Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Please make two of these synonyms of the third (here on Meta) update the tag wikis to clarify what each of the tags is for:


They aren't all intended to be the same, apparently. bemace clarified this below. However, I've seen the tags used on questions as though they were the same. I'll go find them and edit the tags accordingly.

I've added wiki excerpts to and that will hopefully clarify the distinction.

Ok, thanks. I didn't realize there was a distinction between the two. I'll go offer some edit suggestions so everything's tagged correctly. – Rob Hruska Aug 10 '11 at 16:16
Is the widget displayed in this question [tag-suggestions], then? – Rob Hruska Aug 10 '11 at 16:36

Any other reason than the fact that you created it? – balpha Aug 9 '11 at 19:37
@balpha, I created it because I liked it, and I already have a taxonimist badge. I think it says what the functionality is the best, since it's all about selecting tags. My second choice would be tag-dropdown. We definitely need the name to reflect that it's about a UI component. Tag-suggestions is a much broader topic than just the new selector. – Lance Roberts Aug 9 '11 at 19:39

is not the same as the others. The suggested tags don't necessarily have anything to do with the selector/dropdown.
