I assume everything on the site is international. International for me means travelling abroad, but abroad is always different depending on the home country, so I have no idea what is the purpose of the tag.
Right now, this tag is applied on:
- What are the best things to see in Copenhagen, Denmark?
- What are some of the sights to see in Budapest, Hungary?
- Being safe in an unknown place [closed]
- Online resources/communities especially for travelling to remote islands
1,2,4 are NOT international, they are about one city or one island.
The third was closed.
Conclusion: this tag is already being misused.
Either we do something to make it more understandable, or we remove it.
Also, I am worried 50% of the questions might actually fit for the tag, is that a non-problem? Maybe it is a tip that we should create finer-grained tags?
The international-travel tag seems reasonable for questions dealing with traveling between nations; but not for specific destination questions (everywhere is international to someone).
In my opinion, such tag has very strange meaning. Yes, there're questions in group "international travel" and outside it. But since the tag is so broad, you will never be able to catch all the appropriate questions. And as well, I don't think that the tag helps anybody in searching for a question (which is the most important meaning of a tag -- to ease the search).
