How to handle tags with multiple meanings?

On Stack Overflow, I keep finding posts tagged that should be tagged . They are two very different products by different authors for different purposes.

Should I just retag these manually when they come up? Or is there a way for the system to suggest the tag based on the question content?

There aren't that many, so it's not that big of a deal if the answer is to handle it manually. I'm just not sure about the guidelines around this.

Perhaps the tag should be disallowed and replaced with something more suitable for that project, such as or ?

I've already retaged the questions that were mistagged. I'd just like to avoid future cases of this.

So how to request a blacklist for the [raven] tag?

  • This is an ambiguity problem, not a synonym problem. raven != ravendb. – Charles Jan 4 '13 at 21:56
  • @Charles - yes, exactly. Also, was thinking [sentry-raven] may also be a synonym for that product since raven is an add-on for sentry. But I'd like it if [raven] would then be not allowed so the user has to choose the appropriate tag. – Matt Johnson-Pint Jan 4 '13 at 21:58

    @AustinHenley He is saying that there are questions incorrectly tagged raven when they should be tagged ravendb because they are two different product.s This is the opposite of synonyms. – Josh Mein Jan 4 '13 at 22:02
