What of these should we keep? Both?

That mainly goes for Tags

I know you go cycling with your bicycle, but what should the tags have? both?

1 Answer 1


Tags should be synonymized and merged ->

  • Do you think [biking] would go in there as well? Biking could refer to mountain biking or dirt biking. [Biking] itself would be a bad tag because of how ambiguous it would be.

  • @corsiKa Yes. dirt biking/motor biking should tagged dirt-biking or motor-biking

  • So what about the [biking] tag - banned, and make it clear to be more specific?

  • @corsiKa merging it into cycling will effectively ban it (all questions tagged biking will be tagged cycling.

  • that's true - but biking is commonly used to mean dirt biking and mountain biking, for which cycling doesn't apply.
