Currently, there are 8 questions that are tagged .

Those 8 can easily be edited to no longer include the tag , but I would argue that it should be destroyed altogether. I am having a hard time imaging a question that I couldn't find a single tag for in our 4 pages of tags, but would still be an on topic question for this site.

What is the consensus on this? Are there valid cases for the tag?

  • I feel that the "untagged" tag is something from the beggining of the site and for some reason it is still there. This is only my guess. I am not responsible to know that. But, as I can see the list, most of the 8 questions belong to "data-request" tag and yes, I think it could be edited to remove the "untagged" and add another one.

The tag is automatically assigned when questions are migrated from other sites to Open Data, and all those questions should be tagged appropriately. There is no valid use case to tag a new or existing question with .

Secondly, is assigned if all tags on a question are deleted. This can happen because tags that only have a single question are automatically deleted after six months. In this case, too, the community should assign appropriate tags to those questions.

  • Thank you for helping me understand the purpose of this tag.

    I've gone through the site and removed the untagged and introduced tags as appropriate. Thanks for the clarification! Jan 27, 2014 at 5:08
