The tag is pure noise on this site, as all questions are about SharePoint.

Is there any way to ban this tag?

Don't ask this on meta.so as it is site specific.

I added ^sharepoint$ to the intrinsic tags for this site, so it won't be allowed and it will be removed from any migrated questions as well.

I also removed any existing tags too.


Equally important: to get users to tag with specific SharePoint version.

Se my post here Is there a way to "force" or suggest the selection of tags?


I'm not a mod so I don't know for certain if there's a way to "ban" a tag.

However, I'm pretty sure that if every question with the sharepoint tag is retagged appropriately and the sharepoint tag is manually removed from the database users who start typing in "sha..." when they're tagging their questions should no longer be prompted to use "sharepoint" as a tag. Instead they should see sharepoint-2010, sharepoint-2007, etc.

  • Until the next person that creates it as a tag again :(
