I believe I made the tag by accident at one point. when I made another question about it today, I noticed there were 2 tags: and . I retagged all my older questions under the tag to but now there is still with 0 questions.

Can this be removed or will it be removed after a certain time of no questions?

If a tag has 0 instances at the end of the day, it is removed from the system. So retagging it away is the way to go for this.

A tag with no questions (or just 1 question) will be removed after a while. You can also ask a moderator (via the "flag for moderator attention" or ask in the chat room) to merge the tags.

    A 0-count tag is eliminated at the end of the day. A 1-count tag is eliminated after 6 months. If there's only one instance and the tag should be removed, one should simply untag the question. – Grace Note Feb 23 '11 at 17:31
  • @Grace you're ruining my scheme of generating more work for the mod team :( – Oak Feb 23 '11 at 17:33
  • Curious: as soon as you divest yourself from moderation, you want to make more work for the moderators? :P – Raven Dreamer Feb 26 '11 at 18:29

This is the effect of caching; the tag will disappear from the list when it's refreshed.
