The tag for the Star Trek expanded universe is currently . Since we can use longer tag names for quite a while now, should we rename that to and use the old tag as a synonym?

If so, would a mod please be so kind?

This has been discussed as part of a general proposal for [star-trek-*] tags, but no decision has been made as far as I can see. That's why I've narrowed my request down to just one tag.

Note that the proper name is Star Trek expanded universe instead of extended universe.

  • Makes sense to me. I can't remember exactly how synonyms work but is this not something we can do ourselves... i.e. create [star-trek-expanded-universe] and make eu a synonym of it. Would it not then auto switch them around?

  • @TheLethalCarrot in these cases, it's best if a mod does this since they can change it in one fell swoop.

  • @TheLethalCarrot Even if you get the 5 approvals for the synonym proposal (and noone really knows they can/should approve tag synonyms), you would still need a moderator to switch all the old questions over to the new tag (unless you want one of these dreaded frontpage messup sessions), since that doesn't happen automatically upon synonym approval.

  • @TARS Ah that's what I was wondering about, if it auto swapped them or not.

  • This is a direct dupe that’s been answered and implemented elsewhere

  • @TARS given there's no easy way of seeing the proposals, it's hard to know, or to find when you can/should approve them.

  • "no decision has been made" -> the top voted answer (+20/-5) literally states "How about using the full names as synonyms for the acronyms?"

  • @TheLethalCarrot which hasn't been implemented as far as I can see.

    @SQB Just because it hasn't been implemented doesn't mean that's not the way the community wants to go.

Make it so.

Rename the current tag to and make a synonym.
