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've submitted a suggestion to make [interview] and [job-interview] synonyms of [interview-questions]:

http://stackoverflow.com/tags/interview-questions/synonyms

I'm not sure if this is the right thing to do, but [interview] and [job-interview] are mostly filled with interview questions.

Tag counts:

  • interview: 75 questions
  • job-interview: 311 questions
  • interview-questions: 910 questions

There's also:

  • code-in-interview: 8 questions

Many of these questions are tagged by more than one of the above. I believe we should do some type of grouping is necessary. Suggestions?

Follow-up question: Do programming/puzzle interview questions still fit best on Stack Overflow, or would they be better moved to Programmers? I don't really have a strong opinion either way, but just thought I'd ask. – Bill the Lizard Dec 25 '10 at 22:13
    
@Bill Many of them involve code. – marcog Dec 25 '10 at 22:15
    
That's good enough for me. – Bill the Lizard Dec 26 '10 at 3:03

I think [interview-questions] is the right tag. Normally I'd be against "question" being anywhere in a tag since it seems redundant on a Q&A site, but I think this is a special case. Since programming/puzzle interview questions are sort of a special breed, and we seriously don't want any other kinds of general questions about interviews on Stack Overflow, it probably is best to make more general tags a synonym.

Could we get some votes on the synonyms? – marcog Dec 26 '10 at 15:11
    
@marcog: I was waiting on others to weigh in, but since the question and answer got nothing but upvotes with no dissenting opinions I went ahead and approved them. – Bill the Lizard Dec 27 '10 at 2:34
