Someone asked the following question: League of legends Tristana strategy

He created a tag while doing so, [tristana]. First of all, I can't imagine how that tag would be usefull to the site. Therefore, I think the tag should be deleted. Is retagging (removing the tag) enough to accomplish so, or does something else have to happen?

1 Answer 1


Removing the tag from all questions effectively deletes it after a day or two.

See also the answer to "How can we get rid of misspelled and unused (or "zombie") tags?":

Tags not associated with any question are pruned every 24 hours on the backend. Tag counts shown on the tags tab and in the tags autocomplete are also calculated once daily.

"Tristana" seems to be in this case a (playable?) character or character class. While I couldn't find any meta post qualifying if we want such tags, the fact that it's the first instance of such I know of and it isn't needed to find the question (the name is in the title as well) indicates that it can be safely deleted without compromising this site's usability or SEO strategy.

    I agree that this tag should be deleted, but we do have character-specific tags. tf2-[class]

  • Pruning unused tags is disabled on Arqade, I believe. Apr 6, 2013 at 20:26

    I thought Arqade just didn't prune tags with only one question - tags that aren't on anything should still be removed, right?

  • @SevenSidedDie: Pruning "low activity" tags is disabled; pruning unused ones works just fine. Apr 12, 2013 at 14:33
  • @Martin Excellent; that's good to know. Apr 12, 2013 at 15:14
