I propose that the tags below on the left be merged and possibly synonymized to those on the right. Because if there's one thing people love more than tags, it's tags on meta.1

1 What, that's just me? awkward

Done. There were only a few questions with each of these tags, and both seem to be used identically.

possibly. If these should not be synonyms, then the tag wiki excerpt for could use some clarification.

I'll let someone else handle this one, since I don't know enough about website design to even know what CSS means.

Done. These tags are clearly identical.

(And apparently both tags have only ever been used by one user. I get that incorrect but upvoted answers are a pet peeve of his, but it's a pity nobody else has ever seen fit to post to meta about this important site quality issue [unless they have but haven't used the tag].)

Done. The first of these only has a few questions and is clearly synonymous to the second.

: is one of the default tags that the cleanup script won't touch. No one uses it, but it might as well be a synonym of .

Nah. I'm not sure what is meant to be for, but if someone comes up with a distinct and sensible meaning for it, they're free to start asking questions with that tag. Let's not synonymise it before it's even been used.

Done (ish). I did this merge the other way round, since even though there are more questions tagged than , the latter seems like a more intuitive name for the tag: people ask questions about quotes in questions and answers here, not about famous quotations.

  • This comment mentions interesting-tags, but I still don’t know what its intended use was. I guess it doesn’t matter, since only one person has ever used that tag, and you removed it.

    @anaranjada Huh, I'd forgotten that. Guess I removed interesting-tags because it wasn't an interesting tag. Argh, this is getting too meta for me! Btw, watch out for the new meta question coming up ...

  • Wait, does “quote” as a noun mean something different from “quotation”?

  • @anaranjada They're kinda synonymous, but I'd say "quotation" sounds more high-brow than "quote". We can make quotations from Shakespeare or Byron, but only mention quotes from JK Rowling or George Lucas.

  • I just hit 2.5k and +5 score in tags, but it says interesting-tags doesn’t exist when I try to suggest it as a synonym of tags. The universe is conspiring against me.

  • @anaranjada Maybe because interesting-tags doesn't actually have any questions?

    @Randal'Thor HTML is the bare bones of a webpage, CSS is what is used to give it colour and shape and size. I suggest that 'css → design' is not synonymised, as it is possible for a question to be about the site's CSS, but not the site's design.
