I was just on the main site and saw a tag: dungeons-and-dragons-4e

It seems to me that it is practically identical to: dnd-4.0

I think the tags should be merged - with the vastly more popular dnd-4.0 taking over the newcomer. I've got edit privileges, but I don't want to abuse them. Is there some process I need to follow to change these?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes, basically. I wouldn't minded had dungeons-and-dragons-4e won, but I can deal with the extant ontology. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jan 23, 2011 at 4:52
  • \$\begingroup\$ Search engine referrals are up significantly since the retagging. \$\endgroup\$

There is currently controversy surrounding tags and synonyms, so retagging (particularly the dnd-related family) is probably not a good idea right now.

The issue has been resolved by synonyms. Thanks!
