have a way to delete unused/unwanted tags easily
It would be great to be able to delete unused/unwanted tags easily to help streamline and prevent the usage of the wrong tag or having a class be defined improperly.

I can't believe that this issue hasn't been resolved since 2015! This should be an easy task, yet there's still no way to delete unwanted tags? Come On!

It really is unnecessarily difficult to remove tags from the tag list. Too easy to add, too time consuming to remove. I agree with Gail, there should be a controlled list, and the facility to change a tag in all events in which it appears

Boy, am I sorry I saw Gail's comment! I've been wanting to get rid of a tag but didn't realize I could do it by deleting every instance.
So I got into it before realizing that there were about 70 instances of it! I'm taking a break about halfway through to support this again.
Thank goodness for repeating events or there would have been twice that many.
OK, back to the grind.

Our club has many active event committees (over 30). Each event committee has its own event tag. This controls which calendar and which event page the events show on. Every 6 months, we have a few committees change names (which also changes the tag being used) as well as a few committees stop operating. We would like an easy way to change and delete tags on the site. Currently it creates a lot of manually work to go through the numerous past events to delete the tags we'd like to remove.
Ideally we would like:
1.) an option to have tags come from a controlled list (rather than simply typing in new tags into the event). We would like the option for tags to be edited (added, changed or removed) by certain admin privileges.
2.) Would like an option to easily delete a tag (if you have the admin privileges) without having to delete from all historical events.
It seems like the only way to do this now is to manually remove the tag from each event separately. It's possible but unwieldy. It would be nice to be able to delete a tag globally, or change occurrences of one tag to something else. Maybe even add a tag to all selected events.
