we must also have an option to merge Tags - as there can be 100's of tags which are all synonyms or even Related closely. eg: #cache, #caching, #memcached, #SpeedUp etc. they all mean the same as they are all related.

I thought about this a lot and here is my proposal-

  • Let Site Admins Create and set a pool of tags. IMO, Its a good idea to Setup and finalize tags only after the site has got sufficient traction and community.

  • How to handle Related and Synonyms Tags? Instead of giving admins to create options for merging; let's keep options for users TO combine and merge tags in some way, which they feel are synonyms and related tags. Let's not forget, Each user has his own version of Related or synonym.

And So this gives lots of flexibility for all users. Win-Win for all !
