We favor creating tags for aircraft models (Do we need a tag for each airplane model we mention?).
I typically create tags that include the manufacturer's name (consistent with boeing-747, airbus-a380, etc.). Such recent tag creation (tupolev-tu-204) was deleted in favor of just the model name, for consistency with that manufacturer's existing tags, which I have missed due to the search engine wanting 3+ characters (I only typed "tu"). Existing examples include tu-104 and tu-114.
Note: Old tags can be renamed (Are the moderators able to rename tags for this site?).
Q: What should our policy be moving forward regarding new tags for aircraft models?
- Keep the format that is consistent with what was used, even if that omits the manufacturer?
- Use the manufacturer format regardless of what was used, and request renames for old tags (which should be easy since the moderators would target one manufacturer per request)?
- [Something else.]
