# 'Rendering' tag

I feel that this tag is not needed. Whenever it has been used so far, it's also accompanied with the tag for the render engine. Such as . Shouldn't we just get rid of it? See for yourself:

• it can be useful.. say for discussing rendering techniques/theory etc.. May 23 '13 at 3:27
• @iKlsR good point. May 23 '13 at 3:30
• @iKlsR but I think that if a question has a rendering engine tag, that it shouldn't have the rendering tag. May 23 '13 at 3:34

We should keep the tag.

• I personally prefer this option, by the way. May 23 '13 at 3:30

We should keep the rendering tag.

Although many questions regarding rendering are specific to a particular engine, there are still a good number of questions that might arise independent of the rendering engine, or questions that ask for comparisons between the different engines. Also, there are a number of features of the rendering process that are general enough that even if the user is working with one engine, the answers might still be useful in a different engine (such as speed/optimization questions).

• Also, since tag nesting is not currently supported, if I'm looking for wide-range questions on rendering, I wouldn't want to go through all tags, having one is helpful

We should keep the , but remove it from every question that already has a rendering engine tag.

We should get rid of the tag.

• @iKlsR He wants rep. May 23 '13 at 3:34
• @iKlsR, I've seen this done quite often on several different other SE sites I'm a part of, mainly just to make it easy for the community to choose the option they like best. May 23 '13 at 3:35
• @Dan the Man, no, you can't get rep from the meta site. May 23 '13 at 3:35
• @PeterCassetta Ah ok. Didn't know. May 23 '13 at 3:36
