Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

I've gone through all the questions (currently 30) with the tags and and they're all(*) concerned with the the Motorola 68000 processor.

I would have flagged it or a added a synonym (I don't have enough answers), but it seems like the way to go is to suggest it here, so I'd like to suggest combining these tags. Even though 68000 seems to be more popular (and has a small wiki) I'd suggest mc68000 (or even better m(c)68k) as the name, as it is more specific (I'd consider these roughly analogous to 386, i386 and x86, but I'm open to suggestions).

(*) A few posts (like this), I'm not 100% certain about, but they all have discussion about the issue in the comments.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "This question pertains only to a specific site in the Stack Exchange Network. Questions on Meta Stack Exchange should pertain to our network or software that drives it as a whole, within the guidelines defined in the help center. You should ask this question on the meta site where your concern originated." – Emrakul, mhlester, Martijn Pieters, Steven V, Shadow Wizard
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Might be worth combining with too then - it's the same processor core with microcontroller features.

I disagree; the Coldfire processors are still in production and the questions with this tag are about implementation problems. The MC68000 is obsolete, but frequently used for teaching assembly language and most of this tag's questions are about homework. – Kevin Vermeer Nov 1 '11 at 22:13
I understand the objection, and will bow to popular opinion, but it's still the same instruction set. There are currently 13 questions tagged coldfire on the main site, so it probably makes sense to give low-volume tags a slightly wider audience – Phil Lello Nov 3 '11 at 6:20
