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

This question already has an answer here:

I know, it doesn't make much sense to flag a question or answer post once a question is historically locked, because in theory nothing should need to change in the question ever again.

Recently, the tag was cleaned up. However, there are two questions (1, 2) that still have the tag associated with it, which is preventing it from getting cleaned up in the nightly cleanup. Since the questions are historically locked, I can't even flag them for moderator attention.

Two questions:

  1. Can a moderator please remove the tag from these questions so that it can get cleaned up?
  2. Is there a more appropriate way to flag these questions for attention than bringing it up on Meta? Or is this such an edge case that it's just easier to bring it up here instead of doing something silly like flagging some other question and then including your request in the "Other" notes?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Asking here on Meta or in chat (when there is a mod roaming freely) appears to be the proper way to do this. – Shadow Wizard Jul 25 '13 at 13:00
Recently, the education tag was cleaned up. Yes, I wonder how that happened? – Won't Jul 25 '13 at 15:06
Also, number one there has one tag--training. That needs to go away as well. Not sure what to tag that monstrosity. – Won't Jul 25 '13 at 15:07
Yes, I wonder how that happened? The world may never know. – LittleBobbyTables Jul 25 '13 at 15:17

I have removed the from the two questions in question.

As Sha Wiz Dow Ward pointed out, posting here is the correct thing to do.

Awesome, thanks! – LittleBobbyTables Jul 25 '13 at 13:24
While we're on the subject, could you remove the training tag from the first question?… – Won't Jul 25 '13 at 15:08
@Won't what do you suggest I replace it with? – ChrisF Jul 25 '13 at 15:11
@ChrisF: Well, I'd suggest deleting it first off. It's four years old, only has 4k views, and is off topic. A lock isn't really warranted. Other than that, the [language-agnostic] tag fits better. – Won't Jul 25 '13 at 15:26
@Won't Ah. Deleting is certainly a viable option. – ChrisF Jul 25 '13 at 15:30
