In Can we spellcheck our tags?, ArtOfCode brought up the fact that we had (note the past tense; Michael Kjörling took care of it) a tag when we really needed a tag. I also noticed that we had (again, past tense) a tag when we needed a tag.

Those are dealt with; chances are, others are not. Use an answer on this question to bring up a tag (one tag per answer, please!) you feel needs to be renamed, whether because of spelling or another reason.

The "of" is typically used in the phrase, and it makes the phrase grammatically correct. Also, pluralization would be nice.

    $\begingroup$ I believe the actual tag is weapon-mass-destruction (singular). The only question that uses the plural is the one you just asked. $\endgroup$ – DaaaahWhoosh Aug 5 '15 at 19:27
  • $\begingroup$ @DaaaahWhoosh Ack! My bad. I'll fix both. $\endgroup$ – HDE 226868 Aug 5 '15 at 19:27
  • $\begingroup$ Oh, well, the old one is fine now, but I think it should still be renamed to the plural, weapons-of-mass-destruction. $\endgroup$ – DaaaahWhoosh Aug 5 '15 at 19:30
  • $\begingroup$ @DaaaahWhoosh Pluralization is a different request. $\endgroup$ – HDE 226868 Aug 5 '15 at 19:31
  • $\begingroup$ But they'd already be changing it, two changes to the same tag just seems redundant. $\endgroup$ – DaaaahWhoosh Aug 5 '15 at 19:33
  • $\begingroup$ @DaaaahWhoosh Implemented. $\endgroup$ – HDE 226868 Aug 5 '15 at 19:34
  • $\begingroup$ I think this is a great idea, but unfortunately tag names are limited to 25 characters. weapons-of-mass-destruction is too long. $\endgroup$ – a CVn Sep 28 '15 at 8:25
  • $\begingroup$ mass-destruction-weapons would be grammatically correct and within the 25 character limit (24). The variants with "of" are either 27 or 26 characters. Of course, the "of" variants also include a cultural reference. $\endgroup$ – Brythan Sep 30 '15 at 3:17

EDITED, as requested:

I propose loses the "recommendations" part?

I don't have a problem with , but some people might not know this term; please consider changing it to "disease".

I see no purpose for the tag, and recommend removing it.

We have frequently-used and , so please consider removing the never-used .

    $\begingroup$ Can you make each suggestion its own answer? Thanks. $\endgroup$ – HDE 226868 Jun 3 '15 at 22:59
  • $\begingroup$ Sure! Cheers for that. $\endgroup$ – Mikey Jun 3 '15 at 23:09
  • $\begingroup$ I agree with all these suggestions. $\endgroup$ – DaaaahWhoosh Jun 4 '15 at 0:24

    $\begingroup$ Oh, I meant a separate post for each one, to make voting easier. :-) $\endgroup$ – HDE 226868 Jun 4 '15 at 2:16
  • $\begingroup$ chemoautotrophism was one I had to look up before answering this question...but probably questions about non-solar based life could be better served by a more known word. $\endgroup$ – Josiah Jun 5 '15 at 15:08
  • $\begingroup$ meteorology is a synonym of weather - as in if someone tries to use meteorology, it gets replaced with weather. No need to remove it $\endgroup$ – ArtOfCode Jun 5 '15 at 15:13
  • $\begingroup$ I think that removing recommendations from software-recommendations would be confusing and lead to people tagging virtual reality and such questions with software. The other tags have either become synonyms or been deleted. $\endgroup$ – Brythan Sep 27 '15 at 23:05

Perhaps this is just semantics, but "mining" encompasses the entire industry, not just the structures used in it.

Should we keep or ?

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Wikipedia says that they're different, but if we must lose one I vote we keep the former. $\endgroup$ – DaaaahWhoosh Oct 7 '15 at 19:27
