There are 3 "design" tags:

The problem is that according to the tag wiki, it already covers and :

Questions relating to software used for graphic design, web design, computer-aided design, et cetera.

What about and ? Should we merge these?

Also, can we merge and synonymize & ?

  • I'm also against merging web-design and graphic-design into "design". Rather go through that and disambiguate.

  • Not all [cleanup] questions are about disk cleanup (e.g. registry, physically cleaning something, etc.). So we'd have to disambiguate that as well.

It appears that the tag is rife with requests for programs to fit a personal need, or to find a list of programs the user is asking.

These should instead be closed and/or deleted where you have the necessary votes to.

For those that should be left open, you'll just need to retag those properly to either

  • graphic-design
  • web-design
  • computer-architecture

And will die away normally. Don't just remove this tag as it'll be harder to spot which ones we should just close and delete.


I removed and created a tag wiki for , and in the meantime.
