The following tags are proposed for removing:
responsive-layout fixed-layout fluid-layout
A note on "responsive": It seems that this is the no. 1 searched layout tag, followed by "fluid". Based on feedback and discussion, we believe most users are simply looking for a responsive theme. When a tag is always used by themes and by users, it becomes practically useless in distinguishing themes from one another.
The following tags should be removed:
The following tags should be added:
This is a proposal for complete overhaul of "subject" tags. The following is the list of subject tags with additions and removals:
blog e-commerce education entertainment food-and-drink holiday news photography portfolio
