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

We have:

[win32]:   1068
[winapi]:  2736

I recommend everything tagged [win32] be retagged as [winapi].

This was done at least once before on August 22, 2009, and looks like it's time to do it again.

A number of related tags were merged back into [winapi] back in February at Jon Seigel's request.

Looking at this answer from the first link provided, I went and checked out [win64]. It's a mishmash of topics, with related tags including [windows], [winapi], [x64], [64bit], and [win32]. I think those should be hand-sorted. (Note: there is currently no [win16] tag.)

As for the [win32] --> [winapi] merge, I think it's fine. There wasn't any commentary in my question, but there was strong consensus the previous time around when the merge actually happened.

Though we do have at least one good win16 question, amusingly -…. – dsolimano Apr 19 '10 at 13:23
@dsolimano: Yeah. There are a few of those tagged with [16bit] (which I think is fine, although it is mixed in with questions about 16-bit imaging). – Jon Seigel Apr 19 '10 at 14:34
