Is there any point keeping on the main site around?

Related: Is there a way to block the recreation of the "bug" tag on the main site? (where soandos even commented about and drew attention to it, but to no avail apparently. At least was blacklisted successfully though.)

  • I was initially really confused because I thought you were suggesting to remove the bug tag from meta. And was thinking "ummm that's one of the build in meta tags", until I realized I just fail at reading comprehension.

  • @MichaelHampton: I rolled back your edit. Seems you got confused just like nhinkle did. I'm not talking about removing the "bugs" tag from meta.su; I'm advocating removal of the "bugs" tag from the main site because it seems to be a meta tag to me.

  • You might mention that in the question and remove the references to "meta tag" then, lest someone else get confused. :) Feb 4, 2013 at 6:42
  • @MichaelHampton: Why remove it? Have you seen just how many times the "meta tag" phrase has been used? A "meta tag" is a "meta tag", not a "tag (used) on meta"!

  • OK, I get it now. Feb 4, 2013 at 6:46
  • I was about to write the same thing as @nhinkle & Michael - for the rest it's not very clear and first thing that comes to my mind is - "hmm, I know bug is a tag used on meta, why would be want to remove it?"

  • @Sathya: Please re-word if you can make it easier to understand; was in a bit of a hurry and was terse as a result thinking it would be understood (esp. since the link pointed to the tag on the main site and not on meta). Anyway, now 2 mods have understood what I meant, and it's really you guys who would implement this in any case.

  • @Karan it's not really up to us to implement since we can't do mass tag removals (only mass tag replacements) - neither can we do blacklists - we're as powerful as Community members when it comes to tag removal & must be done manually. We can, however, ask the Dev/Comm team to do mass burninates but that's quite rare.

There are no more questions with tag

  • That's great, and I've requested over on the other thread to have it blacklisted as well.
