maps is now the master and map is a synonym.

This is done. I ended up performing the following steps: Retagged a few questions that were using unlocking inappropriately Renamed unlocking to sim-unlocking Made sim-locked a synonym of sim-unlocking since it was only used a few times and always in the same context Made screen-unlock and unlock-screen synonyms of lock-screen.

I made mac-os-x the parent of both osx and mac. The latter only had one about MAC addresses (which I retagged) and I don't think we had any questions about pre-OSX Macs.

firmware could relate not just to the system firmware, but - as you already noted - also the radio/wifi/camera/etc. firmware. That prevents me from liking the idea. In the past, if we had an ambiguous tag we specialized the name(s). I would preferably blacklist firmware and introduce system-firmware or device-firmware. See also: My answer on "Merge '...

I am undecided. This are two different things, although there are very few questions. I would let them separated for a while and see how things go.

In favor. Normally I would say different apps. but Angry Birds is Angry Birds. :)

I don't know, whereas screen and display were really just different ways of saying the same thing,and were proper synonyms. These all seem like specific cases where a specific aspect or behaviour is being asked about. I think people are likely to search for "screen timeout" or "screen brightness" so these are useful tags. Though as the one question in ...

Agreed, done.

Since screen-share and screen-sharing are so similar I didn't synonymize, just kept the latter. If you start typing the former, the latter should pop up before you finish. share and sharing should now be empty and should be automatically deleted in 24 hours or so. One related case I found was file-sharing. I'm not sure if this is necessarily a good tag ...

I merged these tags and made wifi-hotspot the master since: It was the more popular of the two It will be included a bit more visibly (as in, not just as a synonym) in the autocomplete this way If we ever need to differentiate between different types of hotspots in the future (unlikely, but I suppose somewhat feasible) then we just need new tags of the form ...

This synonym had actually already been suggested, so I went ahead and approved it (and merged the tags).


3

Sounds good. I like the proposal.

Clearly some of the "tasks" questions need re-tagging. I'm not convinced, though, that "tasks" should be a synonym of "to-do". That Android has "task managers" and "task killers" strongly implies that "tasks" = "running Android processes". It seems that "tasks" is just one of those ambiguous terms we should steer people away from. I suppose that as long as ...

I'd be careful about merging the 'contacts' and 'people'. Isn't the app in HTC Sense called "People"? Also, 2.x and 3.x versions of Android are going to be around (and generating questions) for quite some time yet. I think Matthew Read's suggestion of creating "contacts-app" and "people-app" is a good one, although I don't think I'm in favor of making one ...

I made google-chrome-to-phone the master to be consistent with our other tags.


3

It looked like service was actually mostly used to refer to network issues, i.e., problems with "phone service". I replaced it with connectivity in most places, services where applicable. I think it's probably best to let service die out rather than merge with something else. If it comes up again we should probably rename it to phone-service or something ...


3

Done, I agree with your assessment.


3

Good catch. recovery is now a synonym of recovery-mode.


3

Good catch. Merged and synonym created.


3

Merged and synonymized. Thanks.


3

Synonym created and went ahead and merged freeze-app into disable-app


3

Done, thanks for catching this.

I'd suggest synonymizing web-browser to browser, but removing browsers from all questions that currently have it.. As long as browser exists, and has a decent wiki extract popping up for it (which it does), I don't see why anyone would ever use the longer browsers when the shorter version would have already been suggested by the auto-complete. The only ...

The difference between GSM and CDMA phones is pretty major. I'm not sure that synonymizing them makes sense despite their other similarities.


2

I would agree as the trend is that external SD-Card is being dropped, Sony, HTC, Samsung... list goes on, maybe we are witnessing the end-of-days for those micro-sd readers embedded on a smartphone due to the production costs and that NAND storage is more cheaper to integrate.


2

I agree that they don't need to be distinct. I've merged them into networking. A synonym wouldn't work since "network access" is a subset of "networking".


2

Nooooooo. They are not the same.


2

I don't think so. They're certainly related, but an "ext4" solution will not apply to "ext2" and vice-versa. It just doesn't "feel" right to me.


2

I merged these and made signal the master, since it appears to be the more popular of the two.


2

Done!
