This site is for Stack Exchange 2.0 support, and doubles as a per-site Meta for Stack Overflow.
Questions about the engine and core-related features should not have
[stackexchange] on them because it's a redundant tag -- the SOFU engine and Stack Exchange 2.0 engine are now one and the same.
What I do agree with is that
[stackoverflow] should be untagged from questions where it's not a specific support request or discussion about Stack Overflow specifically. I think the retaggers here have been good at eliminating these from questions, particularly migrated questions (which need retagging anyway).
Essentially there should be five categories of questions on here:
- Questions with
[stackoverflow], which are requests specifically related to Stack Overflow in some way;
- Questions related to the Meta site itself (i.e.,
- Questions with neither
[meta] (etc.) which are for engine features/support/discussion/etc.
- Questions related to supplementary sites of Stack Exchange 2.0 (i.e.,
Anything else is off-topic.
That means there is additional work to do to remove
[stackexchange-2.0] from a lot of questions (looks like about 350 of them).
[stackexchange] questions that refer only to SE1.0 sites should be closed as off-topic and deleted, as they should be on meta.stackexchange (I haven't checked, but I think this is probably quite clean already -- Jeff is aggressive with closing this stuff, and rightfully so -- there may be some stragglers that need deleting). An exception to that would be discussions about interactions of SE1.0 sites with SOFU sites, such as questions about MathOverflow as it relates to SO -- that sort of thing.
I think the final result we should see is a complete elimination of
[stackexchange-2.0], and an introduction of a new tag
[stackexchange-1.0] for the discussions involving the legacy sites (as mentioned in the previous paragraph). Doing that segregation is a good first step, as we can probably get Jeff to database-dump the other tags once the required human intervention is complete.
Certainly there's a lot to go through... I'm always wary of flooding Meta's homepage because people come here for urgent help and bumping questions off the front page isn't really considerate to those people. So, yeah, we an all chip in a few at a time. Eventually they'll all get done.
