In light of an upcoming topic challenge using the tag I wondered if this tag would benefit from being renamed to . Calendar might be a more common word, but it rather arbitrarily excludes some topics that would be covered by a timekeeping tag1.

I'd suggest renaming to , since there seems to be no point in having two tags coexist when one is included by the other but the extra ground isn't massive. Perhaps should be made a synonym of though.

1: such as a hypothetical "How long would this society's seconds be?" question

    $\begingroup$ "calendar" is a much more common word, and there is no common ground in terms of substring matches, so a synonym seems called for if we do go this route. $\endgroup$ – user Feb 15 '16 at 12:57
  • $\begingroup$ FWIW, you seem to be confused as to whether to use the hyphen or not. Which do you prefer? :-) $\endgroup$ – user Feb 15 '16 at 12:59
  • $\begingroup$ If we do rename the tag, I would really like to have a synonym, as most people would tend to add calendar naturally. $\endgroup$ – clem steredenn Feb 15 '16 at 12:59
  • $\begingroup$ @MichaelKjörling whoops, I started by using a hyphen but changed my mind while writing it, seems like I didn't remove the hyphen everywhere. $\endgroup$ – overactor Feb 15 '16 at 13:02

    $\begingroup$ @bilbo_pingouin Vote me, and I'll give you the synonym! ;-) $\endgroup$ – user Feb 15 '16 at 13:06
  • $\begingroup$ @MichaelKjörling Is that how we go now? :D If I vote for myself, I might be doing it myself ;-) $\endgroup$ – clem steredenn Feb 15 '16 at 13:19
  • $\begingroup$ @bilbo_pingouin On a more serious note, I kind of doubt that we have enough time to chisel out a clear community consensus before tomorrow evening, and this is one of those things that are much quicker and easier with diamond powers, so a diamond moderator will probably be involved if we choose to do this renaming and synonymization. $\endgroup$ – user Feb 15 '16 at 13:31
  • $\begingroup$ @MichaelKjörling, true. At least the new team will have a chance to start off with something light :-) $\endgroup$ – clem steredenn Feb 15 '16 at 13:42

I agree. Time-keeping is more general, and IMO it would also be more useful than calendar, since this one is quite specific.

I agree. In general, is better because it applies to far more situations than . For example, take a look at this question. or ? I, for one, think this question and many others like it are related to time-keeping, rather than calendars, and time-keeping envelops the calendar concept anyway.

Disagree, because language:

Naturally, I would use for questions how to track time during a given day.

And would be used for questions on how to tell what season is
