I have created >several tags without sufficient documentation. As far as I know there's no easy way for me to get a list of tags by creator (a mod here may have told me that, I can't remember where or when) but a list of tags for which a question that I've asked is the first use would be just fine for me to get to work on this.

Is there a way to script this? I've seen some kind of scripting being mentioned here from time to time, though I've never used it. Now I can't even remember what it's called. It's been around a while.

I have squirreled away the following two links which seem to suggest there's another way to do this without "going deep" into developerland and using a python API. Would this (below) be an easier way than scripting?



If someone could post the text of an actual script or query that does this, that would be super!


Here is a query for you

I am terrible at writing those things, so this is a bunch of stuff I copy pasted from other queries. Surprisingly it works.

Input your userID to get a list of what tags you created (yours is 12102)

  • $\begingroup$ WOW! Eighty Tags? OK. Thank you very much for your help, that worked great. This will keep me busy for a while. :) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I'm thinking of simplifying this script, but I'm actually clueless. I don't know what language it's written in nor where one could find the documentation. Any thoughts? $\endgroup$
