There's no point in shuffling around tags on questions that are off-topic or bad to begin with: if we can save these highly-upvoted questions, now's the time to do it.
1. Merge candidates
There are two questions that were closed as being exactly duplicates of earlier questions:
- https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/questions/26076/what-are-some-handy-tools-in-windows-that-makes-programmers-life-easy → https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/questions/1913/what-are-the-must-have-development-tools-for-windows
- https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/questions/25181/what-are-the-symptoms-events-or-actions-of-a-software-death-cycle → What are the warning signs of impending doom to watch out for on a project?
Is there any reason why these questions should not be merged, effectively deleting the software tagged versions?
If not, can these questions be improved so that they can be reopened? Otherwise, flag or vote for deletion so we can clean them up.
2. The rest
Can these questions be saved by a heroic edit and community pruning?
If any of these questions can be saved, please be bold and do so: flag bad answers for deletion, combine piecemeal answers into a single canonical one, rewrite the question, flag for reopening.
Otherwise, the end game for these questions is deletion; so if there's something about these questions that necessitate them being here, let's whip them into shape.
