Earlier this week, I created the pi-3b+ tag, which is currently used by 3 questions (including one I just added). However, while doing that I notice someone added a rpi3b+ tag (used by one question). Tag links can be found here.

Is there a consensus on which is or should be the canonical tag name? Note I named mine based on the existing tag names pi-2 pi-3 and pi-b+. One could argue that I should have done pi-3-b+, based on the original pi b+ tag (pi-b+), but that looked too busy.

If there is a consensus, can we retag the questions using the deprecated tag and delete the tag?

  • Anyone care to update the tag info for the pi-models tag? I will use my "currently on mobile" excuse to not do it myself.

I seem to recall we went through this a while back to standardize things such that all the model tags start with pi- then the model, sans b for the 2 and 3 (although I notice has four synonyms already, neither of these has the b suffix as a synonym, so I've suggested that).

So I've merged -> . If anyone is so inclined, please go and approve my suggested synonyms for and so we don't have to go through that later.

    You can approve your own synonyms, from this page if you like, since you're a moderator (Although apparently it won't let you do that from the 'suggest a synonym' page even with a diamond. Odd.) Or you can leave it for the community to vote on, if that's your idea ;)

  • @aurora0001 all community votes on tags should preferably go through meta not via usage patterns alone. As you know ill-chosen tags get still promoted by the system since they are suggested to new users.
