Under the newest tags section of Stackoverflow, I found the tags and which are likely to have been created as a result of a typo. Is there a way to suggest removal of such tags? If so, where? And how much rep is required for that privilege? I don't think suggesting a synonym would be appropriate in such a case.

According to this answer, it looks like the only recourse for me is to report such instances in meta.


These tags have no questions attached to them. They will be automatically removed within 24 hours in that case.

If there would be a few questions having these tags, it would be appropriate to retag them correctly. And then the tags will be removed within 24 hours.

  • I had edited the question which had the elipse tag and retagged it. That's why there are no questions now under it. – Dheeraj V.S. Dec 25 '12 at 11:16
