Should we delete api? It doesn't seem to add value, and on stackoverflow the guidance is "DO NOT USE: Tag with the library you mean, [api-design], or something else appropriate instead."
I looked at the api tag today, in a hope of CULLING THE HERD, but I had trouble finding targets!
There's several which are reasonable questions about the existence of a given API. For example, a python API, or a webhook API, etc. I'm not sure what a new user is supposed to label their question if not "API".
Perhaps that could be the use of the API tag? Or create some tag which would suffice?
After some thought, I think api-design might be a worthy replacement, since I could see a legitimate set of questions on the subject. api is otherwise a bad tag, and even the potential set of questions I mentioned previously are not really stack overflow style questions. But designing an api, I think, is a worthy enough question, and I believe I saw one or two like that.
I brought api use down to about 15 questions. I see there's a tag called external-api, which I feel is worth keeping. Or, at least, keeping it with the meaning of "Interacting outside of Ethereum with things such as Oraclize.it" Perhaps not?
It's done. No questions were lost, and there weren't any that were too hard to decide how to retag.
Apologies if I did it a little too fast. I realize I now occupy almost the entire front page. (Is this normal during tagicide?)
