It seems like frequently used but poor quality tags (for whatever reason) are dealt with quite quickly after a few rounds of discussions.
But there are many tags on SO that are also poor quality (for whatever reason) that are only used once or not at all that don't get the same attention.
Could there be a way that the community can help to clean these up without having to alert the whole community, either by flagging or voting or some other mechanism?
I know from this post that Jeff now has a process that runs every six months, but why should tags like notformeitsforafriend(1) and thumnails(0) not be killed off earlier? These tags also show up in the autosuggestion.
I can't see a good reason or a situation where these tags would be valid esp. in cases where it's a spelling mistake and there are no questions attached.
For thumbnails there now exists:
- thumnail(1) This was asked Jan 22nd so not sure why it has not been cleaned by Jeff's process
None of which are currently marked as synonyms.
Any suggestions on a quicker process for killing off these tags for those wanting to help?
Maybe a cleanup day or cleanup question (meta community wiki post)?
