  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I saw a question on SO with the product, manager and resume tags. I don't see any of these tags adding anything meaningful and probably should be deleted.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "This question pertains only to a specific site in the Stack Exchange Network.

They all have legitimate meaning on Stack Overflow, but all of these tags do need to be cleaned up (not removed).

The first two I can see, but if resume is really meant in the context of threading then it's a lousy tag. [multithreading] already tells us everything we need to know about the question's topic; I really doubt that there are any experts specifically on the topic of resuming threads (and even if there were, then the appropriate tag would be [resuming], not [resume]). That one really smacks of people pasting the question title into the tag box. – Aarobot Mar 7 '11 at 2:55
@Aarobot: Yeah, on second thought I agree. Unfortunately too many people use it when they mean "résumé" so I think it would make a bad synonym. – Bill the Lizard Mar 7 '11 at 3:07
my thoughts on the matter: product as in multiplication does not need a tag. product in the context of magento is probably better expressed as magento-product. manager appears to be used for many different things, if we want a tag for the manager design pattern (though I think that might be a bit too specific) then manager-design-pattern would probably be a better name. I would argue that questions to do with résumés are probably better served on programmers.SE ... if it's about résumés for programmers that is. – Brian Reichle Mar 7 '11 at 7:17
@Brian: That all seems reasonable. I've already cleared out all the résumé questions. The [resume] tag is now only used on questions like suspend-resume, which I think might be what the tag should be. – Bill the Lizard Mar 7 '11 at 12:08
