Should we rename to ? I don't think the distinction is worth having two separate tags.

To clarify: the purpose of this question is so that if anyone has objections, they will be made public. If there are no objections in a few days, we'll go ahead and make the synonym.

Or vote on the synonym proposal Qmechanic made, if you are able to do so.

  • $\begingroup$ I suggested that synonym five months ago, but it only has one upvote so far. $\endgroup$ – Qmechanic Jun 17 '14 at 7:02

    $\begingroup$ It's unfortunate that our tag synonym proposals get barely any attention. Hopefully this will put the matter to rest. $\endgroup$ – David Z Jun 17 '14 at 7:33
  • $\begingroup$ Fine by me. Do we express approval by upvoting this question, or is there some other mechanism? $\endgroup$ – John Rennie Jun 17 '14 at 7:36
  • $\begingroup$ Upvote the tag synonym Qmechanic linked to, and if enough people do that the whole matter goes away ;-) Failing that, I suppose the clearest way would be for someone to post an answer showing agreement, but yes, I'll take upvotes on the question as a sign of agreement. Basically my plan was to just let this sit here for a few days and if nobody objects, we'd go ahead and make the synonym. $\endgroup$ – David Z Jun 17 '14 at 7:43

  • $\begingroup$ By the way, why is there a distinction at all. To me, "harmonic" means quadratic potential. What does "simple" even add? $\endgroup$ – user10851 Jun 17 '14 at 19:38
