Can a synonym be made for computers and can computer and pc be merged into a single tag?
I may have made it unnecessarily complex but I ended up suggesting computers as a synonym of computer and then computer as a synonym of pc rather than making the first two synonyms of the third.
Unfortunately I can't "unsuggest" a synonym.
Hmm, thinking about it again, we might want [pc] in [computer] instead of [computer] in [pc] as not all computers are personal. I can't vote on the proposals. I really would have a benefit of having 10k reputation, but I'm halfway... :-( Jan 29, 2011 at 21:55
@Tom true. Perhaps a mod can sort it out?– ChrisFJan 29, 2011 at 21:58
I've removed the [computers] to [computer] mapping and merged the rest. Jan 30, 2011 at 20:05
Isn't computer a meta-tag?
And I imagine pc is perilously close to being one as well...
For the same reasons as discussed over in Can the hardware and software tags be obliterated?
Surely every question on SU should be related to computers (as per the FAQ), and therefore every question should use this tag... looks very meta to me.
computers has been obliterated as per DMA57361's answer, it clearly was a meta tag.
We still have computer and pc, I think computer can be obliterated but we need to pay special attention to the questions in pc as they are personal and thus that tag could be used in the same way server is used...
explain has been obliterated in the same way, and mind-mapping-software has also been retagged to mind-mapping and an optional software-rec.
