    If a tag leads them to think they are on topic, then someone isn't writing the tag wiki/excerpt as they should. – Braiam Nov 1 '13 at 13:54

Yes, since people actually use that tag it makes it easy for us to find topics about >:-D

We also have a tag used 63 times. And , , even .

A Mint question could be valid if you have Ubuntu/Mint with Ubuntu/Mint in a VBox and there is a problem with the communication between the two. Or with a dual-boot setup.

As long as there is a relation with a supported Ubuntu operating system and secondly a relation with Mint it is valid. Solely Mint is not valid.

    I would suggest the tag be removed, because there is no way I can think of where both a) there is a situation that involved a partition with Min on it or something and b) it is proper to actually use the Mint tag. – Richard Oct 24 '13 at 18:32
