I think we need to make a synonym for .

Plural seems the better way to go, and we don't need these two separate tags.

I've submitted as synonym for .

  • Thanks, I'm just one upvote away from being able to vote on it. Jun 9, 2011 at 16:09
  • Well, I have the votes now, but it looks like one of you guys pushed it through, thanks. Jun 9, 2011 at 16:16
  • @Lance - yeah, it wasn't immediately obvious how to approve it, but I stumbled my way through :) Jun 9, 2011 at 16:17
  • While it shows as a tag-synonym on the openings page. If you try to add it to a question, it doesn't have the (s), and it didn't migrate the tags over, so there are still 11 questions with 'opening'. Jun 22, 2011 at 19:35
  • ok I tried to take care of them all. Since you can't search for a synonymed tag, I can't be sure. Jun 23, 2011 at 20:50
  • @LanceRoberts Its over 3 years since this issue was raised, questions can still have one or both of the tags. Please see if more attention needs to be raised. Feb 4, 2015 at 15:41
  • @ghosts_in_the_code, no, it did get synonymed. Notice that when you search for either you end up with the same number of questions. I found no questions with both tags. Feb 4, 2015 at 15:48
  • @LanceRoberts Then why do I still get an option to use both tags on a new question? Feb 4, 2015 at 16:02
  • @ghosts_in_the_code, there does appear to be a bug, see my larger meta question that I've just posted. Feb 4, 2015 at 16:30
