I created the tag (and its tag wiki) for a question about koken themes.

Someone thoughtfully removed the tag from my question and replaced it with and , perhaps thinking those tags would get more traffic to my question.

I retagged the question as (as I was able to answer the question using koken framework) and note that the Koken tag wiki has vanished.

I can understand why my question was untagged koken, but I wonder why the koken tag wiki vanished. Was it automagically erased because no questions had that tag?

IIRC there is a script that cleans up tags with 0 usage. – Patashu May 21 '13 at 1:50
Just so you'll know, a question can have more than one tag, and it makes sense for at least one of them to be a popular tag. There's no reason for your question to have just the koken tag. – Eran May 21 '13 at 2:42
You're right, Eran. In this case, however, I specifically want a koken solution, as I was already able to solve it with javascript (as mentioned in the question). – Thunder Rabbit May 21 '13 at 3:31

Tags with no questions are purged every day, so by the time the daily job ran your question didn't have the tag anymore. When you re-added it the tag was created afresh, hence the missing wiki.
