In April 2014 Disney re-branded the Star Wars Expanded Universe as "Legends". In light of this, should we replace star-wars-eu with star-wars-legends? This has been mentioned before (e.g. here) in the context of adding star-wars-legends but not in the context of replacing the existing star-wars-eu.
There are currently 11 questions tagged with star-wars-eu, and in general the tag was used appropriately for those questions. Quite a few more questions could use star-wars-eu/star-wars-legends but there is little need to add the tag to existing questions (especially before the release of Episode VII). But it seems to me that new questions may wish to specify canon vs. Legends, especially for events after Episode VI. This will become more likely after the release of Episode VII, but already there are some questions which are looking specifically for answers from Legends or contain only Legends material. For example:
I propose creating star-wars-legends and setting star-wars-eu as its synonym. Is this desirable? (And is it even possible to mark an existing tag as a synonym of another one?) This would use the correct brand name for non-canon Star Wars material (which is more likely to be used by younger users) without removing the Expanded Universe name that will more likely be recognized and used by older users.
Or should we just burninate star-wars-eu?
