Should we get rid of the "latex" tag? Only 7 questions have been tagged "latex", four of which have been closed and the most recent of which is heading that way. There is already a Stack Exchange site for TeX and LaTeX questions, and I do not feel it is appropriate to ask LaTeX-specific questions here as they aren't really questions about mathematics. I can't think of a true mathematics question which would fit better under the tag "latex" than under another tag describing what is being done with LaTeX. So can we have the tag deleted?

ok -- I deleted the tag, and deleted the closed questions with no answers in that tag.

  • $\begingroup$ @isaac is this really common enough to appear on the dialog? Diamond mods can migrate to any site.. $\endgroup$ Mar 25, 2011 at 21:35

And to follow up about the different sites, please do send your TeX/LaTeX questions over to us at http://tex.stackexchange.com; and then while you're over there, why not stay awhile and have a cup of TeA? We're really a friendly lot.
