What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

I'm thinking we should probably merge the and tags on SO. They mean the same thing as far as I'm aware, neither has a tag wiki, and they're both being used on the same posts to mean the same thing. What say you, meta?

I'd say burn them, they don't work well as standalone tags. –  Jeff Mercado Jul 28 '12 at 0:23

Not even close. round appears to be used much more frequently with rounding numbers. rounded, while used with rounding numbers, is also frequently used in regards to CSS and other display languages for rounded corners. They are ambiguous so they should be burned. –  animuson Jul 28 '12 at 0:30
    
@animuson do you think we should retag the ones who are about rounded corners with the already existent rounded-corners? –  ajax333221 Jul 28 '12 at 0:35
    
@animuson I know they're used to mean two different things, but both words can be used to mean each of those things (ie. round or rounded could mean rounding numbers, round or rounded could refer to CSS). So even though they can mean more than one thing, they still mean the same things. When referring to rounding numbers they seem to be pretty useful to me, though. Can you elaborate on why you think they should be burned? –  WendiKidd Jul 28 '12 at 1:04

They should be burned for exactly that reason. They're ambiguous, and we don't keep tags that have a bunch of different meanings. Tags are meant to categorize, and if it has multiple meanings, it doesn't categorize anything. –  animuson Jul 28 '12 at 1:41
    
@animuson Okay. Makes sense, thanks! :) –  WendiKidd Jul 28 '12 at 2:08
