What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

According to Jeff here, there is a tag blacklist only devs can access.

Can we help selecting this tags?
Should we post a meta question tagged blacklist-request or bl-request for the team to consider?

Would this be useful at all?

[blacklist-request] seems better than [bl-request]. –  Gnome May 11 '10 at 1:10
Jeff never seems to reply to comments. :( –  Jon Seigel May 11 '10 at 1:59
A blacklist request tag should include "tag" so it's searchable. –  Jon Seigel Jun 5 '10 at 22:48

From the linked answer:

We work with the existing site moderators to determine what's bad enough to be blacklisted. It has to be quite bad.

That's pretty clear, actually. Email the mod team and/or post here on Meta if you think something's bad enough to warrant blacklisting.

As noted in Jeff's post, the dev team actually handles the implementation. You need to convince the moderators of a site that a tag needs to be blacklisted; then they will request its addition from the dev team.

Seems like a straightforward enough process, right? Sigh... –  alex May 11 '10 at 5:02

I know, I was just proposing a way for us mere mortals to help. Post a request, discuss, vote on it, and if approved, moderators or dev team can implement it. –  jmfsg May 11 '10 at 14:17
@Downvoter: you tagged this question [discussion] not [feature-request] ... just consider this post an overview of the current process. :) –  quack quixote May 11 '10 at 14:34
