This question was recently edited to include a tag called , while the original was removed. Another question had its replaced by a tag called . What exactly are the purpose of these tags, and do we really need them?


1 Answer 1


I suspect tbinary was a typo for ebinary, and I think they are referring to eclipsing binaries. I think both tags should be replaced with .

  • $\begingroup$ these both really look like typos by relatively inexperienced users. tbinary-star could be $T_{\text{binary star}}$ but even so that would not be a good tag. I think it's pretty safe to send them to the cornfield to join the rest of the erroneous tags. $\endgroup$
