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

I would like to propose renaming to .


  1. Everyone in the community have agreed. (see hopefully in the comments in some hours)
  2. It is stated on the website as elasticsearch
  3. It is stated on wikipedia as ElasticSearch
  4. I can't create a new 'elasticsearch' tag (an error will appear). This would be sufficient for me and I could manually move the existing questions to it.

DOWN WITH THE HYPHEN! – Yannis Jun 6 '12 at 8:44
Hm? There's no downvotes there... Also voting is different on Meta. – Yannis Jun 6 '12 at 8:45
@YannisRizos: Uhh, that was me misclicking on mobile. Back to laptop now. – Manishearth Jun 6 '12 at 8:46
there actually was a downvote :) some seconds ago. not enough karma to actually see if enough up votes or oppinion changed – Karussell Jun 6 '12 at 8:46
@Karussell: Yeah, that was me. I misclicked. – Manishearth Jun 6 '12 at 8:54
Great and long overdue idea! – imotov Jun 6 '12 at 9:56
A thousand times yes! – Drew R. Jun 6 '12 at 15:11
Definitely a good idea. – thnetos Jun 6 '12 at 15:12
Does anyone know how to finally do this? Attract some users with high enough karma or how? – Karussell Jun 6 '12 at 15:37
As the creator of elasticsearch, it would do a great service to the elasticsearch community. – kimchy Jun 6 '12 at 19:32
The hyphenated version is both ugly and incorrect, voting for the change! – karmi Jun 7 '12 at 8:16
Totally agree with this one! – Michael Koper Jun 8 '12 at 10:02
Fairly obvious-and-trivial. – mt3 Jun 17 '12 at 7:11
