I am new to having some tag privileges, and it appears I have just created an "april-fools" tag.

I know there are people with strong feelings about tagging, so I'm just posting this to let them know what I have done, and they can delete, or merge, or do with it what they will.

I don't plan on doing much with tags, but that one seemed appropriate.

    $\begingroup$ What exactly does this tag achieve? Why create it in the first place? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I was reading someone's post, and it was seeming like nonsense, and then I realized "oh, this is an April fools thing". I didn't think it bad enough to close vote, or down vote, but thought "this should be marked as April fools in some way". I recently got the privilege to change tags, so boom, I created it as part of adding that tag. But I really don't understand all the ins and outs of creating tags, so if people think this is a bad/unnecessary tag, feel free to go ahead and delete it. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ An entire tag for a single question is never useful, indeed. $\endgroup$
