There are currently a few year tags that should be removed (unless the year or number itself is an issue), probably added because of versioning.
- 2002 -> Done by jjnguy
- 2005 -> Done by KennyTM
- 2007 -> Boom, no more!
- 2008 -> Has popped up at least once on 2012-01-20
- 2009 -> Done by jjnguy
- 2010 -> Done (and done again 07/21/2011, it came back...)
- 2.0 -> Done
- 3.5 -> Done
- 4 -> Done
- 4.0 -> Done
- 6.8 -> Done by KennyTM
- 9.0 -> Done by jjnguy
- sp2 -> Done
- sp3 -> Done
- express -> Now a valid concept (node.js feature). Curses!!
- express-edition -> Eliminated
- lite -> Done
- xp -> Done - synonym
- crystal (As in Crystal Reports) -> synonym
Many of these are just
[product]-[year] without the hyphen or
[product][year]. In the 2010 category, Visual Studio 2010 and Sharepoint 2010 seem prevalent.
Ultimately, can we add a ban on these tags?
Other dangling tags (be careful, as some may be genuinely intended):
- Visual Studio: visual+studio -> Done, studio tag eliminated manually, blacklist request made.
- Visual Basic : visual+basic -> Done
- Visual C : visual+c -> Done (remaining are genuine)
- Visual C++ : visual+c++ -> Done
- vb.net : vb+.net -> Refused (too many!)
- Objective-C : objective+c -> Done
- iPhone-sdk: iphone+sdk -> Refused (over 1500 of these..)
- iPad-sdk: ipad+sdk
- iPhone-sdk AND iPad-sdk iphone+ipad+sdk
- Core-Data: core+data -> Done
- cocoa-touch: cocoa+touch
- google-apps: google+apps
- google-app-engine: google+app+engine and google+apps+engine -> Done
- node and node.js: node+node.js -> Done
- my and sql: my+sql -> Done
- unit-testing: unit+testing - Done (separate blacklist request on unit here)
