What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

The current tags describe two aspects of a question rather than one. For example, routing is an ASP.NET feature that happens to be heavily used in ASP.NET MVC but is not restricted to it. It seems more natural that a question tagged asp.net-mvc-routing be tagged with the two existing tags asp.net-mvc and routing rather than having a specific tag for an aspect of asp.net-mvc. Likewise for asp.net-mvc-controllers and asp.net-mvc-areas, though in those two cases the connection is stronger to ASP.NET MVC. In essence, I suppose I'm expressing a preference for multiple, single aspect tags over fewer, more specific tags. Many, if not most, of the questions with these tags already are tagged with asp.net-mvc.

I somewhat agree. asp.net-mvc-routing seems like an error to me. There's no such feature.

But routing isn't the right tag, either. asp-net-routing would be closer to the mark

However, I'm unable to propose the more correct asp.net-routing as a tag synonym since the erroneous asp.net-mvc-routing has many more uses.
