We're pretty settled on removing it, I think.

So how do we go about doing that?

  • But now there are lots of questions which are badly tagged with 'bible'! I think it would be better for the tag to exist, even if every question with it is closed.

  • @curiousdannii New questions will not have the tag though. Further, most of the question that did have the tag are closed or I submitted a close vote. They'll be deleted eventually. I suppose I could have made a new tag "off-topic". No other tags seemed relevant.

  • most have positive votes so they won't be deleted. I was able to think of other tags for all but one.

  • @curiousdannii The community can still make delete votes on them. Takes 10K rep though. I'm not sure how often that really happens. You're a better tagger than I am ;)

Go to https://christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/verse-identification and systematically edit the tags out of the posts.

The tag exists as long as there is at least one question that has the tag. Tags not associated with any question are automatically destroyed at 03:00 UTC every day.

  • Oh, there's only eight. Okay. On my way to some fancy editing. Sorry active page, you're about to be bumped.

    @fredsbendtheGrinch - don't be afraid to vote to close any that are off-topic while you're editing, and point back to meta.christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/4199/… in the comments Commented Jan 2, 2015 at 19:58
  • Right, govner. .
