The tag wiki for currently says:

tfs Stands for Team Foundation Server , where tfs services refer to a server for Team Foundation, where you can view the services that Visual Studio Team Foundation Server uses and the Web Service application pools that Team Foundation Server installs. Team Foundation Server includes many services that run on the application tier.

Both of the questions which currently have this tag are instead about the new Team Foundation Service (

I see no value in this tag if it is truly intended to have the meaning currently described in the wiki. I would prefer it to refer to the new hosted service.

Any suggestions?

That tag wiki makes me oh so confused. – animuson Jan 9 '13 at 20:52
I recently cleaned up team-foundation-service and threw together a rough wiki for it. I don't think tfs-service is an appropriate tag, as it doesn't actually stand for what it represents (team foundation server service? Have some pizza pie while you're at it). The tfs tag kind of sucks, on a side note. Not sure what the best solution to all this is :/ – Won't Jan 9 '13 at 21:57

Well, that tag sucks. But so does the product naming, since is a different (but confusingly similar) product.

I've merged and synonymized this tag with the tag that Will pointed out.

Thanks, but I still have a concern about whether people who are thinking in terms of "tfs" will find a "team*" tag. We'll see. – John Saunders Jan 10 '13 at 0:04
Yeah, me too. It's yet another unfortunate naming choice. – Shog9 Jan 10 '13 at 0:07
