So our first round of proposals for the Structured Tag Cleanup Initiative is about to close, and it's looking like career will be first up to the chopping block. Career questions are tricky in that people, despite the tag wikis and tag wiki excerpts and the constant retags, still use it on a constant basis.
Stack Exchange won't lock (i.e. blacklist) a tag from getting new questions if it has hundreds of questions in it as it provides a bad experience to the user. So instead, what I'd like to propose is renaming career to something more jargony—stci-career—in order to help dissuade random passersby from using it while we clean it up.
This tag would be temporary, and—should there be any questions left—would be renamed back to career once the cleanup is finished. We'd of course have the usual slate of (ineffective) tag wiki warnings saying not to use the tag.
Good idea, bad idea?
