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

Yes, there are currently only twenty-two questions on Stack Overflow, so manually updating them is no problem.

My problem is, I'm not exactly sure how to retag some of them, as they fall into a number of categories.

Hand Gestures


Poker hands (these will just get removed, IMHO)

Mouse cursor

The tag says "A pointer style for a mouse.", but that's clearly wrong, since the first use of the tag was for hand gestures.

Maybe I'm overthinking a tag used on 22 questions, but I think the obvious thing to do is remove the tag from all poker and mouse cursor questions; it's a meta tag and is pointless.

What to do about the "hand gesture" and "finger" questions? Do we need a tag for them? Or is that just as meta and useless?

That tag just seems... dirty, somehow ;) – Andrew Barber Mar 13 '13 at 16:13

The hand gesture questions seem to be served well by the tag. No need for a tag there.

And the finger questions could simply go with a tag. I don't think those need anything more detailed than that either.

So I would simply get rid of the tag on those as well.

Aha, I knew there had to be some sort of [gesture-recognition] tag, I just couldn't figure out what it was. – LittleBobbyTables Mar 13 '13 at 14:28
