We still need feedback on these tags!

Esp. the "Not Sure" ones.

I have started a list of tags that need some cleanup per request. Please contribute.


Not sure:




--> DONE



--> DONE


If you think a tag should stay please mention why.

When tags have no questions associated with them, they eventually get killed off. No one seems to know how long that takes however (Discussion on that in When do tags finally die?) which is why we need to make sure they don't have any questions.

  • save as a tag doesn't explain anything. I don't think it should exist - should be burniated.

  • parallel-port belongs in the same group as serial-port - both still existing pieces of hardware with probably very special problems - although not too frequent.

  • Either this or that should probably be duped to the other. Feb 27, 2013 at 21:06
  • @EliahKagan Probably that to this, seeing as this is newer. Most of those tags are gone I think. What do you think?

I don't see what's wrong with , but the point is moot since it's already been removed.

and are very obviously good tags about a specific kind of hardware or software. I'm puzzled as to how they got into your list.

Unix & Linux has a cloning tag, about cloning a Linux installation. The tag seems worthwhile for Ubuntu too.

strikes me as a bad idea since Ubuntu's sh is not bash. A question tagged is presumably about writing a #!/bin/sh script.

  • Well in that case I think sh should be burniated. Unless you think otherwise.
