There is no tag wiki on the "Ellipses" tag...and I can't figure out what it means exactly. There are questions with this tag that as far as I can tell don't have anything to do with the use of the ellipse, but...is somehow connected. (ie. an ellipse is used at some point in the question, or the question revolves around some sort of omission.) If anything I think there needs to be some clarification on this tag and when it should be used...

(PS I used them on purpose...I couldn't pass it up, but it's an honest question.)

  • Not only that there is no tag wiki for "ellipses", but there is no such tag.

    silvermaple: Putting sawa’s comment in a plain language :), you are misspelling the tag name “ellipsis” as “ellipses.” By the way, “ellipse” usually refers to a completely different thing. Commented Dec 30, 2011 at 1:57

Can someone explain the ellipses tag?

It is better if it is explained in a tag wiki excerpt, but in the meanwhile, see Wikipedia.

Update: Added a tag wiki.

  • Thank you, that makes so much more sense now! Commented Dec 30, 2011 at 3:03
