Formerly one of the possible reasons for closing a question, it has been superseded by the "not constructive" close reason. This tag is for questions *about* subjectivity, *not* for indicating that your question is subjective.

Formerly "Subjective" was one of the possible reasons for closing a question, a partial time line following up this close reason:

  1. Around May 2011 it was superseded by the "not constructive" close reason.

  2. In May 2013 "not constructive" was also deprecated as a close reason and split into "unclear what you’re asking", "too broad" and "primarily opinion-based".

  3. In October 2019 "too broad" was renamed to "needs more focus" and "unclear what you're asking" was renamed to "Needs details or clarity" within the New Post Notices rollout on Stack Overflow project. The "Primarily opinion-based" close reason has been kept unchanged.

This tag has also been used for discussions if subjective questions should be allowed and on which of the Stack Exchange sites they would fit.

This tag should not be used to indicate that your question is subjective.
