Currently the survey excerpt says
DO NOT USE this tag; questions about the annual Stack Overflow user surveys should be asked on Meta Stack Overflow, not here.
But this tag could be used on questions about surveys in general not only about the annual Stack Overflow surveys like
- Let's Start An Annual Meta Survey!
- Give each site a parallel site for polling, recommendations and subjective-ish stuff
- Are research survey questions expected to be handled with close votes?
Considering that survey has a lot of questions about the Stack Overflow Annual Survey, once this is "approved", the next step should be that a Meta SE Moderator rename the tag to something like
stackoverflow-annual-survey, which has less than 35 characters, then create the survey again.
My "first" thought was to use the same title as the revision 2 of Tags marked "do not use"? (Tags marked "do not use"?) but that question is about Stack Overflow and more specifically JBoss related questions, so I proposed an edit to that question to make the title more specific and to add some tags.
According to answer to Why can I tag a question with a tag marked 'DO NOT USE'? :
The "DO NOT USE" is purely a convention from the community to mark tags that are supposed to be removed. Those are not supposed to exist for long, only until the tag is eliminated and replaced by better tags. There never was a feature that would prevent those tags from being used.
There is a feature to blacklist tags, but that is developer-only and used very rarely. It is also generally not used on existing tags, but the tag is removed completely and then blacklisted, to avoid any confusion.
