There are some questions tagged , (atleast renamed), , and .

some more are , these are usualy related with GeoLocation so should renamed to and

Is there any use of these on StackOverflow? I think these should be deleted.

    old: Yes. huge: Yes. same: Yes. However, yes-no: No. Yes-no refers to the yes-no dialog box in VB, which is very specifc. The tag should definitely be cleaned up, though.

    @Telthien: If it really is that important, it should probably be renamed, or at least made a synonym of something clearer. [yes-no] by itself is a really lousy name for a tag. Jan 17, 2013 at 7:31
  • this is funny, because I am sure huge has been removed before: meta.stackexchange.com/q/147476/166277

  • @prusswan I guess that's one of those situations where everybody talked about them, but nobody did anything.

is used for different purposes: from boolean fields, to dialog boxes, GUI elements, yes/no questions, and boolean settings. It is used with too many purposes to be useful, and in most of the cases knowing that the question is, for example, about yes/no questions rather than other type of questions is not relevant.

is used to generically say the question is about something old, which is not relevant for a question. Would we tag all the Drupal 5 questions, or any questions about a old version of any software?

is used when the question is about something extremely large. It doesn't seem relevant, except for mathematic about large numbers, but for that there is already .

doesn't add anything to questions. Probably there are better tags to use, such as , , or , if they apply to the question.

Those tags should be burninated, but I would first check the questions using to see which ones could be tagged .

  • I see many questions in huge that refer to big databases. I suppose bigdata could serve for those?
