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

The tag wiki for says:

Canvas is an drawing element introduced to web development with HTML5, but also exists in Android and WPF development. Use the more specific tags where possible.

I've seen many questions with both the tags and which do not have the more specific tag.

A quick search showed me that the same problem exists around the tag.

Is it possible to do a kind of tag merge where a question that is tagged both html5 and canvas has the canvas tag replaced with the html5-canvas tag, and the same for android (unless the question is tagged both android and html5).

If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Not currently, no. Only developers, and maybe community managers, have this capability.

Bad tags have a high correlation to poor post quality. So when the community asks for a tag to be burned, the answer is always "fix the tags one at a time, and fix the posts that need fixing while you're fixing the tags."

So it is possible? – Undo Jun 25 '13 at 1:46
Well, yes, if you want to bother one of the developers. But, as I said, the Community Team prefers that we solve it one question at a time. – Robert Harvey Jun 25 '13 at 2:51
True. You must go easy on the superpings. – Undo Jun 25 '13 at 2:54
