The description says it's for:

Questions dealing with writing criticism, and with receiving criticism from others.

The wiki adds:

Questions to do with:
- How to write criticism (e.g. movie reviews)
- How to interpret and respond to criticism of one's work
- How to obtain constructive criticism
...and any other questions pertaining to writing criticism and receiving it for others.

Please distinguish from the critique tag, which is for requesting critiques for particular pieces of work.

The "critique" tag no longer exists. However, some critique questions are now being tagged .

Is the wiki correct? If so, some questions should be detagged. If not, it should be updated.

IMO we should do what the tag wiki says and remove that tag from questions that ask for critiques as opposed to asking how to do critiques.

(After discussions here and in chat, this has been implemented.)

    Agreed. I point you at the meta question: Is critique a meta-tag? The tag was subsequently burninated. – Neil Fein Mar 6 '14 at 18:33
  • I've updated the tag wiki for now. If there's general agreement, the mods can do a mass edit to remove the tag from critique questions. – Neil Fein Mar 6 '14 at 18:35

    @NeilFein good edit. Thanks. – Monica Cellio Mar 6 '14 at 19:12
  • I'd further suggest we change the name of the criticism tag to something that's clearer, but I can't think of anything. Something that means "the process of giving or receiving criticism". – Neil Fein Mar 6 '14 at 21:14

    Thanks for raising this @MonicaCellio. I am afraid I have been guilty of wrongly tagging a couple (or maybe one) of questions with the criticism tag too. Shall we start correcting? – Pravesh Parekh Mar 6 '14 at 21:31

    @PraveshParekh community maintenance of a tag set is hard; you may not have been the first, and if not you were just following suit. The purpose of this question is to clarify our position, after which we'll act. I think we're going to end up removing it from those questions, but we may as well do those as one batch once we decide, instead of tackling them one at a time. – Monica Cellio Mar 6 '14 at 21:34
  • @NeilFein: Umm...critical-analysis (might overlap with critique), critical-writing (not really), critical-appraisal (don't think so), critical-process (has a different meaning), critical-method (nay), criticism-method (blah)...nope. No good. Anything on your mind? – Pravesh Parekh Mar 6 '14 at 21:40
