I removed the ethnicity tag because, as I noted in the edit summary, the question is not about "interacting with people of different ethnicities" which is what the tag excerpt says the tag is for. I also left a comment just now explaining why I don't think that the question is "answered in different ways depending on the reader's racial identity and ...

I think the best way to minimize disruptions is to make sure the changes to the tags are correct. Removing needed tags or adding unneeded tags is a huge disruption and requires intervention from people. Further, if a particular users edits/efforts are not highly reliable, this can cause other users to want to constantly review the user's edits. This seems ...

After searching the meta stackoverflow, apparently this tag "untagged" is used as a temporary state What causes a question to be tagged as [untagged]? Which means that these questions should be dealt with. Other related questions on meta: Review task for untagged questions Do not allow users to tag questions with "untagged"

It's not the same thing. Self-plagiarism also includes reusing your own work outside the context of publication. (For example, in coursework, or grant proposals.) Self-plagiarism can include re-use of a small bit of content (such as a methodology section) in essentially different papers, while duplicate publication refers to trying to publish the same paper ...

I disagree with the tag renaming. Sexual misconduct is often more about power or the abuse of power than it is about sex. Rape was once seen as a subset of 'sex' but is now appropriately being seen as the vicious form of abuse and crime that it is.

I think this might be a situation where a new tag is appropriate. Deferral of offers is not just specific to admissions, but can also apply to postdoc and faculty job offers.

In this case, meta is better than a flag since disagreements about edits are best resolved by the community and not by moderators acting unilaterally. While it was a moderator who removed the tag, it wasn't "moderation", but rather just a user tidying up how they thought best. Had you put the tag back and the user, who happens to be a moderator, removed it ...

I like the tag. I would like to see more representation from the humanities on Academia.SE and a tag is a nice way of showing how welcome this would be. I have a few comments about its implementation. About the tag wiki excerpt: The other 'displine' tags typically say, On standards or conventions specific to X as an academic discipline, and programs ...

TL;DR: The personal-statement tag was created to represent a non-standard meaning of the phrase. Tags should be unambiguous words or phrases used according to their most common usage in an academic context. So let's synonymize personal-statement to statement-of-purpose, its most common usage. The personal-statement tag was created by a user to distinguish ...

The EU and Europe are not the same. The tag usage, in my opinion, is pretty good and demonstrates a need for two separate tags (and possibly a third tag). There are questions which apply only to the EU. All the questions currently tagged EU seem correctly tagged. There are few EU specific questions tagged Europe. There are questions that apply to all of ...

I see the following: Significant parts of Europe, such as Norway and Switzerland, are not part of the EU Europe is likely to remain coherent for a long time, whereas it is possible that near-future political events might significantly change the definition of the EU. All of the questions that I see tagged with EU appear to be fine to tag with Europe. I ...

No, authors proofread and copy editors do a host of things. They are different processes.

The current situation is fine. eu is specific to grants and administrative aspects relating to the political entity of the European Union, and europe, although a very vague tag since academia varies vastly between European countries, describes the geographic entity. europe can be used to exclude the American or Asian context. They are not synonyms

The term for this concept in English is "sexual misconduct"; this is a term of art, whose meaning cannot necessarily be broken down to its constituent parts. Those who have chosen to tag questions with this label assumedly meant to use this term, and not some other term with different connotations. Therefore it would be inappropriate to rename this tag to ...

There are general questions in intellectual-property that don't fit in any of the more specific tags. For example, What level of sponsor ownership is normal for an industry-sponsored research project? and PhD student, issued contract at year 3 which will sign over intellectual property. Is it legal?. I am not in favor of eliminating intellectual-property.
