(125 questions) and (11 questions) seem like synonyms to me, and good candidates for merging.

  • Can we go ahead and merge the tags? – Joe May 11 '18 at 20:31
  • You can do it, considering you're a mod now @Joe ;-) – Martin Tournoij May 18 '18 at 18:02
  • I can, but it wasn't clear to me if the other mods agreed :) – Joe May 18 '18 at 18:03
  • I don't think they'll get a notification from the question comments though ;-) – Martin Tournoij May 18 '18 at 18:04
  • Good point, i'll note in Rory's answer. – Joe May 18 '18 at 18:05

Have had a quick read through examples from both and I'd have to agree. @Erica and @anon - your thoughts? We can easily merge if you agree.

  • I can think of "food" but not "diet" questions, e.g. "allergies, food." But I have no issue with merging. We might want to think through the entire thing at some point: food/diet/nutrition/junkfood/babyfood/etc. There are a number of tags that are vague-ish with a lot of overlap. (Sorry this is so unhelpful.) :-( – anongoodnurse Mar 5 '16 at 1:16
  • I was thinking diet would include allergies... But that's a good point. I'm unsure whether we'd need a baby food tag, as we can just have the two tags 'baby' and 'food' but that might be a helpful search term. Think you're right that we need to have a good look at tags as a whole, sometime – Rory Alsop Mod Mar 5 '16 at 8:45
  • @anongoodnurse and Rory, I can't tell if you two think we should merge them or not... what do you two think? – Joe May 18 '18 at 18:05
