I've noticed some alternate tags that should be cleaned up. The first one listed for each of these should be correct (unless I don't know of some other naming convention).



windows xp

I've also noticed an xbox360 tag - Should this be changed to xbox-360?


Actually, it looks like these tags are an issue on all sites (Server Fault & Stack Overflow)

  • Shoot, should I have just flagged a moderator on some relevant posts instead? I just noticed that on some other requests.

  • No, this is the right place, at least for now.

I would stick with "windows" as the most broad tag and then "windows-[version]" as the specific ones ("windows-xp", "windows-vista", etc.)

If you come across things you think need retagged, you can flag and one of us will take a look at it, you can also email me directly (my address is listed on my SU profile page).

I think if we take care of these early, we won't need to worry about a big and potentially messy tag merge.

This is currently taken care of on Super User.

  • Yeah, I didn't mention the plain windows tag, as it makes sense to keep :) - I'll email you about any future retags I notice.

  • Care to "own" SU if I clean up SO?
