I've been looking at some of the lesser used tags and proposing tag synonyms. I've found several in tags that I don't have five upvotes for yet, but that look like they might be good synonyms. If you have sufficient upvotes in any of the following tags, please consider proposing a synonym if you think it's a good fit.

  • Mods can just immediately approve theses synonyms if the apparent consensus is pro-synonym – Ben Brocka Apr 17 '13 at 19:20

I wouldn't agree on <- only because questions about tagged are going to be for touch devices and there is enough difference there to warrant it's own tag in my opinion.

Same with <- . In this case I would just retag questions that are IA (which I have done). Whether we need an tag at all I would say is up for debate.

If anything, <- might be more appropriate.

  • I noticed you just re-tagged three of the five architecture questions to information-architecture. Isn't it reasonable to assume based on that past tagging that future users might also enter architecture meaning information-architecture? Or should we also retag the two remaining architecture questions as physical and get rid of the architecture tag because of its inherent ambiguity? – Graham Herrli Apr 18 '13 at 16:03
  • My problem with Architecture and tap are that they're mostly covered by Physical and Touch-screen in practice. – Ben Brocka Apr 18 '13 at 16:07

    @Ben: Perhaps merging physical <- architecture and touch-screen <- tap would be best. – Charles Wesley Apr 18 '13 at 16:19
  • @3nafish: architecture has no summary so that doesn't help users know what it means. Because there are questions in there that are not IA, I don't think you can make the argument that all architecture tags are IA automatically. I think architecture as a tag should be merged, but with the remaining items, the merger should be with physical. – Charles Wesley Apr 18 '13 at 16:20
  • @CharlesWesley But there are also future taggings to take into account. If we list architecture as a synonym of physical, people writing architecture to mean information architecture would be mis-tagging their questions. Moving the two current posts to physical (and removing architecture as a tag) might prevent such errors, unless someone creates the tag again. – Graham Herrli Apr 18 '13 at 19:12
  • I am in favor of merging and getting rid of architecture entirely, so future tagging wouldn't be an issue. – Charles Wesley Apr 18 '13 at 19:25
  • Sounds good. I've retagged the two remaining architecture questions as just "physical." – Graham Herrli Apr 19 '13 at 14:18
