It was brought to our attention in The Clubhouse regarding tags that are already covered by existing/related tags.
In this example, penalty-card has no usage guidance and was only used once. In reference to tagging this question, officiating was suggested. I agreed and added that penalty-card would be covered under officiating. That brought upon the topic of tag synonyms and tag removal.
Considering penalty-card is only used once, I suggested removal of the tag (which is slated for automatic tag removal in its current state) and adding officiating. However, this specificity (penalty card vs fouls vs flags vs penalty box vs disqualifications, etc) may be necessary.
What do we do with newly created tags that are already covered by existing/related tags? I believe this can be applied more generally than a case-by-case basis and along with the attention brought forth in The Clubhouse, I thought this question was appropriate to address.
