I've been going through tags today, and I came across the camera tag. Is this tag really valuable? It seems rather redundant, and I think it runs the high risk of becoming overused and rather useless. Just about every question on this site so far could be tagged with camera, as the vast bulk of our questions are camera related, with the minority falling into the post-processing and printing categories.
Seems redundant to me.
Yeah, I'm for killing it. In some cases, body might be appropriate, and camera-recommendation often is.
I went through and removed the tag from all existing questions. Now it is dead.
Lazy New Year's Day? Good stuff :-) It doesn't seem to be quite dead yet though - see e.g. the [camera] Top Users page. That may be some of SE's aggressive caching waiting to rebuild though.– Philip Kendall ModJan 1, 2014 at 20:24
That page has gone now, so I'm guessing it was just caching.– Philip Kendall ModJan 3, 2014 at 15:14
I just found this tag today and came to pretty much the same conclusion: it's not going to add any value as de facto all our questions relate to a camera in one way or another. I'd suggest we delete the tag, but is there anything we can do to stop it coming back again?
