So I merged tags, and it created duplicate tags. I came to meta to write a bug report and saw this question: Can the Batch re-tag feature automatically remove duplicate tags?

That sounds like what I want, but the answer didn't really address the question. Why should I go merge and then have to go do a second step of removing duplicates? If I'm merging and and a question is tagged with both and , I want it to end up with only and not .

I think the system even knows this is going to happen based on what was displayed on the confirm-merge page.

  • How does Jeff's answer not address the problem? It sounds like there's another page that has the deduplicating functionality. – Jon Seigel Jan 11 '11 at 18:13

    @JonSeigel I'm asking that it happens automatically. Merging tags is likely to create duplicates. Why do I have to go to another page to de-duplicate? Why not have it happen automatically? – Alex B Jan 11 '11 at 18:34
  • @Jon Unless it's cleverly hidden, diamonds don't have access to such a utility anymore. – Grace Note Jan 11 '11 at 19:12

I fixed this issue a while back, should be fine now.
