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.

These are my suggestions:

The overall trend seems to have been to synonymise everything into . I don't really see the need for one for each language, as the other tags are meant to provide that information. So I would also synonymise and merge:

, , , , and the database related ones into .

Then as is already a synonym of I would put the new into as well.

I'm unsure about , and . They could be useful separately.

Based on Robert Harvey's comments these need tag wiki's rather than synonymising to ensure they're not misused:

I capitalised jQuery correctly @jadarnel27... should have given you a clue :-). – ben is uǝq backwards Jan 25 '13 at 14:51
QueryPerformanceCounter is a Windows function. – Robert Harvey Jan 25 '13 at 15:29
PerformanceCounter is a .NET class in the System.Diagnostics namespace. – Robert Harvey Jan 25 '13 at 15:37
Fair enough @Robert; I'm definitely not an expert. I've updated the question. – ben is uǝq backwards Jan 25 '13 at 15:43
Performance Monitor is a Windows tool. – Robert Harvey Jan 25 '13 at 15:50
I feel like performance shouldn't exist. It's too ambiguous. I feel like we should have: performance-testing, performance-optimization, and performance-counters. database-performance has no merit. Instead one could use sql performance-optimization – Ṣhmiddty Aug 8 '13 at 15:15
