# Using acronyms in tags

There are a ton of acronyms is the world of aviation. This could lead to duplicate tags, and some non-acronym tags, and some acronym tags. Before the site goes public [knock on wood] we should decide to exclusivity use acronyms or not.

Ideally there would be a way to have "link" tags, so when someone types in UAV it links to the unmanned-aerial-vehicle tag, similarly FAA to Federal-Aviation-Administration. Is there a way using the current SE software to do this - if not is it a capability we could add?

The general consensus is sometimes we use acronyms, and sometimes we don't (i.e. there's no definitive consensus) -- where we do have a pretty good consensus is that the acronym and its expansion should be synonyms ((e.g. --> ), which is how the Stack Exchange software deals with these sorts of duplicate tags: Typing either ATC or Air-Traffic-Control into the tag box will bring up the master tag.
