Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

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


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
