The following tags are overly broad, misapplied, meta tags 12, ambiguous or are otherwise problematic.

You can help!


Do not simply fix the tag and nothing else. Very often there are multiple inappropriate tags, not to mention there are almost always spelling, grammar, and/or formatting issues to be addressed. Fix the whole question. While you're at it, check any answers on the question for similar issues.

On the other hand, don't bother fixing questions that should be closed and/or deleted. Just vote/flag them as appropriate.

Remember: we don't migrate crap.

Pro-tip #1

If you are removing tags from a large number of questions, it's better to go to the last question on the last page of all questions with that tag and work your way backwards. This prevents you from having to deal with the cache not reflecting your edits on the question list combined with browser-cache issues.

If you haven't visited most of these questions, you'll know what you changed because the link for the question will have a different color.

Pro-tip #2

Please edit in small batches and be mindful of front-page flooding – we don't want the entire front page to be filled with edits of old questions. Do three or five edits at a time, then come back later.

Let us know when a tag has been cleaned up. Even better, let us know about tags you think need cleaning.

  • HTML5 adds various things like the <audio> and <video> tags, which I can see people asking about problems with from an end-user perspective. – Compro01 Nov 14 '13 at 2:17
  • Why wouldn't we cover that under "HTML"? We don't have tags for other versions of HTML. – ale Nov 14 '13 at 13:37
  • I would imagine that we don't have tags for other versions of HTML because the previous version is almost 14 years old, so it can safely be assumed that if one talks about just "HTML", they mean "HTML 4.01". – Compro01 Nov 14 '13 at 15:56
  • Still and all, I don't think we need to distinguish between them on a site about Android. A site like Stack Overflow, sure. Heck, I'm not sure we even need the HTML tag. – ale Nov 14 '13 at 16:17

    Since we are not on a developer site, I think we can change all "html" and "htmlx" tagged questions to "browser" since it will be a browser problem (or a programming problem and so it doesn't belong here). – Matthieu Harlé Nov 18 '13 at 14:43
  • Macros is now clear – Chenmunka Nov 18 '13 at 19:35
