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.

The tag is used in 151 questions and doesn't seem to add value to questions. Some of the questions with this tag should be closed, others would be just as helpful without this tag. The tag wiki states:

Groups of people working cooperatively to complete a task.

Hmm. Is this a candidate for burnination?


I noticed that the revision history for the tag wiki includes this revision, which was later rolled back by Shog9. I couldn't find anything on meta about this particular tag, but is there some reason this shouldn't be removed?

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." – CRABOLO, Monica Cellio, Martijn Pieters, ɥʇǝS, Yi Jiang
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

The Great Cleanup went over like a ton of bricks, thus the changing of the tag wiki. The tag is still worth being cleaned up, of course. Don't just go and remove it, chances are that the questions it contains are horrible and worth closing and/or removing entirely. – Charles Mar 25 '13 at 16:46

It doesn't seem that useful anymore, since most of those questions aren't on-topic for Stack Overflow, but there are old questions out there that are historical that it applies to. I think you could probably synonym it to , or something along those lines.

I would dearly love to destroy project-management as well... and agile-project-management – ben is uǝq backwards Mar 25 '13 at 17:59
@benisuǝqbackwards, yeh, but we still need it for the historicals. – Lance Roberts Mar 25 '13 at 18:00
Just killed the tag on this question. It is rather easy to kill because often the question is about something else and people add the project management tag because the phrase stands out when you read it. – Lee Louviere Apr 1 '13 at 18:53
@LeeLouviere, good, but don't forget to edit the other things in the post also (I took care of that one). – Lance Roberts Apr 1 '13 at 18:56

Seems synonyms aren't enough. You need auto-burninate. For tags that are useful in history but no longer.

The tag is allowed to exist on current questions, but cannot be added to any questions going forward.
