What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

Today, while editing a question, I noticed it had the tag. I was tempted to remove this tag as it seems unhelpful, though I wasn't sure. Does this tag provide any value? (Why, if so?) Should we get rid of it?

I think we should make it a synonym, as BoltClock says in his comment.

I have also found some other candidates for synonyms, so this is what I propose:
