Why not just make a regular old synonym? And why prefer [dreamweaver] as the master tag over [adobe-dreamweaver]? –  Cody Gray Aug 26 '11 at 6:06
    
@Cody: I'm not sure entirely how the making synonyms works; it may well do all that's required. I've only ever requested burnination, not creation of a synonym. I was suggesting [dreamweaver] as the main one purely because it's got lots more already tagged as it. The other way probably makes more sense. –  Chris Morgan Aug 26 '11 at 7:03

Personally, I would prefer the other way around:

->

in order to facilitate searching using a virtual hierarchy like adobe*

+1: you're right. I was going on the facts that (a) there are 499 of one and only 11 of the other, (b) [dreamweaver]'s tag wiki is much better. But with a synonym and tag wiki copy those wouldn't be a problem anyway. What about the other [dreamweaver-*] tags, then? Rename or synonymise them? –  Chris Morgan Aug 26 '11 at 7:05
    
I'd be cool with renaming them -- I see only two using dreamweaver-, but that might be worth a secondary question. I'm not sure if the standard operating procedure will evolve to tags-with-topics-sub-topics-and-sub-sub-topics.... –  M. Tibbits Aug 26 '11 at 7:12
