When preparing for a retag request, especially one that would require a merging, I think it is more comfortable to get rid of some of the outlier questions that would not match the merge. For example, [searching] is not really any different than [search], a good portion of the questions are tagged with both and the majority of the remnants are just dividing the exact same content into two tags. There are a couple outliers that just do not need any search-based tag, but I became confused with this one. Myself, I could argue both ways that the [search] tag does and does not belong. As such, I would rather get someone else's opinion, but when these situations arise there are not always retaggers in the comment/edit threads to whom I could address.
Whether I am prepping a retag-request or not, is it alright to bump these questions up to the front page? Would it be appropriate to do this on the actual Q&A sites outside of Meta, bumping a question just to get some evaluation of its tags? If it is not appropriate, what is a better course of action for getting attention to these situations when I run into them?
