Since "identify-this-track" questions are deemed off-topic, does anyone have any objections to me burning the "identify-this-track" tag?

    It's a good idea to get rid of it if it is off-topic. With how common those questions are (and will be), maybe it's a good idea to also add it as a close reason.

    Close the questions along the way.

    I just re-tagged for now. If more close votes come in, we'll clean those up. May 26, 2015 at 16:37

    @JCPedroza that off-topic reason has now been added and has replaced the generic off-topic reason.

  • I've voted to close this question as a duplicate of Identification questions in general. What is allowed, and what is not? to help in organising the Meta discussions around the ID tags issue.

  • I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because is is obsolete as the tag doesn't exist any more and the identification questions are on-topic.
