To organize the work I propose to do one letter by answer (eventually regourping letter with one or two occurences of tag)

When I want to tag some question I often fall on tag without description and this can be very annoying.

For example :
resolution of what problem ? screen ?
or even worth :
you can have a size for everything, and as much as size matters tagging correctly question also matters It isn't possible to force people who create new tags to add a definition even small because obviously there is some serious issue with some.

Maybe a campaign of definition and (eventually) suppression could be launch to solve some tagging issues ?

Edit 1:
I also find once at least assiociated with and what is the point of tag when there is already text processing tags...

Edit 2:
Finally watch the 12 last tag created:
12 last created tag snapshot

There are only 3 description, and one tag is . What does that mean ? is it a tool ? a software ? or just an advanced question ?

    This is a good initiative but please do not add definitions to the tag descriptions, that is not what they're for! If you want to do this kind of work (and that's great), read this blog post. The excerpt should not be a definition unless it is an obscure concept, it should instead be an explanation of when this tag should be used.

  • @terdon ok I will take this in consideration, also thank you for the tag edit link, I didn't know how to make a tag link. Also there is just in letter A very stange question and eitheir wiki and excerpt are almost impossible to write without the input of others, like tag /advanced. I will continu to update the list and write excerpt and wiki if possible but I can't define some tag and they should be define

  • We do need to organize some tag cleaning but this isn't the way to do it. It's impossible to review a monster thread like this. If there's discussion to be had about a tag, it needs a separate meta question, one per tag or group of closely-related tags. We don't need a discussion for every tag, for example advanced is very obviously a meta tag and should be removed. Feb 26 '14 at 3:29

    resolution is used pretty consistently for what it was intended, which is display resolution, but it wouldn't hurt to rename the tag to screen-resolution or display-resolution. size is about the size of something; while it doesn't make sense on its own, it has an objective meaning, so it's fine.

Letter B

no complete yet I will add the rest in a while

Excerpt missing
use for wallpaper and background task

I propose: POSIX binary to get the basename of a path I propose: An arbitrary precision calculator language

imperative because use for 2 very different meaning

Excerpt incorrect

No problem


Letter A

No defintion (and often not used more than 2 or three time)

very strange

  • I haven't gone through all your list, there's just too much stuff. authorization caught my eye: it's a clear concept (if not very well understood to people without a security background), see Security.SE. Feb 26 '14 at 3:33
  • @Gilles hope you get some sleep, I understand what an authorization is but it miss an excerpt because it's used for so different topics
