For questions about the behavior or usage of tags, which are keywords or labels that categorize and group your question with other, similar questions.

Use the tag for issues pertaining to tags, such as:

  • whether the creation of a new tag is required
  • defining the scope of usage of a tag, or whether a tag is being used appropriately within its scope; such questions should also use the tag
  • whether a tag needs to be marked as a synonym, merged with another tag, or burninated; such questions should also use the tag
  • whether retagging is required for questions using some particular tags, for reasons such as the tags becoming redundant, out of scope, inappropriate, etc.; such questions should also use the tag

Since such questions are usually meant to elicit discussion within the community, the tag is usually the most appropriate among the four mandatory tags for questions with this tag.
