I was looking to make a tag synonym for over on SO, in the context of turning it into (there is also a for the CPU ones). There are a bunch of questions that are tagged , which should probably be tagged because involving a registration for a website or the like.

Should I manually retag the ones involving CPU registers to or and then put the synonym in place for ?

No, wait for a mod to come along. Sidenote: in my eyes the register tag with the meaning if registration is useless. – Time Traveling Bobby Jul 19 '11 at 11:54
I couldn't agree with you more about the meaning of it, but it seems as though that camp has at least a majority of the questions under that tag. – jonsca Jul 19 '11 at 11:57
Need to fix my glasses on making those tag symbols, thanks guys. – jonsca Jul 19 '11 at 14:44

There probably was some data to be mined from register (most would have been retagged "user-registration" it seems), but this is still certainly an improvement. – HostileFork Sep 2 '11 at 18:46
