Can we [table] this tag, and use [tables] instead?

From the tag synonym page (emphasis mine): If you know of common, alternate spellings or phrasings for this tag, add them here so we can automatically correct them in the future. For example, suggest ...

Should [careers] be a synonym of [jobs]?

I agree that the tags for careers, careers-germany, careers-city-pages and careers-2(currently a synonym of careers) should all be made synonyms of jobs. Neither questions about Stack Overflow Jobs (...

Synonymize [merged-questions] and [merge-questions]?

From the Comments it looks like this should be an answer so that the community can decide whether or not it is a good idea. I think that it should be a Synonym. If we Burninate (delete) it, it could ...

Overlap? [deleted-accounts] vs. [deleted-users]

Apparently I have a high-enough score in the tag to propose a synonym, so I've done that. If you have a score of at least 5 in the tag you can vote on the suggestion. I think a merge would be better ...

Make [international] a synonym of [internationalization]

Initial-substring synonyms are at best pointless. If we only have internationalization, then somebody starting to type "internat" will see it as an auto-completion. If that's what the poster meant, ...

This tag [belongs-on] another site

I'd argue for retagging and removing it - since the tag on its own is a meta tag. There's no real value for it on its own. I've retagged the questions, though looking through them, migration wasn't ...

What's the difference between [retag-request] and [synonym-request]?

TL;DR: Retagging/merging changes the tag on each post, while synonyms are a long-lasting redirect. retag-request is for requests that a tag be merged (or manually retagged) in to another... synonym-...

Should [rss] and [feed] tags be merged?

Yes, it should. There is no use in keeping them both since they both cover the same topic, either the RSS feed or RSS feeds in chat (both tags are used for both topics). I proposed a synonym. Feel ...
