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

I realize this is a very minor issue, but it's bugging me -- tags on SO that contain two or more words are separated with dashes (that I've seen). Can somebody rename to iron-router? That is the name of the actual iron-router package it's a tag for.

EDIT: I emailed the developer, who replied:

It should be iron-router (I think that's easier to see). I should just update the README with Iron Router instead of IronRouter.

"ironrouter" is surprisingly hard to get good search results for. You're not talking about this project, are you? Because according to the README file, "IronRouter" is one word. And since our tags are not case-sensitive, that would appear as ironrouter. – Cody Gray Aug 26 '13 at 9:27
I am talking about that project! The README does specify "IronRouter" as the project name, but it also shows that "iron-router" is the package name, and also the name you'd use to add the package to your project, etc. Therefor, it seems to me it makes more sense to use the package name. – BenjaminRH Aug 26 '13 at 9:38
You can check it out in the official package repo: – BenjaminRH Aug 26 '13 at 9:39
So if an abbreviation were used for the package name (e.g. "ir"), should we use that as the name of the tag? I don't think so. I think the official project name is a better choice. That's the name that the developer picked free of any external considerations (e.g. length, no Unicode support, etc.). – Cody Gray Aug 26 '13 at 9:50
You definitely have a point, I'm not arguing you're wrong. But this is how most people in the community would ask about it. If you look over most posts in the places the community goes to ask for help (e.g. google groups, SO, IRC, etc.) you'll mostly find that people ask about iron-router package, rather than IronRouter. – BenjaminRH Aug 26 '13 at 10:47
Actually, I'll go ask the developer. – BenjaminRH Aug 26 '13 at 11:08
@CodyGray I've just heard back from the developer, who voted for iron-router – BenjaminRH Aug 26 '13 at 16:49
+1 for emailing the developer. :-) – Cody Gray Aug 27 '13 at 7:47
