Since Language Identification is now officially off-topic here, 6 of the tagged questions are closed and 10 other are blatantly off-topic:

a) Should we remove the tag altogether.

b) Can someone define the tag clearly or can we discuss make a good and clear tag wiki?

(b) was added after this answer

  • What do you mean? Tags can't be "closed".

  • but @jknappen my question is about the tag, about should we remove it or define it? Nov 11 '17 at 2:01

    @WiccanKarnak: I think that part of the question is already answered by bytebuster—the tag is here to stay. Nov 13 '17 at 9:01
  • ok @jknappen can you put the status-completed tag to this question now? Nov 13 '17 at 9:33
  • @WiccanKarnak: No I can't, this can only a diamond moderator do. Nov 13 '17 at 9:52
  • oh ok I think @prash can do this then? (was that a partial Yoda-speak there? ) Nov 13 '17 at 11:11

Since there are not-(yet)-deleted questions, removing a tag may leave these Q's untagged at all.

Also, language-identification can (in theory) be a part of a bigger question, but not a single purpose of the OP.

What about stating this clearly within the Tag Wiki? This may prevent the users from asking potentially bad questions.

  • Oh I didn't realize that (your argument can be argued) , I am really sorry , I pressed on rollback twice (and an ok on the following dialog box) but it doesn't seem to revert, can you maybe rollback it? Oct 5 '17 at 1:15

    I just updated the question, I think it pretty much covers what you said. Oct 5 '17 at 1:19
  • @WiccanKarnak, now it looks great; then please also unmark my answer as accepted, because now it only partially addresses the question (I provide with no text for Tag Wiki, maybe someone else could).
