The Stack Apps topic help makes it clear that all questions here must pertain to Stack Exchange in some way:

If your question is about …

  • the Stack Exchange API
  • applications built on the Stack Exchange API
  • scripts or browser extensions that work with Stack Exchange sites

… it is welcome here.

Please look around to see if your question has been asked before. It’s also OK to ask and answer your own question. ...

(Emphasis added)

Meanwhile the tag has 24 questions and no tag wiki.

Looking at the current questions, it seems to me that adds no value to those questions.
Compare to related tags like , , (not yet needed here but used on Meta Stack Exchange) -- which potentially can be used for Searching/Filtering/Classifying questions in a useful way.

So, should we remove the tag?

If you say no, then please also suggest a useful tag excerpt.

Yes. I would agree that the tag serves no purpose.

With only 24 questions, let us lose it.


Based on a reasonable response for Stack Apps, this has now been done.

Merged into (which many of the questions already had) and deleted from those posts where it didn't apply.

These 24 questions were affected:
    2332, 2371, 2372, 2373, 3045, 3136, 3408, 4457, 4617, 4699, 4888, 4942,
    6155, 6189, 6652, 6716, 6771, 6773, 7242, 7445, 7679, 7833, 7946, 8264.
