We've got kind of a set of network-related tags going, each with low question counts:

- Some of these are port forwarding or connection issues, but a fair chunk appear to be about "lag" or "ping"

- A fair bit of these seem to reference "ping"

- A fair bit of these seem to reference "lag"

For the purposes of tags on gaming.se, does it make sense to have these as separate tags? There's perhaps 50 total, and I think if you were searching or trying to tag, they'd all be pretty relevant. I'm aware that lag != ping != latency (although there's some level of overlap) but it seems like having just one "networking" tag might be a better option, given the low frequency of those types of questions.

Would it make sense to make and synonyms for ?

    I think they could be combined. – Raven Dreamer Nov 30 '11 at 20:29
  • ping and lag are now one and the same – badp Nov 30 '11 at 20:46
  • @badp, what of networking? Any interest in consolidating further, or does it just make sense to go back and retag the ping related questions in that category? – agent86 Nov 30 '11 at 21:06
  • @agent86 I need to think about it, hence why I posted it as a comment and didn't mark status completed. – badp Nov 30 '11 at 21:19
  • @badp, acknowledged, roger that, 10-4 good buddy, understood. Gotcha, is what I'm trying to say here. – agent86 Nov 30 '11 at 21:20
