Some of these I could probably do myself, but I figure I've already cluttered the front page enough today.

  1. Rename (55) to , it's more formal
  2. Rename (59) to (0: doesn't exist yet), make (34) a synonym
  3. Make (57) a synonym of (240)
    • maybe (101) as well, but the tag excerpt for that also includes cap charging, and I just retagged a question as such...
  4. Make either (34) or (92) point to the other (the former maybe).
  5. Make (26) (24) and (9) synonyms of (0)
  • \$\begingroup\$ I have cleaned up all the tags aside from the lipo, which I think is OK for now. \$\endgroup\$ – W5VO Dec 16 '13 at 16:30

I plan on merging/synonym , , into a new tag . This preserves the spirit of clarifying acronyms while catching all (hopefully) alternate usages.

I plan on merging and , with the intent that the resulting tag cover normal residential power delivery and wiring from the output of the last utility-owned transformer to the circuitry that directly interacts with the power line for the purpose of supplying power. I propose using the as the master tag as I don't see the benefit from changing it to .

Questions looking to use the house wiring for communication should be tagged

Questions currently tagged should be manually retagged to either for power grid topics, or / as appropriate.

Questions tagged have significant overlap with and propose merging and synonym the two into .

I know I've thrown a lot together here. If you have specific objections, please comment.

I'd make lithium-polymer a synonym at best. While more formal, lipo is wildly used like nimh or nicad or usb or any acronym/abbreviation.

    \$\begingroup\$ The nice part about a synonym though is that someone can type one and get the other. Do you think anyone would see lithium-polymer who not understand what was meant but would understand lipo? \$\endgroup\$ – Kortuk Oct 17 '13 at 14:16

    \$\begingroup\$ Some abbreviations are OK, but even then you have to at least spell them correctly. I probably wouldn't immediately recognize "nimh" or "nicad" unless they were spelled "NiMH" and "NiCd". Details matter, especially on a international list where you're already on thin ice with abbreviations. \$\endgroup\$ – Olin Lathrop Oct 18 '13 at 12:13
