Unable to add the [classical-electrodynamics] tag
Resource reference for Induction due to Time Varying Magnetic Fields (TVMF) I asked this question 5 minutes before posting it here. I have tried to add the tag classical-electrodynamics but it just ...
Adding length-contraction tag won't work
I recently asked this question. Before posting, I added the tags special-relativity and length-contraction, but after posting, only the special-relativity tag remained. I tried multiple times to edit ...
Merge [group-representations] with [representation-theory] [duplicate]
This is the description of the group-representations tag: Use as a synonym to the representation-theory tag So we may want to merge them together already.
About synonymous tags
While asking asking a question I noticed that there are two similar tags weak-interaction and weak-interactions which leads to question for their necessity. Should any of these be deleted? If not why?
Tag cleanups on our meta
I just noticed that a lot of our tags here do not have any wikis/excerpts, and they seem like they're almost identical. Can someone please suggest how they're different and whether or not we should ...
Should the tags (mathjax) and (tex) on meta be synonyms?
As far as I can tell, both mathjax and tex are used here on meta for questions about usage of MathJax in posts on the main site. (AFAICT MathJax is the correct terminology, but unsurprisingly many ...
Tag with no tag wiki description which should be merged
I just discovered there is a floating (no tag wiki description) elementary-particles tag, which description is included in the particle-physics tag. Should not these be merged?
We should reassign [tag:non-linear-dynamics] to [tag:complex-systems]
I propose we make the tag non-linear-dynamics a synonym of complex-systems. Currently, non-linear-dynamics is set as a synonym of non-linear-systems, but I'd like to argue that the most common usage ...
Tag for free energy
I recently proposed the tag free-energy, and wrote a usage guidance for it; however, it has been almost immediately set as a synonym of energy. I am wondering, however, whether we should have a ...
Why does the quantum-computing tag redirect to quantum-computer instead of the opposite direction?
I find this a confusing way to lay out our tag space. Lots of questions (say, this one as a recent example) are about quantum computing as a field, or about some specific aspect of a given quantum ...
A tag for nuclear magnetic resonance
When editing a question today, I realized that, for whatever reason, we don't really have a tag for Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, and really, we should. Unfortunately, however, the obvious choice, ...
Should we rename the teleportation tag to quantum-teleportation?
I'm pretty sure there's a formal mechanism to suggest tag synonyms but I can't find it and no one ever votes there anyway, so: should we rename teleportation to quantum-teleportation and make the ...
Heat is both a tag, and a synonym of thermodynamics
Why is this? Should we do something about it?
Why can a question have both a tag and its synonym simultaneously?
This is probably answered somewhere, so apologies for my weak search-fu... Why can a question have two tags that are synonyms? Shouldn't the synonym instead appear as its "parent" tag? For instance ...
Should tags centripetal-force and centrifugal-force be linked?
The tags centripetal-force and centrifugal-force are currently separate tags. Should they be linked?
Merge the "planet" tag
While editing this question, I noticed that we have a tag for planet as well as one for planets. A slightly deeper than superficial look indicates that planet is apparently a synonym of planets--it ...
The tag wiki for resource recommendations contradicts existing tag synonyms
The tag wiki for reference-request contains the following sentences: Contrast this with the reference-request tag, which is for questions that ask for a specific resource, instead of any resource ...
Possible bad tag synonym
So a week or so ago, I made the frw-universe tag; made a tag-wiki for it too. Recently, a certain someone (not relevant who) made it a synonym of cosmology. For the record, it is currently the only ...
What's with the [covariance] tag?
This question just made me look at the tag covariance, and I didn't like what I saw. The tag is a mismatched collection of questions about Lorentz covariance of theories in relativity, covariance of ...
Please vote on tag synonyms.
If you see this page, there are many "pending" tag synonyms. I' have noticed that very few people bother voting on tag synonyms. This post is like a request for people to vote on tag synonyms. ...
Tag merging: "Star: and "Stars"
It seems that star and stars are two separate tags and there's not good reason for them to be so, especially when the latter is ...
Redundant tags III [duplicate]
After Redundant tags I and Redundant tags II, Redundant tags III is about tags about specific objects, meaningless to tag a question with . graphene air water earthquake nebulae ...
Redundant tags I [duplicate]
There are a lot of tags which are too oddly specific and not really about a specific idea in physics, e.g. temperature coulomb-branch pressure speed acceleration capacitance angular-...
Tag cleanup - pluralization
As I was casually going through the list of tags, I noticed several whose pluralization stood out as... off. It seems to me that for non-unique things (so I'm excluding sun, earth, etc.) that are not ...
That tensor from GR - what do we call it?
You know the one I mean, Tμν.1 Is it the stress-energy tensor, or the energy-momentum tensor? This is for the purposes of tags, where having both is redundant. This was brought up in chat, and there ...
gauss-law or gausss-law tag?
Apparently, it's Gauss's law, not (the) Gauss Law. I'm relying on Wikipedia here (and elsewhere), which sticks adamantly to the former. Please correct me in a comment if I'm wrong. I think that to be ...
schrodinger or schroedinger tags: please standardize
What applies to Gödel,1 may also apply to two Schrödinger tags: schrodinger-equation and non-linear-schrodinger. The third one, schroedingers-cat, being "right" already. So, whatever you may think of ...
How can we suggest synonyms to tags?
I have seen that tags have synonyms of it under it's description. How can I suggest a tag synonym?
Are there too many and/or specific tags?
Best with an example: there is a tag in the Physics Stack called "wavefunction". Is there any one who actually works on "wavefunctions"? Questions related to wavefunctions are questions about the ...
tag:classical-electrodynamics and tag:electromagnetism [duplicate]
Possible Duplicate: Tag synonyms for voting We currently have three tags (and many others): electromagnetism classical-electrodynamics quantum-electrodynamics In my opinion, classical-...
What are the meanings of "books" and "reference-request"?
It's been (slightly) bugging me for a while that we have two tags for questions about reading material, books and reference-request. I've never been quite clear about what the difference is, or should ...
Can we make a new tag of renewable-energy, and make alternative-energy a secondary synonym to it?
I appreciate that "alternative energy" is common US usage, compared to the UK say, where "renewable energy" is more common; and that the predominant language of the SE sites is US English. But I'd ...
Tag synonyms for voting
Post here tag synonym proposals for voting. For example: what tags should by synonyms of "quantum-mechanics"? See also this meta post. This post can also be used to suggest minor changes to a tag, ...
