Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

was used in some question instead of , and one question used it because the question was about snow.

The tag should probably be renamed, as users sometimes use it instead of (well, in few questions both the tags were used).
Probably or would help to avoid users misuse the tag. It would also help if the tag had a Wiki page that explain exactly what the tag is for.

Submitted a tag wiki edit, but if it was incomplete, would probably get rejected. You're free to propose it yourself to clear up the snowstorm. – random Apr 9 '11 at 14:42
@random I would, but I cannot propose any tag wikis, for the next seven days. – kiamlaluno Apr 9 '11 at 14:45
Snow isn't burninated? – Andrew Grimm May 13 '11 at 6:06

snow is a package used in the R programming language.

It shouldn't be removed just because people mistagged it when they were referring to .

A brief clear up in the tag wiki will help things and may not require a rename. The suggested tag wiki (and excerpts) should mention its relation to the R programming language lest we find ourselves here again.

And we probably will since some people tag with spaces before reading and carry over any number of tagging convention/behaviour from other sites.

I think it should be renamed to something like [r-snow], as otherwise it is too generic of a term. – Gabe Apr 9 '11 at 14:31
I apologize: I misunderstood your previous answer. I am going to edit this question. – kiamlaluno Apr 9 '11 at 14:37
