Revenant is a tool which uses a list from Tagdor and the Stack Exchange API to detect burninated tags that have re-appeared on questions.


  1. git clone
  2. Install dependencies bundle install
  3. Configure settings.yml to look like:
chatx_username: SE account username
chatx_password: SE account password
api_key: API Key from


This runs as 1-off check to find all tags that have risen from burnination. It will post the output in room 167908 on It looks for tags only on Stack Overflow, not on any other Stack Exchange sites.

I recommend setting up a cron job or some sort of regularly timed running of this script to ensure no tags rise from burnination.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
