It seems that you're the user who created the (ft.factorization-theory) tag. It seemed reasonable to let you know that there is a post on meta concerning this tag. — Martin Sleziak 1 min ago
Since some users reading this might not know the terminology top-level tag, I will add these two links: Why are MO tags formatted as they are? and Frequently asked questions about tagging on MathOverflow. I have also pinged the tag-creator to make them aware of the discussion on meta. — Martin Sleziak 59 secs ago

A: Help cleanup tags!

YCorI propose to make qcqp (10 questions) a synonym of quadratic-programming (34 questions). quadratic-programming has no usage guidance. qcqp has: A quadratically constrained quadratic program (QCQP) is an optimization problem in which both the objective function and the constraints are quadratic...

@FrançoisG.Dorais Much belatedly, how about "quadratically-constrained-qp"? — Rodrigo de Azevedo Mar 28 at 9:33
Or "quadradrically-constrained-quad-prog"? — YCor Mar 28 at 10:03

Q: Decomposing a subset of $\mathbf Z$ into a sumset of irreducibles

Salvo TringaliWe say that a subset $A$ of $\mathbf Z$ is irreducible if $|A| \ge 2$ and there do not exist $X, Y \subseteq \mathbf Z$ with $|X|, |Y| \ge 2$ such that $A = X + Y$. If $X \subseteq \mathbf Z$, we denote by $\mathsf L(X)$ the set of all $k \in \mathbf N^+$ such that $X = A_1 + \cdots +A_k$ for s...

Class of lattices that excludes M_3? I would be tempted to edit M_3 to $M_3$ - but perhaps people are purposely avoiding MathJax, so that the question remains in the HNQ list. The question is also missing a top-level tag.

Q: Class of lattices that excludes M_3?

Gershom BIt is well known that a lattice is distributive iff it excludes as a sublattice $N_5$ (the pentagon) and $M_3$ (three unordered elements with a top and bottom). Further, a lattice that only excludes $N_5$ is modular, and consequently a lattice excluding $N_5$ but including $M_3$ is modular but no...

This should be confirmed by mods, but I do not think that the tag was burninate. Moderators can merge tags - in this case was merged into . AFAIK, help from Stack Exchange staff is needed for burnination. (It cannot be done by mods alone.)

@YCor BTW you're missing the end bracked in "[tag:descriptive-theory" in your post.

@MartinSleziak thanks. By the way, was burninated? made synonym? what's the right word?

@YCor As I explained before, I think that the tag was most likely merged.
> A tag, when it's burninated, is removed from all questions that carry this tag. The entire history of the tag is wiped out, with no trace of the tag existing in revision histories. This will just remove the tag from the system, but it can easily be re-created by users with the privilege to.
I will stress that burninantion removes the tag from all posts without bumping any posts (unlike manual retaggin). AFAIK, a tag can be burninated only by Stack Exchange staff (not by mods).
Things which can be done by mods is merging tags - which essentially means that all occurrences of tag1 are replaced by tag2. (Without any bumping - possibly with bumping one question where the tag "tag2" was created.)
> Mods can merge two tags, which removes one of them and replaces all occurrences by the other one. So this works basically as renaming the tag. Some details about merging are explained in this answer.
> For moderators: the actual way to rename a tag is to merge it into a nonexistent tag. Go to the tag page (/questions/tagged/[existing-tag-name]), click the “merge” button, enter the new tag name, and confirm until done.
Anyway, I think I am just repeating things which I have already mentioned here before..

I will just remind that mods can merge tags without any bumping. So if at some point we will reach the state that all question tagged are questions where fits, mods can change the tags without bumping any questions.
Apr 27 at 10:27, by Martin Sleziak
Alternatively a tag could be burninated, which removes all instances of the tag without any bumping. (This cannot be done by mods. However, MO mods sometimes used merging into as a replacement.)

Using seems a bit unusual to me - and one obvious disadvantage it that this placeholder tag remains on the question. Meta Stack Exchange: Burnination vs. merging into a specific tag.

@MartinSleziak As far as I can tell, the question has already left the HNQ list - so I have edited the title.

I suppose that many of the posts with link to freeimagehosting.net contain that images. Although some of the posts with such links have already been cleaned up.
The link in the post no longer works. And I do not see the picture in the Wayback Machine, either. Perhaps you still have the picture available somewhere? — Martin Sleziak 6 mins ago
