There is a newly created tag with two closed questions using the tag. Since User Experience doesn't relate to specific frameworks, should we delete it or post a DO NOT USE in the Tag Wiki Excerpts?

Both questions were totally off topic and had no answers and no UX-relevant information, I just deleted the posts. The tag will disappear from the system soon as it's no longer on any questions.

Maybe we should do the same with the closed question having airplane and aircraft? –  Benny Skogberg Oct 5 '12 at 12:06
    
@BennySkogberg poof. Though note closed questions scoring -1 or lower with no answers are auto-deleted after a month –  Ben Brocka Oct 5 '12 at 13:04
    
Cool, auto-cleanup on *.SO –  Benny Skogberg Oct 5 '12 at 13:09
    
I just did similarly to the backgound-images tag (note the typo), but it didn't remove it from the list for me (perhaps there's just a lag). –  Kit Grose Oct 9 '12 at 9:52
    
@KitGrose yeah, everything is cached for widely varying periods of time. Tag related stuff seems to take 5-10 minutes. It's fun when you mix up a tag synonym and do it twice and have no idea what the final result was for several minutes... –  Ben Brocka Oct 9 '12 at 14:07
    
I'm still seeing it now (it's been there empty for 12+ hours). Worried I've missed a step! –  Kit Grose Oct 9 '12 at 22:38
    
@KitGrose do you mean the tag page or the list? Only the properly spelled version shows in the list for me. The /questions/tagged/ page always shows up even if the tag doesn't "exist", it just shows 0 questions –  Ben Brocka Oct 10 '12 at 13:35
    
@BenBrocka it's now not showing in the list for me anymore. No worries! –  Kit Grose Oct 10 '12 at 22:35
