I've just discovered we've got another pair of obviously very similar or even duplicate tags:
- volume (×30): "For questions related to volume control (audio). Do not confuse it with disk volumes."
- volume-control (×100): "Questions that deal with the volume control of Android devices; either using the hardware controls (Volume Keys) or software controls (Apps and widgets)."
On a first glance, and arguing by their tag excerpt, they serve the very same purpose – so I was about to suggest a merge.
A second look however reveals a tiny difference:
volume seems to focus more on "hardware" (in the sense of "breaking limits": getting the max out of it by overcoming "safety locks"), while
volume-control is rather mixed (normalisation, auto-adjusts, how to adjust several channels separately, etc.). Which brings up a second option: let us have both, but clearly pointing out in the tag excerpts/wikis which is which (including a "cleanup/re-tag" on existing questions).
Which way to go? Voters for the second option: How to best describe the tags in this case, to make the difference clear (guess only
volume would need its excerpt updated then)?
