Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

As is evident from its empty tag-wiki, the tag does not convey much info on its own.

At the moment, there are 1035 questions (its synonymous tags have >15K).
Should we (may I) start re-tagging them and burn the tag?...

Get to it, man. – Robert Harvey Sep 2 '13 at 3:22
@RobertHarvey Roger that. :-) Right now cleaning-up the recognition tag. Will start with patterns after this. Just thought of asking for confirmation first, since this is my first attempt at tag cleanup/burning. Thank You. – TheCodeArtist Sep 2 '13 at 3:25
Pattern is already synonymized to design-pattern, so I'm just going to go ahead and synonymize patterns also. – Robert Harvey Sep 2 '13 at 3:30
@RobertHarvey Ok. So next we can just properly re-tag questions which mean patern-matching but are marked with patterns. Right?... – TheCodeArtist Sep 2 '13 at 3:33
They're gonna be hard to find, now that I synonymized. :) – Robert Harvey Sep 2 '13 at 3:36
If you find any that don't belong, feel free to remove the tag. – Robert Harvey Sep 2 '13 at 4:07
Some candidates for tag fixing (there may be some overlap between those). – Dukeling Sep 5 '13 at 12:45
