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

There is the stats feature for single tags. But have you ever thought of giving away data about the overall development of tags? Like, how many questions tagged "foo" were asked in a certain interval, and a timeline of the most important or most differing (in time) tags?

I think it could be quite interesting. Although the evidence of how en vogue something is is not given by such a graph, it would nevertheless give an impartial position on some personal thoughts (like, 'Oh dear, I could swear there were no FORTRAN questions in the last two months... And those I like best.').
