What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

There are currently a few year tags that should be removed (unless the year or number itself is an issue), probably added because of versioning.

Years:

  • -> Done by jjnguy
  • -> Done by KennyTM
  • -> Boom, no more!
  • -> Has popped up at least once on 2012-01-20
  • -> Done by jjnguy
  • -> Done (and done again 07/21/2011, it came back...)

Dangling version:

Many of these are just [product]-[year] without the hyphen or [product][year]. In the 2010 category, Visual Studio 2010 and Sharepoint 2010 seem prevalent.

Ultimately, can we add a ban on these tags?

SUPPLEMENTAL:

Other dangling tags (be careful, as some may be genuinely intended):

It seems that some of the [2007] and [2003] tags are for Office product questions that have been moved, and can't be retagged. –  Yi Jiang Aug 27 '10 at 17:05

I changed visual 2010 studio to visual-studio-2010 I made sure it had the sponsor logo on it. –  jjnguy Aug 27 '10 at 17:52

People 'pronounce' it jinguy which is ok. Otherwise I have no idea how to say it. (but I like to keep it jjnguy because those are my initials (jjn)) –  jjnguy Aug 27 '10 at 17:54

Added unit+testing to the list, as I've just eliminated [unit] and don't want it to sneak back again. –  razlebe Dec 8 '11 at 12:39

1 Answer 1

In addition, I found the following:

7bit       5 tags
8bit       8 tags
16bit     26 tags 
24-bit     8 tags
32bit    209 tags
64bit    887 tags
128-bit    7 tags

I think it should be either xxbit or xx-bit and based on the numbers, changing 24-bit to 24bit and 128-bit to 128bit looks like the most valid option. Only 15 to change. Unless there is a very good reason to leave it this way.

ok, I fixed the 24-bit and 128-bit ones. –  Jeff Atwood Jun 5 '11 at 16:49
