We have an [odd] problem on Stack Overflow. There are only
7 6 questions currently with this tag, but it covers 3 possible meanings and one of them I believe is undesirable. The last one is one I'm not sure how to take care of, hence bringing this up for discussion. The first two are merely around to establish the ambiguity of a plain "odd" tag.
Only one question used the tag in this fashion, and I have already removed it. Considering the rally of support behind removing tags like [weird] and [strange], it made sense to get rid of it just like I plan to tackle the rest of its brethren like [odd-behaviour].
2. Quantities/Values Not Divisible By Two
3. Alternating Elements of an Iteration
The meat of this question is the questions that use [odd] for this. Basically, when people want "every other element" of something. Sometimes it specifically is the odd-numbered iterations, but not all of them. Considering the lack of an "even" tag, I imagine those are tagged "odd" just because it was around.
I can't think of a proper tag for this concept, though. What are your thoughts?
