I suggest to make a synonym for .

Both tags are about the NSFetchedResultsController class in the Apple "Core Data" framework, and it is obvious that both tag names are different attempts to cope with the limit of 25 characters.

has currently 780 questions and has a tag wiki, so this should be the "master".

has 83 questions and no wiki, so this should be the synonym.

(I proposed this already using the "suggest tag synonym" form, but the request is pending for 5 month now. Probably few people review the "pending request".)

Is there any way of making these tags more "human-reader"-friendly? –  Shai Jan 20 '13 at 10:19

@Shai: This is probably a question for the administrators. As far as I can see it, the tag names use only lower case letters and a few special characters. - In this particular case, NSFetchedResultsController has 26 characters and there seems no sensible way of shortening it, so I suggested to make the more established one the "master". –  Martin R Jan 20 '13 at 10:28
    
@Shai: I probably misunderstood your question, so this is another try to respond to that: There are already many tags for Objective-C classes in Apple's Cocoa frameworks, using the class name (converted to lowercase) as tag name: nsarray, nsdictionary, uiviewcontroller, etc. I would therefore probably vote against using a different "human-reader friendly" tag, if it does not fit into this scheme. But perhaps somebody has a good suggestion. –  Martin R Jan 20 '13 at 16:47
