After a consensus was reached in this post, the tag was burninated. Since that time, I've seen it recreated a few times by different users (those that didn't know about this tag's history). It was removed and eventually burninated again each time, without any responses from those users.

However, users coming with off-topic design questions can still create this tag without seeing the feedback that's shown when trying to create a blacklisted tag. I think that this tag should finally be blacklisted so that users can become aware that questions solely about design don't belong here. Sure, it's not the only problematic tag we've had, but architecture and pseuodcode questions seem to come up rarely.

Be aware that this is not similar to the tag. It is used with questions with complete code that follow some design pattern, which is on-topic. On the other hand, questions with the tag usually have incomplete code, as the focus is on the current approached design, not on the code itself.

I've blacklisted . Users who try to use the tag will get this warning:

Please don't use design as a tag, it isn't useful for identifying questions. Rather, please make certain that you've included any language tags that apply, so folks following them will be likely to see your question.
