Given the discussion related to whether Engineering questions are on topic, we also need to consider whether the tag has any reason to exist. We discussed it in the chat room using the most recent questions, the transcript of which can be found at:

http://chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/71/conversation/discussion-of-the-engineering-tag

Should the tag exist?

I do not think the should remain. It does not add information to the questions that are very important for answering/categorizing it. Additionally, the existing questions that are on-topic don't need the tag while the ones that would rely on the tag are off-topic based on our discussions about engineering.

  • $\begingroup$ I agree. A tag that is used only for bad questions is not a good tag at all. And this seems to largely be the case here. $\endgroup$ – Manishearth Jul 10 '13 at 8:01
