I'm including Meta in Trilogy.
Is there a more accurate term? (Quadrilogy?)

Accurate in the sense that "octopodes" is the more accurate plural of "octopus", yes. That is, not in any sense that people actually use. –  ベレアー アダム Dec 9 '09 at 2:33
    
I meant accurate in describing the sites. (perhaps family) –  SLaks Dec 9 '09 at 2:34

Tetralogy - dilogy, trilogy, tetralogy, pentalogy, hexalogy, etc. –  Izzy Dec 9 '09 at 2:37

Your question now is worse than before. It's like you've only just started using SO. What's going on with the users of late? –  random Dec 9 '09 at 2:42

Adam - no idea personally, but did dig this out (From Cambridge Guide to English Usage): octopuses, octopi, octopodes. Currently, octopuses is the most common form in the US as well as the UK; octopodes is rare, and octopi is often objectionable. –  Izzy Dec 9 '09 at 2:52

Do not use apostrophes to indicate plural. Because apostrophe does not indicate plural. Apostrophe cannot indicate plural. Not even a greengrocer can use it to indicate plural. Ule çòrrùpt thè Èñglïsh læñgüägé größl¡. –  Andrew Grimm Dec 9 '09 at 7:09

@beggs - that is awesome. –  Andrew Grimm Dec 9 '09 at 10:40

I'm going to nominate the frantabulous explanation of tag usage.
