Both and have > 5 questions, no wiki excerpt, and a poor "tag score".

Should we give them wikis and define a proper use for them, or burninate them?

Apparently it was decided to burninate murder. Status completed!

I'm not running for mod, so I'll help you out with the more controversial solution:

Burn both tags.

Within the context of this Stack, it makes no sense to be an expert in or . They are too broad and to general to be of help for . These tags are meta-tags that should be deleted.


to me looks middle-of-the-road enough that it's not going anywhere soon. It's one of the tags in the "other aspects of a question" category I'm not a fan of, but also not aggressively against. But the questions mostly seem to be about the education system in a fictional work, so that's fine. And that is a topic that people could genuinely be knowledgable about.

I would say that we need to:

  • Give it a tag wiki and excerpt (were you volunteering? :) )
  • Review the questions tagged with it to make sure it belongs.
    • Bad Use: "What is this story that took place in a school?"
    • Proper Use: "How do OWLs in Harry Potter work?"

is more sketchy to me. Only 2 of them seem to be about the concept of murder, the other 4 are about a story where a murder happened to take place. I'd say at least remove it from 4 of those 6 questions, and I'm very skeptical about the Harry Potter one. That only leaves one question I think it "about ". I think we all know that I recommend there :)
