I draw your attention to .

On the (currently) 10 questions with that tag...

  • 1 is about emoji in Gmail subject lines
  • 2 are about emoticons in Facebook
  • 3 are about icons in Trello
  • 1 is a request for an icon generator
  • 1 is about icons in Yahoo! Mail
  • 1 is a request for an icon search service (closed)
  • 1 is a request for sources of icons

This really seems to be a "meta-tag" to me. It can't be the only tag on the question, and it means different things to different people. I really doubt anyone is going to follow that tag so that they can answer questions in it. What's an "icon" expert, anyway?

    Getting the feeling that more and more the tags should just be the names of web apps and nothing else Commented Dec 17, 2015 at 18:53

    There are some non-web-app tags that definitely make sense, like security and privacy.
