How do I know what tags should and should not be used on this site? I know you discuss a few here in meta, but what makes that official? I have re-tagged two posts in the last week to only see issues with using those tags.

If it's preferred and easier that I don't retag anything then I can do that too. I'm not trying to make more work for others (as it appears it must, since it was pointed it out).

The tags that should not be used should all have a description stating that in the tag description that appears when you are typing the tag. Examples include , and . There are others, but I don't know what they all are off the top of my head.

You can also follow the Structured Tag Clean-Up Initiative here on Meta if you are interested in helping to clean up the bad tags that exist.
