On inspection it turned out that only one question had that misspelled tag. I therefor submitted an edit so the tag was no longer used on any question. Once the edit was reviewed and approved there were zero questions with the misspelled tag. After 03:00 UTC the system runs a cleanup batch to remove so called "zombie" tags. The timing of all actions was ...

This tag has been removed and made intrinsic (same as a blacklist, but won't block inbound migrations) - it's now in the same class as user-interface, which should give you a clue as to why it wasn't already blacklisted. 10 questions had no other tags - please retag them appropriately.

Given that this whole site is about user experience, the user-experience tag is redundant. It's a needless wart. Let's prevent its use.

It's gone now, but it'll take some time to disappear. Like a windows timer job... Edited 19 hours later Now it's permanently deleted :-)

I see no reason to keep them separate. I went and made them synonyms with users as the master tag (noun tags are generally made plural).

The term 'design' is simply too broad of a term for it to be a tag. Specific tags may make sense such as: graphic-design design-thinking ui-design But 'design' by itself just has no context so could really apply to most anything on this site.

The merge have been performed, and the 3 questions now have the correct spelled tag. https://ux.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/accesibility Thanks for letting us know!

There are some natural laws "physics" (more precisely, dynamics) with crowdsourced sites, and one of these is the inevitable buildup of a long tail of cruft. If you look at anything from the vote distribution to the distribution of high scores on the site you'll see that same pareto trend. Tags are subject to that same dynamic. There are a few tags which ...

Tags is what it is since it's a folksonomy in the first place. That means that they should be built from the users and not by authorities, which in our case means moderators or SE-employees. They are a bewildered forest of signs without any control (if they are folksonomy tags only). But our tags are in a loose way governed by privileged users and ...

True! Good call! It's now merged! Thank you

No apparent objections, went and added the synonym.

i agree with you. in fact, it's worse that being merely redundant on the site...it provides a seemingly-sanctioned way for users to be sloppy with tagging ("oh, i can just use experience"). if there's resolution here i'm happy to retag the questions...there aren't too many of them.

Kill. The "design" tag seems to be more noise than signal. It doesn't get used very often (299 tags ever). And when it does get used, there's often a "[specifier]-design" tag used, too. After reviewing the list questions tagged "design", I can't see a meaningful pattern emerging. Contrast that with the questions tagged "user research", which is clearly a ...

I think they're distinct enough tags not to require a merging / synonyming (if that's a word) For example, some questions tagged color that wouldn't make sense to be color-scheme are: How to interpret wcag2.0 guidelines on contrast for buttons and icons Correction in color model Intuitive colour pickers for non-expert users? Really, I think color-scheme ...

I've applied the tag wiki to the correct style-guide and have re-tagged the relevant questions. The style-gude tag will expire naturally overnight I believe, provided nobody re-uses it for other questions.

16 of the 21 questions tagged with google-materials-design were also tagged with material-design. I've removed the google-materials-design tag from these 16. The material-design tag appears to be the main tag. It has 128 questions and a tag wiki (compared with google-materials-design which now has only 5 questions and no tag wiki). I think it would make ...

I agree with this tag merge. A user likely isn't going to spend any time to figure out the nuanced distinction between the actual item produced (wireframe) and the process of creating the item (wireframing) If someone said "I have a question about wireframes," and then proceeded to ask you about your process for creating them, you probably wouldn't ...

I agree with this tag merge. A user likely isn't going to spend any time to figure out the nuanced distinction between the actual item produced (prototype) and the process of creating the item (prototyping) If someone said "I have a question about prototypes," and then proceeded to ask you about your process for creating them, you probably wouldn't ...

The tag badges (and all other badges) are network wide and can’t be changed on a single site. And I think this is fair, because you don’t have to remember badge award differences between sites (as many users are members of more than one site). When it comes to score, UX.SE are one of the best sites when it comes to answer percentage. In relation to other ...

Personally I think the user-testing tag is dead wrong. We can’t and shouldn’t test users. This is up to those with the competence in health care like doctors and nurses. Users are what they are, and we don’t test users. However, we want users to test applications, devices and solutions. We study users’ response to the stimuli we give them. We monitor ...

I've rolled back the previous excerpt that states: PLEASE THINK CAREFULLY IF YOU WANT TO USE THIS TAG! REQUESTS FOR TOOL RECOMMENDATIONS ARE OFF-TOPIC FOR STACK EXCHANGE SITES. Hardware or Software tools used by UX professionals to do their work. Also more generally software used by users to shape or modify something they are creating. Thank you for ...

While I agree that "experience" as a tag is problematic, I'd argue that there are occasions when we want to discuss the emotional aspects of a user interface. For example, we prototyped a design and then user tested it .. although we had a usability 100% success rate, it was apparent from comments that users were left anxious at the end. So, since "...

Skimming through the first 50 web questions, most (all?) of them appear to be about web design. (One is about interpreting web research to inform the web design. Keeping web research separate is the only reason I can think of to separate website-design from other web tags.) There's a fairly high degree of overlap. Of 135 total web questions, 29 are also ...

I recently asked a question regarding what I consider "modal dialogs". Is there any definitive research on modal/overlay forms? Specifically, dismissing behaviors I didn't get a good answer because it seems people have different notions of what a modal dialog box is. You can see from my language, I labored on what to call it. When I think of modal ...
