So as far as I know the untagged tag is automatically added to migrated questions as they have no tags. If this tag is left on a question I could be confusing.

When I was searching the tag I found a question that is tagged with it, link: How can I learn cursive handwriting?

The question:


It was migrated so it was given the untagged tag the closed as off topic. I tried to remove it a sit could be confusing but I couldn’t:

cant’t remove it

So I was wondering what I should do or what could be done. Could it be deleted or removed by a moderator?

  • To do some of the things Nathan said in his answer, you can link the question in site's main chat so it'd get some attention. Even moderators occasionally visit there. In this case it won't be necessary as you've gone the extra mile with a meta post.

All questions need to have at least one tag; edits can never leave a question with zero tags. is automatically created when necessary when a system action would otherwise leave zero tags, then automatically destroyed again when there are no remaining questions with it.

There are a few ways to handle questions:

  • If it's a lousy question, vote to close and then to delete the question, if you have enough rep to do so
  • If it is, again, a lousy question, trigger the roomba to get the question deleted. For this particular case, as it's old and closed, downvoting its score to 0 is enough for the next daily roomba run to wipe it out.
  • If it's a decent question, edit it to put a different, relevant tag in.

There's no need to do anything special with itself; it's just an auto-generated signpost to find questions that would otherwise fall through the cracks.
