Seems like these are quite generic. Many things are slow or fast - they provides no real useful information.

    Tags should be nouns, not adjectives or adverbs.

  • As long as we were advocating for nukage of [slow], I figured [fast] should probably be there as well.

  • Is 138 for slow too many to manually retag over a weekend or two ?

  • @Iain Doubtful; I'm pretty sure Programmers has retagged more in less time.

  • @Aarthi: The problem with retagging a bunch of questions like this is that it pushes new questions off the front page which is something we like to avoid if possible. A few at a time over a weekend or 2 is ideal.

  • @Iain Yeah, that's the biggest problem. Over a weekend would be best, in controlled batches by the hour. What I would do on DIY (when I would edit titles) would redo oldest questions first and newest questions last, that way the newest questions would come back up to the top of the front page when I was done. You may have to take on a similar tack.

  • @Aarthi: Erm, I don't think that approach would work when retagging 138/100k questions spread over 2.5 years - they would all just end up on top. The alternative is to ask the team which doesn't push anything past the front page but I'm not sure if 138 is large enough to ask them.

    @Iain Looks like that's the course you're going to have to take, sorry Iain.
