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

So Jeff recently did some clean-up in the WPF tags and among other things mapped to ╬▒.

Now there is this current situation with two rather similar tags:

  • : 5,479 questions; wiki: "A general technique that binds two data/information sources together and maintains them in sync."
  • : 4,190 questions; wiki: "Binding provides a simple and consistent way for applications to present and interact with data."

I am personally not a great fan of as it sounds a bit vague and could probably mean different things depending on context, like dynamic binding for example. In general i would like to see one tag swallowing the other though, unless there are good arguments against that of course.


╬▒ - This makes my old synonym proposal superfluous; I cannot remove it myself though.
