This is a request to turn off the automatic removal of tags that only apply to a single question, preventing the situation where questions end up with just a meta tag against them.
I have noticed that over here on Movies and TV that there are a fair few questions that only have a meta tag like for example these:
- What's with the alien and the video game?
- Why is the big year record not accurate?
- Who is the murderer in the beginning of Tucker & Dale vs Evil?
Looking at the revision history for these questions, we can see a mysterious edit which claims to have edited tags but in fact has done nothing. There exists a setting on all Stack Exchange sites which is responsible for expiring tags that only have a single question on them, which in the case of the above questions (and many others) is resulting in leaving questions with a single tag not related to the Movie or TV show the question is about.
Disabling this setting will mean that we'd have to clean up more tags, but I think the benefits will outweigh the harm by useless tags that won't get deleted.
