Some confusion arose while tagging this question. The game in question was called "Dune: The Battle for Arrakis" on Genesis/Mega drive, "Dune II: Battle for Arrakis" on PC in Europe, and purportedly "Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty" on PC elsewhere*. We already have a dune2 tag, and a well meaning community member created a dune-the-battle-for-arrakis tag. Can we get the new tag made into a synonym for the old, please?

* anecdotally, I verified that I have Dune II: Battle for Arrakis in the Chicago suburbs, and my father impulse bought the game because he's a fan of the books. I can't imagine he wandered into a game import shop in the early '90s on a whim.

  • I think I somehow ended up making dune-the-battle-for-arrakis while I was trying to tag the question, but the stackexchange system wouldn't let me post a question with a new tag I just made

    It was confusing at first. Why let me create the tag if I can't use it? Or if I can end up creating the tag, why not let me use it?

Okay so I've gone ahead and done the following:

  • Renamed to for consistency with other tags

Created synonyms for:

This should avoid any confusion in the future, and make it easier for all users to find questions related to the game. Might seem a bit overkill, but according to Wikipedia this game can be referred to by all of these titles, save Dune: The Building of a Dynasty, which I added in for the sake of completion.
