I just saw we still have a "graphics" tag.

Seems untidy since it could be applied to literally every question we have. Whether or not a question is tagged with it appears to be completely random.

Can we - I believe the technical term is - "burninate" it?

bump It looks like we're agreed that a graphics Q&A is no place for graphics questions, how do we begin stamping them out?

I saw a mention of an obstacle being questions only tagged "graphics", which may need to be manually re-tagged. If this is the case, can someone post some magic search link that lists such questions? https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/graphics lists all graphics questions, but I can't see a way to see questions only tagged with "graphics".

    +1 for the Q title alone :) But yes, I agree.

  • I am for this as well but if we are going to do it we need to make an to the 20 questions that have this tag.

  • Oh sure, kill it when I'm 1 tick away from getting a badge for it :) Actually agree.. it's kind of a stupid tag.

  • Looks like someone's already made a magic search: data.stackexchange.com/graphicdesign/query/232959/… :) Not too many according to that query.

Can we kill too, while we are at it (for the same reasons)?

    I'd disagree, 90%+ of our questions are about design not art, but we do welcome visual arts questions, so I think it has a purpose. Looking at the tagged questions, some are mistagged but most are actually questions about art and not design. Jun 4, 2015 at 15:54

    what if we refined this one to 'fine-art'? That might give it a bit more clarity.

Does it fit as a synonym of ?

On first thought that seems like the best thing to do with it to me.
