is back, and nearly 170 137 122 questions strong but we've whittled it down to a handful of questions from nearly 170, and four of those are already closed. On the surface, it looks like someone burninated and . Can I get some help editing the few salvageable posts and closing/deleting the rest?

Please remember, if you're going to remove from a question, make darn sure you're fixing everything that's wrong with that question, because people looking through the untagged list after you won't see it anymore.

  • I don't know if we have one of those meme graphic things for posse requests. If you know of one, feel free to edit it in.

  • And for goodness' sake, don't create new tags related to interview questions again! I've had to nuke a few variations on that tag over the past few days. There was a reason it was burninated, people. If the question can stand alone without knowing it's an interview question, it's worth keeping. If not, it's NARQ/Too Localized.

    I went through the list and 1) edited/retagged on-topic questions 2) closed a handful of the blatantly off-topic ones. All that's left are off topic, polls, interview questions and generally broad NARQs but I'm lazy to go through them and close/delete them all. Aug 29, 2012 at 21:10

Ok, the remaining questions are:

...all closed. I don't really feel like these have a place on Stack Overflow, but they're fairly well-written, well-answered questions so I didn't delete them straight away: if you can think of a better place for them or simply disagree that they should be disallowed, now's your chance to speak up.

And yes, there was a bit of hubub last night over the mass-retagging of 60 or so questions as , so here's a reminder to all: don't fix one bad tag by making another one worse.

Thanks to everyone for their help!

    Those four read to me like they'd find a fine home on Software Engineering. With the possible exception of the one about finding projects.

  • Go ahead and migrate some/all then. They'll need good tags there as well.

    BTW: casper's taking this opportunity to review the rest of the closed questions in lang-agnostic. Quite a bit of crud collected there over the years.

    @Shog9: I don't think it is collected. Last time in July, there were over 500 questions re-tagged to language-agnostic by him.
