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

On Stack Overflow's site there is the tag for microsoft's XNA framework & there is also the tag

XNA version 4.0 is:

  • the only version with its own tag
  • the version that's been most-recent for several years
  • the only officially supported version
  • the final version of XNA (discontinued by microsoft)

and the tag has significantly less followers and potential helpers than the main tag

There's no reason for to exist as a tag: All tagged items should be just tagged as .

As I've a low rep on Stack Overflow, I came here to request that be fixed (Set as a synonym for )

If that's not going to happen, why is it that tags like this should continue to exist?

Version tags add useful information in a concise way. Tagging a question with xna and xna-4.0 saves an entire sentence ("I am using XNA version 4.0") in the question body and can be used to indicate that you are using a feature that is unique to that version. – George Cummins Jun 14 '13 at 4:12
@George - a good point (for similar issues), but doesn't outweigh the problems. Also ignores the fact that if you're using XNA, you're using XNA 4.0... there is no reason to ever use a different version... and if you somehow find one, it's a rare enough case that it should be marked with at least a full sentence. (4.0 users don't need to say anything, using 4.0 is the assumption.) – mcmonkey4eva Jun 14 '13 at 4:46
