Claiming unused tags
« on: 09 Feb 2019, 18:01:31 »
Is there a process for claiming an OFPEC tag that hasn't been in use for a long time?  Our community uses a specific abbreviation for all of our projects and that abbreviation has been registered as an OFPEC tag.  It was registered 15 years ago to a user that doesn't exist anymore for a project that was never completed.

In short, no such process exists.

Back in the day (surprisingly only 7 years ago though) it was decided that a TAG could never be re-assigned.
Arguments from both sides of the coin were equally good though, so it's a bit of a gray area I suppose.
I could personally maybe bend the rule a bit when it's really clear the TAG is a ghost.  :hmmm:
