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.

I think and should be merged. They have a similar meaning and the questions used by each tag are the same, as the tags are not always correctly used.

Why the downvotes? – Mooseman Jul 11 '13 at 17:55
Well, similar != exact. – Undo Jul 11 '13 at 18:44
On Meta, downvotes mean the users don't agree with you (unlike the main site where they often mean the question is poorly researched). – Johnny Bones Jul 11 '13 at 18:47
@Undo No it does not. However, the way they are used on the site, are exact. – Mooseman Jul 11 '13 at 20:22

There appears to be several jquery events not related to binding: http://www.w3schools.com/jquery/jquery_events.asp

Here's an example of a SO jquery question that doesn't have to do with binding: Does setting jQuery.data() trigger an event?

The events are only used to bind the events, whether you're using .on, .click/.mouseover/etc., etc. – Mooseman Jul 11 '13 at 14:03
If you have a question about an event, it's not always going to specifically be about BINDING the event. – Johnny Bones Jul 11 '13 at 14:06
Can you provide an example? I can see that custom events wouldn't fall under binding, but jquery-events is being used anyway, so there's no separation in questions. – Mooseman Jul 11 '13 at 14:09
If you edit your answer, I can remove the downvote. However, being that questions that, in your case, should only use jquery-event-binding are mostly using jquery-events, I still believe that the tags should be merged. – Mooseman Jul 11 '13 at 14:19
I don't think they have same meaning, but given how they seem to be used now merge makes sense - now there is no added value in them separate anyway, even if there should be some. – Mołot Jul 11 '13 at 14:27
