Splitting vague tags is time-consuming, causes lots of random bumping, and is only worth it if all or nearly all of the relevant posts are sorted out and the new distinction is valuable. So, I'd be cautious. If you are still keen, I suggest tackling just the clearest case and reporting back. That seems to be the preview case: of 78 tagged questions, 20 ...

The synonym has been approved.

In the autocompletion list, it says ”compiling (78)” and “compilation (s)”. This means that compiling is used on 78 questions and compilation is a synonym. On the tags page both are listed and compilation redirects to compiling. I believe there is no other place on TeX.SX where compilation is visible. Tag synonyms are useful for at least two reasons: They ...

You are right, the ducks tag is quite pointless outside of Meta. Since ducks are sort of an inside joke on TeX.SX, I have retagged all the ducks questions (following the same reasoning as in A proposal to include a duck in our background image).

Agreed and implemented: see overleaf :-)

This is too long for a comment, but it's meta anyway. :) I remember when I saw this question in our main site: LaTeX template for the journal "Blood" Almost instinctively, and having myself enough reputation, I decided to lighten up the mood and did the following: I giggled for almost 3 minutes (hee hee vampires), but then later I realized it ...

As I said in a comment: Having 43 tagged by one of them and 0 tagged by the other one, I would wait for a while and see what happens. No need to be pre-cautious too much about tagging in this case, it doesn't seem to have so much traffic. If there arose some confusion about those two tags, we can review the solution and then it can get easily sorted out, ...

Having just occupied myself with a bunch of tagging activities, I have to say that this function really is hidden most obscurely. My opinion on your question is that we should do both: propose a synonym, and then notify Meta. It appears that the only way to actually vote on a proposed synonym is by following several links and then searching for pending ...

This still hasn’t been worked out and I (doncherry) was about to ask the same question as well. Status quo as of 2014-09-20: books: {books} is for questions which deal with books about TeX, LaTeX and other topics of this site. […] tutorials: Should be used when asking about obtaining tutorials, how-tos, introductory books etc. For questions about ...

I think you should create a new tag scrlayer. Although scrlayer will replace scrpage2, scrlayer has a complete difference syntax and mechanism so that you can't compare the two packages. The package scrpage2 will be declared as obsolete however it will be part of the KOMA-bundle to be backward compatible. For me the packages scrlayer and scrpage2 are ...

I agree link and hyperlink should be merged. the tag wiki for link says explicitly it is about hyperlinks, and I don't think (this century) people do (or should) refer to non hyperlinked cross references as "links". I don't think the suggested distinction that hyperlink should only be used for external references is valid. An in-document link is a ...
