I recently noticed some questions were tagged kvl (#1, #2), so I retagged them using the correct kirchhoffs-laws. There are currently 25 questions tagged kvl, and "KVL" is a common acronym so it seems appropriate to make the acronym tag a synonym of the tag that has the full name, a wiki, etc. There are currently no questions tagged kcl but it might be a good idea to make that a synonym as well. Would a moderator kindly merge the tags and make the synonym(s)?
I don't think these abbreviations are that common or helpful, so in this specific case it might be better to just drop the confusing abbreviations entirely and replace them with either kirchoffs-laws or make a new tag called kirchoffs-voltage-law.
Generally speaking, any user with sufficient rep can propose that tags are to be made synonymous, though the feature is well-hidden.
- Click on the tag such as kirchoffs-laws which takes you here: https://electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/kirchhoffs-laws.
- Click on "Learn More" which opens up the "tag wiki" (which is awful in this specific case and could do with some improvements).
- On the right side, scroll down to the bottom where you find the link suggest tag synonym ».
- If I remember correctly, users with sufficient participation in the kirchoffs-laws tag can now vote if they agree or disagree. It's good to create a meta post whenever you do a synonym request in order to draw attention to it.
This is a low traffic tag though, so I'm not sure how well this will end up. We might need mod help in the end after all...
