    I think duplicate's a bit of a stretch for this... probably just related. – Aza Apr 20 '13 at 22:59
  • @KnightswhosayNi so long as it serves as a signpost for future searchers it is ok – Billy Moon Apr 20 '13 at 23:21

Retag your question. It will be removed when the cleanup scripts run next, at 03:00 UTC to(day/night).

See What happens to "zombie" tags? for more info about tag deletion.

  • It does not run at midnight. It runs at 03:00 UTC (also midnight UTC is in 1 hour 30 minutes). – animuson Apr 20 '13 at 22:28
  • Thanks, changed. – Aza Apr 20 '13 at 22:29

    @Seth: I watched a zero-use tag one night when I was bored, and it disappeared around 03:00 with all the other tag stuff that runs at that time. – animuson Apr 20 '13 at 23:07

    @animuson: how bored did you have to be before you started watching a zero-use tag's approach to annihilation? And, I may regret asking, but how long did you watch for? And what did you do afterwards, when there was no more zero-tag to occupy your mind..? – David Thomas Apr 20 '13 at 23:23
