What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

Please retag questions from to and (possibly) make the former a tag-synonym of the latter. Making them synonyms is not without trouble, because there are two questions that use it with different meaning - one about "AIR Debug Launcher" and one about some "ATI ADL", versus 8 with the C++ ADL meaning. The tag appears to be too ambiguous.

There are only 10 questions... and you certainly have the rep to edit... –  Jon Seigel Nov 21 '10 at 16:09

@Jon I'm assuming mods have automated tools for that. So I won't try wasting my time going through them manually. I'm here for enjoying my time, not for doing repetitive tasks, sorry :) –  Johannes Schaub - litb Nov 21 '10 at 16:34

Okay done, but apparently I do not have enough power to edit the Wiki. Anyone?

I think I'd have preferred [omg-adl-sux], but [argument-dependent-lookup] will do. Thanks, Fred! –  James McNellis Nov 22 '10 at 1:54

Yes, I can edit it; what do we want it to say? –  James McNellis Nov 22 '10 at 20:56

I'm all for it, let's do that.

For one, spelling out abbreviations make it easier to understand them, plus, as you said, there's the problem of the same abbreviation referring to different things.
