Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This is a request to fix and then merge one tag for NSFetchedResultsController.


  1. Correct the spelling of x 805 to [nsfetchedresultscontroller].
  2. Merge x 88 into the newly corrected tag from step 1.

Why not make it a tag synonym of the correctly spelled one? – Makoto Feb 6 '13 at 18:47

This is currently practically impossible, as far as I know. The maximum tag length is 25 characters. That is the whole reason behind the "misspelling" of .

So the options are to either allow longer tags, or to simply choose the most common one and retag the other questions to that.

I was not aware of the maximum length until you pointed it out. Can the tag with 88 posts be merged in? – Bryan Luby Feb 6 '13 at 18:57
Yes, 25 is the maximum length in the tags table. – ben is uǝq backwards Feb 6 '13 at 18:58
@BryanLuby I'm sure that's possible. But given the relatively low number of questions with that tag, perhaps a manual effort and overall cleanup might not be a bad idea either? – Bart Feb 6 '13 at 19:13
@Bart I don't have retagging privileges yet. Plus I don't want to flood the review queue with 88 edits and swamp the front page. – Bryan Luby Feb 6 '13 at 19:36
