Rather ironically, the OP on this question misspelled so we now have a tag called .

Verify the automatic language detection

How are these dealt with?

I didn't just want to retag it or as I'm not sure what that would then do with the orphaned tag.


You don't need to open a meta question or ask a mod for help with this kind of thing — just retag the question with the correct tag spelling. At 3:00 UTC all tags with zero questions are automatically deleted. A mod using the tag merge functionality creates a tag synonym, which is obviously incorrect in this scenario.


Tag merging to the rescue!

Fixed, thanks.

  • Thank you. In future would it be sufficient to to link to something like this in chat & see if a mod picks it up? – Tetsujin Jan 23 '17 at 8:46

    We get notified if a post is flagged or a question is asked on Meta, so this works better than just posting to chat. – nohillside Jan 23 '17 at 8:50
  • Can the pointless synonym be deleted now? – grg Jan 23 '17 at 16:15

    @grgarside Yepp, as soon as I'm in front of a real computer again :-) – nohillside Jan 23 '17 at 16:29

    That's the issue these days, isn't it? I use a computer so rarely now that I don't come here nearly as often as I once did. – Daniel Jan 25 '17 at 16:38

    @Daniel Absolutely. Unfortunately the mod functions are hard to access/use from an iPhone – nohillside Jan 25 '17 at 17:02
