We have three closely related tags on meta: , , and .

We're not talking about a lot of posts here, but from what I could all be handled with a single tag.

Please merge and into and leave synonyms behind.

  • user and users definitely don't need to exist separately, but I could kind of see a reason to keep user-accounts separate for concerns specific to accounts and account management (whereas users could also refer to, e.g., the behavior of a user or something of that sort). I could go either way on that one if others have any thoughts regarding it. Commented Sep 14, 2012 at 23:16
  • I can see that. Cleaning up questions tagged with user-accounts may leave the tag empty, though, which is why I suggested it. For what it's worth, MSO has user-accounts separate from users, although the tag wiki of the latter seems to conflate it with the former. user is a synonym for users.

I merged into and made the former a synonym of the latter. I'm going to leave separate for now and we can revisit it later if needed.
