# Tag synonym - {android-,}edittext

Editing a post that had the tag , I noticed that there was also an tag. Looking at the wikis, the descriptions are identical except that has a link to an example, so they are clearly the same. Even though has more questions tagged (but [oddly] fewer followers [2 vs 3, not particularly significant]). I suggest moving the example to the wiki and making that the parent, because it's more specific.

Ok, there has been some debate about which way to go. Regardless of direction, these two are being used synonymously, so we need to make them synonyms one way or the other, unless we want to reserve edittext for the Microsoft control and retag all the android ones to android-edittext. We obviously don't want to do that so let's figure out which way to go and make a windows-edittext for the windows control.

• edittext is specific enough as edittext is an android class and nothing else. android-edittext is a synonym of edittext. – Ben Brocka Nov 29 '11 at 22:57
• This has received a downvote. I didn't place it, but I believe that the downvote is due to the synonym/merge direction and not the need for a merge in one direction or the other. – Kevin Vermeer Nov 29 '11 at 23:53

• I would delete my answer as it's no longer useful, but the comments about the Windows EDITTEXT control and unicorns getting angry at Microsoft are too valuable to take down with it. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Nov 30 '11 at 1:44
