While we don't have many questions yet about these tags (or any for the Series S right now), it seems other sources (take Wikipedia for example) put the Xbox Series X and Series S together, rather than having a dedicated page for each.

As far as I know, the main differences between a Series X and Series S is that the Series S has slightly less powerful hardware, and costs less (which isn't really relevant for our purposes).

Thus, should we make a synonym for the or should they have their own tag each? Should questions be specifically tagged with only one of these?

    Another option is do xbox-series-xs (which is mentioned in the wiki and is used when talking about both), and then make both xbox-series-x and xbox-series-s synonyms Commented Dec 28, 2020 at 17:29

    I think that the Series S and Series X problem is the same as the 2DS and 3DS, and should be handled the same way (single tag with individual consoles as synonyms).

I personally agree with the comments - we should have a as the main tag, and have and as synonymns. This would work in the same way (and for the same reasons) as the tag .

Looks like the mods are going to have to do this one. You can't suggest synonyms unless the tags have at least 5 questions; you can't tag questions with or , because they are too similar to to be created in the first place.

Currently, we have , and I was unable to more appropriately tag a question because the two tags are too similar. I am also unable to suggests synonyms.

only has 4 associated with it; feels like we should decide and implement the changes before there are more.

    I think we would need a moderator to merge the tags for us and create any synonyms, as you need to meet the awkward synonym requirement to be able to make any.
