Following up on, Why do we have both a [money] and a [currency] tag?, there are currently 2
14 questions remaining that use the money tag. After these questions have been edited the [money] tag may be made a synonym of [currency].
The consensus, to the best of my knowledge and belief, has not changed with regard to the [currency] tag — it should be retained. The discussion for the [money] tag took place in comments.
On April 11, 2021, I changed the [currency] tag excerpt to read,
Questions about a system of money in general use in a particular country or its relationship to international trade, such as, exchange rates or reserve currencies.
(Though crypto- and digital currencies may deserve mention.)
And changed the [money] tag excerpt to read,
Questions related to the political aspect of money. If the question names a currency, consider [currency] as an alternative. If a tag implies money, the [money] tag is unnecessary or redundant.
But, in fact, the [money] tag is "too broad" because it is a meta-tag and for that reason should not be used, nor removed (someone might use it anew); thus the recommendation that it be made a synonym of [currency].
Do not use meta-tags in questions. Here are some tips to help you determine whether a tag is a meta-tag:
- If the tag can’t work as the only tag on a question, it’s probably a meta-tag. Every tag you use should be able to work, more or less, as the only tag on a question. Meta-tags, like [beginner], [subjective], and [best-practices], are not helpful by themselves – they do not communicate anything about the content of the question.
The [money] tag doesn't work well "as the only tag on the question," because the question is, in some way, about how the money is used, rather than about money itself.
Note: Of the original 64 questions tagged [money], 50 have already been re-tagged. I posted the "question" more as a reminder and notification that additional re-tagging needs to be completed.
