Only manufacturer and company tags are problematic, specific products are not. There are two tags, intel-cpu and intel-graphics, that are okay for all CPU and graphics card products made by Intel Corporation. Nvidia is also kind of a special case. Nvidia's only products (or at least their most popular products, since I haven't heard of anything else) are ...

We could just ball up all the speed related tags into the performance class and be done with it. Which leads us to this: fast was removed from 23 questions slow was removed from 307 questions Both now map to performance.

My first two thoughts when reading this title were "What the heck does that mean?" and "Why would we ever need those two words?" Burninate!

I thought I might give an overview of what was done with logitech, as the list in the question doesn't do it any favours, and I hope it serves as an example of what we can do and get some feedback as to whether it was the right way to go: The tag logitech-mouse already existed, so retagging logitechmouse questions seemed a good place to start. Based on ...

AFAIK, PC originally meant the line of IBM Personal Computers, and then also the compatible devices. This transformed to computers running Microsoft Windows using an Intel CPU, i.e. "Wintel" computers. But today, AMD is a strong competitor to Intel, and Windows isn't the only OS, especially not on a site like Super User, where questions of all computer ...

I say we... Burninate IT!!! And then: Smash IT!!!! INTO OBLIVION!!!!

I can see nothing wrong with the proposal. Would merge+synonymize. dual-monitor updating post history, 247 rows affected updating posts, 204 rows affected updating PostTags associations, 159 rows affected removing/renaming old tag, 0 rows affected updating count for master tag, 1 rows affected tag remapping of [multiple-monitors] and [dual-monitor] ...

Yes, mono contains 39 questions, so it should be easy to just retag those about the Mono framework to mono-framework and leave mono for audio. If these are more than 10 questions, you shold probably consider not editing them all at once to avoid cluttering the front page.

Split the tag to: for various media: audio-filter, image-filter, video-filter ffmpeg-filter (make synonym of video-filter) email-filter internet-filter file-filter (can also be used for some questions tagged with search and file/folder) Remove the tag for other cases, since they don't appear to be significant enough to justify their own tags.

I'm willing to add the tag but first I wouldn't mind knowing whether your question is relating to interfacing Windows Phone with a computer or if it is solely to do with mobile phones. Per the help centre mobile phones are off topic it is not about: electronic devices, media players, cell phones or smart phones, except insofar as they interface ...

Good Practice When Writing a Question The tag wiki is accurate. Version-specific tags are for issues that don't apply to all versions, or questions about a specific version. In those cases, the version-specific tag is important information about the nature of the problem. If the problem is version-specific, adding the version-agnostic tag is just ...

I cleaned up the tag assignments, so all alpine questions are now about the email client and all alpine-linux questions have only that tag. I added clarification to the alpine wiki excerpt (pending review), but concur that the alpine tag should be renamed alpine-mail, consistent with how it was handled on the Unix & Linux site.

There are 5x as many tagged compact-disk as cd-rom, so I'm just going to merge cd-rom into compact-disk. I'll go through and manually retag the ones which mean cd-rom as in the device to add optical-drive.

Points 1 & 2 are very much preferred. Since each question will have to be looked at, there isn"t any automated way of doing this. I suggest taking the questions in batches and spacing out the edits to prevent edit flooding of front page

Questions referring to the Windows Installer packages (.msi files) should be tagged windows-installer. The tag msi should be merged (and synonymized) into windows-installer as company tags aren't very helpful and people will use the tag to refer to Windows Installer packages anyway.

Didn't we have a previous question on this? I'm for dropping versions completely & merge everything to Firefox.

Agreed, it is now burninated.

Make it a synonym of recursive.

We should disambiguate it and use the following tags: Use computer-building (x231) for everything related to building PCs on your own. In our case, these are only 9 questions (of which 2 are closed and probably to be deleted). – done. Doing so, also make a synonym system-building → computer-building. - done Keep build for everything related to software ...

status-completed The struck out tags below have been made tag synonyms and merged with firefox. firefox-3.6 x33 firefox-4 x129 firefox-5 x33 firefox-6 x15 firefox-7 x8 firefox-10 x4

I agree with removing these. There's only 12 questions with this tag, would anyone object to me just removing them from these questions? (Will also clean the questions too, of course)


7

This tag has been burned and blacklisted: Please help to clean up untagged

How about tagging the deployment questions simply as windows-deployment and letting wireless distribution keep wds since it seems to be the most common/popular? Windows Deployment Services is also a bit specific. That refers to the role installed on the server which responds to PXE boot requests and serves up the images. Other than that, it doesn't really ...

I'm very much in favor of this. plasma-tv sounds fine. For the KDE workspaces, I'd prefer kde-plasma-workspace or even just kde-plasma. It's done. I went with kde-plasma-workspace. plasma is now a synonym for plasma-tv.

As the tags have effectively been cleaned up and split by fixer1234 I have gone ahead and merged alpine into alpine-mail Merge Results updating post history, 29 rows affected (pipe delimited) updating posts, 26 rows affected (pipe delimited) removing/renaming old tag, 1 rows affected tag remapping of [alpine-mail] and [alpine] complete! remapping 0 ...

No. refresh-rate is good enough to cover the questions currently there. And there are only under 80 questions using it. Plus refresh-rate is not as intuitive as high-refresh-rate, and only adds to splitting it up for the sake of splitting it up.

updating post history, 19 rows affected updating posts, 18 rows affected updating PostTags associations, 14 rows affected removing/renaming old tag, 1 rows affected updating count for master tag, 1 rows affected tag remapping of [find-and-replace] and [search-and-replace] complete! remapping 0 synonyms Tag Synonym search-and-replace -> find-and-replace ...

Agreed, these 3 are all burninated.

Suggestion Split these up first in audio OR sound (the audio-volume tag is too specific) and logical-drive. Make volume a synonym of logical-drive. Reasoning You can't have a single question about volume, volume will always be interpreted as ambiguous even when you do keep the tag and write as much in the information of the tag as you want. In other ...

It's hard to say whether it was ever "meant" for one or the other; at this point it's a bit of a mess but they're mostly about the filetype. I'm going with xps for the file type, and retagged questions about the Dell laptops to dell-xps, which already has a lot more questions than xps does.
