I think that badge-related tags should be consistently suffixed or not suffixed, but I'm wondering which way people think it should be.

For example, we have , , and , but also , , and .

Having "-badge" in the tag name is convenient because it allows the tag selector to suggest all the badges when you enter "badge," but that could also be accomplished via synonyms.

How would you accomplish that via synonyms? You mean that we would have both tags for each badge, with the "-badge" variant as a synonym of the master? That seems unnecessary. –  Cody Gray Aug 12 '11 at 4:06
@Cody I was assuming that having a synonym which included "-badge" would also be enough for the tag selector to be able to suggest them, so that either way would be viable. –  Brad Mace Aug 12 '11 at 4:14
@bemace, please don't leave the excerpt detail out of the wiki section on your tag edits. The wiki section should be complete. I've been having to edit a bunch of them. –  Lance Roberts Aug 12 '11 at 5:40
@bemace, ran out of votes couldn't do them all, will have to fix 'citizen-patrol' when I get home next week. –  Lance Roberts Aug 12 '11 at 5:43
@Lance - you mean the body of the tag wiki? I'll try to find something to put in them, though with so many tags having nothing I figured just getting the excerpt populated would be a big improvement since it's the most visible part –  Brad Mace Aug 12 '11 at 5:44
@bemace, I mean don't leave the essentials out of the body, just because they're in the excerpt. Otherwise, they're fine. –  Lance Roberts Aug 12 '11 at 5:48
@Lance - ok I get what you mean now; will do –  Brad Mace Aug 12 '11 at 5:54

We should do both, create and retag to the "-badge" tag, and make the non-badge tag a synonym for it.

But, I don't think we necessarily need to do this for every badge.
