I was on the wrong site and created 3 bad tags.
How do delete tags? .NET WPF C#

Question is too short. That is about it - how to delete tags you created by accident?


1 Answer 1


Tags without any associated questions are deleted by the system once a day, so the simplest solution is to remove the tag(s) and wait for the system to do its thing.

I have fat-fingered a couple of unwanted new tags myself, so I can testify to the effectiveness of this method.

I see you have done this already, so and should be gone soon. The tag will stay around because you didn't create it (it is applied to 168 questions here as of now, for some reason).

In the Stack Exchange FAQ:

How can we get rid of misspelled and unused (or “zombie”) tags?

and the duplicate Andriy M mentioned: I accidentally created a tag. How do I delete it?
