I looked this up and it turns out that, back in 2014, there was a tag for and people wanted resources of a world to be separate from resources for building a world. So they turned it into two tags: and

All well and good.

But it seems someone re-created . We don't need this tag. It's a duplicate of . I tried to suggest it be a synonym but I don't have enough points in the tag.

The wiki for (total: 116 questions):

For questions that deal with the natural resources found in the environment.

Natural resources are naturally found in the environment. It encompass resources that were not transformed by humans or other intelligent species. Examples include energy resources like oil, coal, uranium; metals: gold, silver, copper, iron; building material: sand, stone, marble. Air and water can also be considered as natural resources.

The wiki for (total: 3 questions):

For questions about the natural resources of a world. Not for questions about resources useful to the author in making a world (use worldbuilding-resources instead).

Could a moderator please turn into a synonym for ? If we simply fix the tags and get rid of altogether, we'll end up with someone creating it again.

Done. Normally I'm not keen on substring aliases (typing "resources" causes the existing tags to pop up), but since this tag has already been recreated once after we fixed it, I went ahead and defined the synonym after merging.
