@Penguin asked this question on the meta and I answered it, where I specified this:

But should we burninate in favor of ? It would depend on the community, to be honest.

Then @Wondercricket commented thinking about making a synonym to , since they're the same topic, but the other is in Minecraft.

It doesn't have to be burninated, but it can be turned into 's tag synonym because it seems like having 2 tags of the same topic can just be merged into 1.

So in your opinion, should we make a tag synonym of ?

    I also did say that Minecraft is out of my area of expertise, so I merely gave my 2 cents for another option :) Those who are familiar in the realm of Minecraft would probably have a better say in the matter Feb 5 '21 at 3:13
  • How does making tags synonyms work? Could you still filter the Minecraft posts if we made them synonyms? Personally, I feel there should still be a distinction for Minecraft mods since there are so many. In my opinion, this is an important point. That whole question ad answer line is a good point to start at.

  • @Potterton, making a tag a synonym means that any time someone uses the tag minecraft-mods, it would be changed to mods instead, and all current questions with minecraft-mods tag would instead have mods tag now

  • @Dragonrage That makes sense, but could someone like me filter the minecraft-mods out of the mods tag once they are synonyms? I don't think we should make them synonyms unless we could do that?

  • @Potterton as far as I know, you wouldn’t be able to do that, no

  • @Penguin No worries! The only issue with that is the fact that not all askers put the Java Edition tag (as evident from the discussion here with commands meta.arqade.com/q/15612/264353 ) So what would we do there?
