  • just because it's accepted doesn't mean it's right Commented Feb 14, 2012 at 4:30
  • My question was about implementing the accepted answer of a different question. I don't think that really classifies it as a dupe

  • You did not indicate that in any way here Commented Feb 14, 2012 at 4:36
  • It is asking to retag all the questions that have windows-8 to windows-8-preview... How is that not about implementation?

  • You said "implement the accepted answer", well, maybe if you had indicated something to do with that, it might not have looked as such. In its current state, this question is a duplicate Commented Feb 14, 2012 at 4:39
  • Edited. That what you meant?

tag remapping of [windows-8-preview] and [windows-8] complete!
remapping 0 synonyms
34 favorite and ignored tags remapped!
Tag Synonym windows-8 -> windows-8-preview was approved!

Done. The synonym will be dropped later once Windows 8 is released.

  • Will we use a separate beta tag once that is released? We should remap the synonym then probably.

  • @DanielBeck No, I'd already mapped windows-8-beta to windows-8-preview while doing this

Well, the consensus was edit them as we see them, and thats pretty much what ought to be done.
