I found a tag named . As this tag is only used in one question and there are no followers I assume that it was an incorrect tag. Taken the discussion about Zombie tags only tags without associated questions are erased (How can we get rid of misspelled and unused (or "zombie") tags?).

How can I report/delete a tag which was used once but is a zombie?

    Edit the post, correct the tag. Since only that post used the tag, it will get deleted after 24 hours (I guess, don't know the perfect time) Dec 15, 2013 at 17:45
  • I just removed the tag. It will be deleted in 24 hours as @AshishNitinPatil said. Dec 15, 2013 at 17:46

Like I said in my comment, JoshC removed the tag from the post. Given that the tag is no longer used in any question, it will be deleted at 03:00 UTC.


If it's just misspelled, edit the question and remove/rename the tag, and it will be removed. All tags with no questions will be cleared out by an automatic script that runs once a day, so it'll be gone today or tomorrow.
