What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

There are 423 questions tagged . This seems to be a completely non-tag, that should be removed. It looks like it's being used for "How can I get this wavy effect?" type questions.

I think this suggested edit to the tag wiki sums up my argument best:

Effect is a result or change of something. For example, a graphical effect (adding sepia to pictures, page curling), sound effects (high treble/bass, changing pitch), etc.

i.e. almost everything.

How about we just change it to [affect] and see if anyone notices? –  Lance Roberts Mar 29 '13 at 8:30
    
Yes, wasn't sure about that @Lucifer. It was accurate as-is; it's just that the tag is too broad. –  ben is uǝq backwards Mar 29 '13 at 8:30
    
Yes, agree with you @benisuǝqbackwards –  Lucifer Mar 29 '13 at 8:31
    
Agreed, and the relevant questions could be retagged [jquery-ui-effects]. –  Frédéric Hamidi Mar 29 '13 at 8:32
    
The potential effects of your suggestion are overly affecting @Lance :-). But, no, I doubt anyone would notice. –  ben is uǝq backwards Mar 29 '13 at 8:39
