I came across the tag while handling a lost user.

Now, the tag seems to be about a specific thing. It just doesn't seem clear what that is. It's oddly consistent over how its used, but I have no idea what feature it is.

It lacks a tag wiki to boot.

It is mentioned in The Many Memes of Meta, but it doesn't feel like the Stack Exchange™ MultiCollider SuperDropdown™

So what is (or was) the GlobalTag MegaBlender™?

It's the Filtered Questions function on stackexchange.com.

You can use it to keep track of questions in certain tags across the Stack Exchange network.

IMHO, this tag should be merged into :

Tag filters (AKA the Stack Exchange™ GlobalTag MegaBlender™), as seen at https://stackexchange.com/filters.

  • Amusingly - I was debating whether we needed the tag so I guess its handled. – Journeyman Geek Mar 28 at 15:33
  • @Rob No that's not what that question is about. Favorite and ignored were only mentioned as exampled of where wildcard was already supported. The original announcement is deleted for whatever reason, but outlines the very first bare-bones version of tag filters across the network. – animuson Mar 28 at 22:54
