There was one time I saw a tag that was used for only one question, but just after the question was created the tag got edited out. I think (not totally sure) that it had a tag wiki. When I clicked on the tag shown in the revision history, though, I could not find the tag wiki, which makes me wonder if the tag actually still existed.
My question is, does a tag still exist when it is are edited out of the only question that uses it? Or does it not get removed until 6 months after it was created?
