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

It seems to me that (~300 questions) and (~60 questions) refer to the same thing. I kind of like as being more descriptive, but seems to be winning. Shall we synonym/merge, and if so in which direction?

I'd say synonimze and merge with windows-event-log as the master. Keeps people from needing to change their habits, while introducing new users to the better tag. – Matthew Read Jan 11 '12 at 20:11
Looks like we've been overruled :-). Well, we're still much better off than where we started. – dsolimano Jan 12 '12 at 16:28
The merge I chose avoids the problem of a specific technology (Windows) co-opting a general term (event log). We currently have this problem with activity, a general term with multiple meanings that was co-opted for android. – Robert Harvey Jan 12 '12 at 21:14
A good point, though it seems all of the event-log questions are windows related. Perhaps we should have mass-retagged to windows-event-log and left event-log empty? Or is the event-log tag useful across different platforms? – dsolimano Jan 12 '12 at 22:17
