Right now we have , , and tags.

I don't think this is a good approach. No new user is ever going to tag these right, and it's not like a question for a piece name is practically different than a question asking for a piece's element ID. And beyond that, identifications of non-pieces like stickers or entire sets should really be sharing a tag - we use the same resources to answer the question.

If no one objects, I'd like to merge all three of those into the single tag.

    I think @Dori asked a question along the same lines on the chat, but didn't get much answers. I agree on identification, whether people are after the name, element id or design id is basically irrelevant. The only issue I can see is if we also get a lot of set identification requests also, but I doun't we'll get much, and surely not enough to justify creating two tags. – Joubarc Oct 31 '11 at 12:38

    I think merging set identification and part identification requests is a plus. Set identification always starts with part identification so they'll use the same resources and knowledge. – user23 Oct 31 '11 at 12:42

    Agreed, not only is there probably no need to separate both, but there are indeed good reasons to keep them together. – Joubarc Oct 31 '11 at 12:45

    Whatever the choice may be, some tag wikis would help. – Pubby Oct 31 '11 at 13:41
  • @Dori's chat post was: chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/message/2261055#2261055 I also agree we should merge those. Leave piece-information separate as that's more about the history/context of pieces than knowing what they are called/referred to. – Zhaph - Ben Duguid Oct 31 '11 at 14:32
  • Need to get @oezi in here as a user with rights to do this ;) – Zhaph - Ben Duguid Oct 31 '11 at 14:38

    I recall some complaints from another SE about lack of tag merging/renaming - you can set up pre-hoc synonyms, but the only way to really merge is to retag questions by hand. So, I just did that. – user23 Oct 31 '11 at 14:53

    As you say, we still need to get the synonyms in place so that they don't creep back. – Zhaph - Ben Duguid Oct 31 '11 at 15:11
