rather than spending a massive amount of time seeking out problems. There are certainly tags with quality issues. I have a tag blacklist optimised for reading questions I like currently, I'll remove that if elected.
Lix answered: The active tags always need the most attention. A good way to help with mass cleanups it a constructive meta post calling users to action.
mattytommo answered: I don't think I would know which tags are in desperate attention, but if one was raised by a community member, I'd surely divert my attention and help clean it up (voting, editing, deleting, migrating questions etc.).
Andrew Barber answered: One of my major tag-related crusades is watching the newly-created tags for misspellings, and obviously Meta tags (probably because my default 10k Tools view is the one that includes new tags at the bottom). My hope there is to try to prevent new tags from being tomorrow's train wrecks. Beyond that, I look out for current issues on Meta, and edit when I can.
