Posting on Web Applications does not require signing up. New users can just come in and post their questions. However, they can't create the orangedox tag unless they also have 300 reputation. But, higher reputation users will shortly come along and add the tag if it fits. Keep in mind that you can't funnel all your support to Web Applications, as it has ...

As long as the questions asked here are on-topic for Web Apps, they'll be welcome, although I expect that they'll require some very specific knowledge that may not be well-represented here. If you're planning on answering the questions then that's all to the good. I would caution you, however, against attempting to turn Web Apps into your general-support ...

In this case just retag the questions. The new-twitter tag will then just disappear from the system. If there were 10's or even 100's of questions with the tag I'd create a synonym, but for such a low number it's not worth it. Even as a low rep user you can suggest the edits and when they get accepted you'll get some more reputation.

Only tags associated with questions or answers that were up- or down-voted in the current week (or month, or whatever time-period selected) are displayed on that page. The current week begins on 2013-11-17 at 00:00:00 UTC. Vidar hasn't gained or lost any reputation from up- or down-votes during the current week. His reputation so far has come from an ...

That seems to be the very definition of a meta tag. No one is going to be an expert in all errors. No one is going to follow that tag. It cannot, by itself, describe the question. Most damning of all, it is useless without some other tag to say what app there is an error. I say it should be burninated.

This should be done re-actively, not pro-actively. If at all. Tags use US English spelling by default. If it gets to the point where there are plenty of users tagging with Proper English (UK) or some other non-US version, then a tag may be helpful. Until then there would be no need to set it up as most spelling differences occur on the second half of ...

A while back there was some issue with the wildcard expansion generating excessively long URLs that would be rejected by the web server. Jeff imposed an expansion limit as a workaround, which seems to limit the wildcard matches to the top 20 most popular applicable tags.

There is one: inbox-by-gmail. Generally speaking, we only create tags when there are questions to put it on. The system doesn't allow for tags to be created ahead of time.

Probably not. At least not now. What could someone possibly ask about the Web app? As you say, most of the action is in their native smartphone apps. With the tag I would expect to start seeing a ton of questions related to the service as a whole. Why was my driver late? Is there a way to identify an Uber car? Why didn't I receive a receipt? And ...

Because it's a generic tag and is simply too broad. There is no app called "Google". One could argue for the search engine, but that's why we have google-search. You'll also note that the tag wiki provides further guidance: Use this tag if you're talking about Google services in general. You're not talking about Google in general, but Google Maps ...

I have blacklisted error.

This also depends on if the general version of the tag relates to the company or to a product. For example, on a Trello question about using the cards, you would have trello and maybe trello-cards. Here, Trello might seem general, but it's specifically about the product. Hence, in that situation, you wouldn't remove trello and leave the question with just ...

I've added the tag. The system periodically deletes one-off used tags, so that may explain why it got deleted

Some of the questions seem reasonable, such as the one about using GitHub to host a website, among others: How to use a github as a hosting for a small static website? How does Trello store my information? Web video sharing service with “fair use” protection? Is there really no way to get JIRA Studio to work with Mercurial? These questions at least seem to ...

Point taken. I should have rejected the suggested edits. I have reworked the tag wiki and renamed the tag from ip to ip-addresses


5

The tag list has been cleared. application should show 0 posts currently.

apphub has been created. It could use a wiki and an excerpt, especially guidance for what questions are okay for Web Apps and what questions should be posted to Stack Overflow.

All that remains is a leftover migration stub from a rejected migration (that a moderator needs to delete) and a migration stub that will be deleted by the Roomba in a few days.

Generally speaking, tags aren't created until there is at least one question to add it to. (It's a feature of the system; you can't create a tag in a vacuum. There has to be a question where those with enough reputation can add the tag.) While someone has gone and created the tag here, both of the questions you cite seem to be development questions, not web ...

I've cleaned up both the meta tags


5

seems reason enough to me :) Renaming has been known to cause massive issues (on another SE site) so for just four Qs I suggest the mechanism, if to be renamed, be to edit in the new and edit out the old (ie 'manual'). This Q reached 40 views with no sign of disagreement and some feint signs of agreement so I have swapped the tags out. youtube-streaming ...

I've gone ahead and created alexa-skill and added an excerpt. It could probably use a full description.

Another double tag that is frequently used and shouldn't be in most cases is: google-drive google-documents. Cases that shouldn't include both tags. when the question is about Google Documents text processing features. ... Cases that could include both tags: when the question Google Documents properties displayed in Google Drive ...

The merge is done. facebook-timeline is now the master tag.

I have cleaned up the tagging & photo-tagging tags. To assist with the cleanup I needed to create some new tags: google-plus-tags instagram-tags twitter-tags letterboxd-tags I have also created a synonym to map all facebook-tagging to facebook-tags EDIT: The tags tag has now been cleaned up too.

I would tend to agree. Really the only way it has any utility is as a catch-all for any issue tracking apps that don't have enough questions to support the tag. (Tags on single questions get removed after some time.) But that's a really dubious reason. I see you've done some clean up. I'll do some as well. If we can get it off of all questions it'll be auto-...

We don't want people who aren't well-versed with how Stack Exchange works making tags willy-nilly. The general guidance is to use the closest tag you can and include text in your question asking for the tag to be created. A user with sufficient privileges can take care of that and remove the text at the same time. Of course, one hopes that the lack of an ...
