Recently while tagging, I notice that there is a tag and a tag. How are they different?

  • krismath - not a bug. Synonyms are a discussion point - they may not be different. I'll have a look through and if similar enough I can merge them.

  • @DrMayhem Sorry for mistagging. I am pretty new to the meta part of StackExchange.

  • Sounds like a definite synonym!

  • No worries krismath. High rep users and mods can always retag :-)

  • Chris - agreed. I had a quick look through questions in these tags. I'll merge.

  • Done - I'm also looking at performance-practice

  • @DrMayhem: Hmmm...I'd say performance-practice should be scrapped, and the 7 questions retagged either [performance] or/and [practice]. How's performance-practice specifically different to other types of practice?!

    Yeah - that's along the lines of what I'm thinking. I'll try and get to it this evening.

  • practice is a real bad tag given how broad it is. Most questions are covered by technique or other more specific tags. But there are questions like "Where should I practice?" that I can't see an obvious tag to apply to other than practice.

  • @DrMayhem Did performance-practice get killed? That's a distinct concept as far as I'm concerned. See also

  • Of the tiny handful of questions tagged performance-practice, only one would have met that category, but its other tags work fine. None of the other 5 (I think it was 5) needed anything other than performance

  • It would be nice to do a site wide tag clean up before we graduate.
