In this Meta question I went ahead and applied the new Meta . Is this a good Meta tag to have?

It seems like it would be a useful category to be able to search over. In particular, I'm aware of TRE 1 and TRE 2 (et seq.) that it would fit onto; perhaps there are others?

Or, will it be too general, or too meta-Meta, or too infrequently used, or ...?

    $\begingroup$ I think nobody cares too deeply about tags on meta. That being said, I think it's a good idea to have it. However, I wouldn't propose launching a strike force and add it to every question related. Just have an eye out and start using it from now on. $\endgroup$ Commented Jan 14, 2017 at 15:50
  • $\begingroup$ You know I always LIKE poll-style stuff. First off, I don't think meta tags are or should be of concern, and second, usually a tag is hardly bad here. $\endgroup$

Whatever you do, please don’t start a retagging marathon!

There is a user over at Travel who is working very very hard to fit even the absolute last question that was posted in 2011 and lost relevance two weeks later with the correct tags. Basically, if you go to Travel Meta, there are about five pages worth just tag edit’s of his. Please don’t do that.

If questions pop up due to edits, feel free to add a relevant tag to them. If they pertained to a historical event, just let them be.
