What should we do?

 - Keep: [tag:nxt] and [tag:rcx];    Unusable/'Reserved': [tag:mindstorms]


 - Keep: [tag:mindstorms];           Tag synonyms:        [tag:nxt] and [tag:rcx]

In other words, should we 'combine' and into ?

I think RCX and NXT are two sufficiently apart technologies that they will each require its specific tag, so I really don't like having and being synonyms for .

However, there might be questions which aren't so much about a specific Mindstorms kit but rather about robotic design in a more general sense. If these questions happen, taging them with or will be ill-suited, while might be better — although there maybe would be best (let's not forget Spybotics :-).

My own suggestion is to keep all three tags for the moment, but specify in the wiki that if the question is specific to the NXT or RCX, then the appropriate tags should be used.

But really, I think we don't have a sufficient vision of what questions will arise to make that kind of decision now. Then again, I'm tagnostic, so my advise isn't worth squat here.

  • I've removed my votes on the NXT/RCX synonyms and adjusted the Wiki body to include a note about using the technology specific tags. Nov 15 '11 at 9:21

    The way you did it is exactly what I had in mind
