Someone created 17 days ago. It currently has 10 questions in the tag. was created a year ago and has 234 questions. These tags apply to precisely the same thing. Should the new one be merged into the old one (or at least made a synonm)?

I don't have the requirements to suggest or vote for a synonym, but it seems like a good thing to clear up.

I've merged into and I also updated the tag wiki on to contain a summary and a description based on the summary from and the full wiki from .


They should be merged, and made synonyms.

It seems more preferable to keep as main site, and use as synonym. In either way, the tags should be merged.

  • Definitely preferable to keep the tag that actually describes what it's about. I have no idea what [eav] is, but I know what an [entity-attribute-value] is.
