I was looking at the context tag, which said:
DO NOT USE - Removed as part of https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/128315/the-great-stack-overflow-tag-question-cleanup-of-2012.
I've updated the page so it now reads:
DO NOT USE - Removed as part of https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/128315/the-great-stack-overflow-tag-question-cleanup-of-2012. That page has now (2012-08-21) been removed, leaving you without much information about what to do now. Do not use the tag; consider removing it from existing questions.
But that isn't very helpful to anyone who was not involved. And there are more than one thousand context questions, so the tag isn't going away any time soon.
(Incidentally, the context tag is still being actively used: 3 in the last 24 hours (though I've now untagged those 3, leaving 'context' out of the tagging altogether), 1 yesterday, and 3 on 17th August, ...)
Two questions arise:
- Do we need the 'Great Stack Overflow Tag Wiki Cleanup' to remove the references to the defunct 'Great Stack Overflow Tag Cleanup' URL? How many other Tag Wiki entries have 404 URLs because of this?
- What is an appropriate replacement Wiki text for tags that have been ... deprecated.
(I'm aware of What happened with the "Great Stack Overflow tag cleanup of 2012"? question. When I last looked, it just said that the URL went 404 because it was no longer needed. But that doesn't address the remaining references to the non-existent.)
