- Many old “what's your favorite X” questions. These are often tagged polls, and that's the intended meaning of the tag according to its wiki. Hopefully these questions are on their way to deletion, but in the meantime we can't use the tag for something else.
- Questions about gathering answers to multiple-choice questions from many people — making a poll web page in PHP+JS, that kind of stuff. These questions are spread between poll, polls, polling, survey and quite possible more.
- Questions about concurrency scenarios where a program is waiting for an event. These questions are spread between poll, polls, polling, survey and quite possible more, including the less-specific events.
- The occasional question about the Unix/POSIX
pollfunction, drowned in poll.
What would be a good tagging scheme for these topics? We could use polling for concurrency and survey for web polls, but I fear that survey isn't very discoverable. Or we could use poll for web polls and polling for concurrency, but such resembling names for completely different tags doesn't work well. Any better suggestions?
