# What is the point of the 'model' tag?

has no tag wiki and seems like a pretty useless tag to me. Any thoughts? Does it have a scope or should it be deleted?

If my hunch is correct, model is supposed to be for questions about $\ldots$ models. But since almost everything in chemistry is explained by some sort of model we have to tag every question with .
BTW I'm kidding. The applicability of the tag to everything means it's either a "meta" tag or needs to be closed as "too broad". It seems no one thought this could be a tag so we didn't get enough tagging to notice it, but it seems it was a tag introduced in the early days of beta when stuff weren't that $\ldots$ consistent.
