This is a follow-up of this question about how to proceed with the tag . Sorry for the series of questions, but as every one of them is slightly different I thought it best to create a new one.

I have now deleted the tag in all instances where it was mistagged. Following Anyon's upvoted answer that a tag should not be created, I retagged some of them where bureaucracy would fit with , as they actually also are about administration issues, so I think that is a good alternative. There is now no question left with the tag , so I guess it can be deleted.

As per my suggestion to create a new tag for organizing papers, articles etc. I have also created the new tag which I think is an OK name for that - please suggest different names if you can think of a better one. I will try to retag the questions that fit into within the next days.

  • You should give some wiki to the new tag. You are probably the best one to do so since you've looked at all of these recently.

  • @Buffy I already wrote a short description, but it has to be reviewed first before it will be visible. I will also add a more detailed wiki entry soon.

I suggest that a better name for this tag might be document-organization. I added some wiki to indicate that the tag shouldn't be used for filing complaints or applications, but the name is currently likely to lead to such usage.

  • Yes, that is a good suggestion. I will change the tag accordingly.

  • OK, I see that I cannot change a tag name. That will need to be done by a moderator I guess.

  • Shouldn't that be a mod action? If a mod changes the name I don't think it will disrupt the top question listing order. Maybe you have superpowers that I don't, but adding a new tag and retagging is probably not the best way to do it.

  • I think we wrote the comment at the same time: I (sadly) don't actually have superpowers and thus did not change anything.

  • Go to the Ivory Tower and ping one of the mods to look at it. And, thanks for all the "maintenance" you do on this site.

    @Sursula I've renamed the tag, thanks for the tag maintenance. Mar 31, 2023 at 13:10

I've renamed the tag, so that we can consider this .

About the deletion of the older tag, mods can't directly delete tags, but as explained in this post on the main Meta, tags not associated with any question are automatically destroyed at 03:00 UTC every day.
