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

There are 383 questions tagged and (compared to 606 questions tagged and ), where is wrongly used, as in Drupal "Views" is the name of a module (for which there is already ), and it is not used to refer to a database view (to which is referring).

Those questions should be retagged to use , which is the correct tag to use. There are 127 followers for , and only 12 for ; those 127 followers are users who can answer to Drupal questions, while between the 12 followers there are few users who can answer to Drupal questions (if not none).
I have already changed the excerpt for , which now suggests to use for questions about the Views module.

This is probably a task for Stack Exchange developers, as only the questions using both and should be retagged. I have already added to questions that are about the Drupal module; still, manually retagging those questions would require time, if we want to avoid that 383 are suddenly bumped in the front page. I think that I have read on Meta Stack Overflow that, in such cases, it should be asked to do the retagging by altering the database.

Although the tag wiki says so, the views tag doesn't really seem to be restricted to DB views. I see at least as many questions referring to the V in MVC etc. – balpha Nov 16 '11 at 9:20

It seems like there should be at least 3 tags:

Or, it might make it easier to select the right tag if they were:

The schema I see used is the one used with drupal-views. I think it helps who wants to filter out the unwanted tags, who could use, e.g., "drupal-*" as ignored tags. – kiamlaluno Nov 20 '11 at 15:02
