What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

There's and there's . Both seem to be about the UI controls (at least according to the tag wiki).

While trying to correctly tag this question about labels in Java I found out that there seems to be no tag about labels in source code.

  • So which of those tags should stay around?
  • Which of those should be a synonym?
  • What's the correct tag to use for questions about labels in source code?

The class is Label, but I thought preference was to pluralize tags when possible... – Raven Dreamer Dec 18 '12 at 14:51
I'll be honest, I don't know that either tag is a legitimate tag. Does it refer to a class, a label on an HTML form, programmable label printers? There's not one, universal definition across all technologies (like say string). – casperOne Dec 18 '12 at 15:06
@JollyOldSaintNicholas: I don't disagree, but I'm careful with asking for burnintation these days. – Joachim Sauer Dec 18 '12 at 15:08
@JoachimSauer I would say don't worry about it at this point. I think it's known that we want community participation on this before something is nuked from orbit. And I think that message got across. – casperOne Dec 18 '12 at 15:09
