What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

looks like a meaningless tag, which could be applied to every single question on the site; why would the person asking a question not want a solution?

I propose burnination with extreme prejudice.

Following Bart's comment, came up with the following:

Where is used with respect to Visual Studio, it should be re-tagged as , which has a tag wiki inidicating it's about VS Solution files.

, , and should also probably be retagged to

and look like complete junk.

Seems to be a used a fair number of times for Visual Studio solutions, but perhaps that can do with a more descriptive name if it's needed at all. – Bart Mar 13 '13 at 13:20
The "solution" tag wiki indicates it's for just that purpose; I'll retag the VS questions. (And cleanup that tag because it's massively misused.) – Wooble Mar 13 '13 at 13:23
Downvoters care to defend these tags? – Wooble Mar 13 '13 at 13:32

Some of those questions were hard to retag, but most seemed to relate to and , and I have thus re-tagged all that remained.

I also have merged the with , as the SLN tag seemed redundant.

The tag should disappear in 24 hours, and seeing as it wasn't a very active tag, I don't expect it to come back any time soon, so burnination, while awesome, probably isn't needed here.
