While browsing unpopular tags, I found that the tag delta has no description nor question using it. Some tags without questions are just synonyms, but this one seems to be unused.

Thus, I was wandering what subjects is was meant to. Is it the delta wing (in which case it should be synonym of the delta-wing tag) or delta airline, or something else. Given the ambiguity, the description must be updated (or the tag removed) but to do it I must understand what subject the tag was made for.

  • $\begingroup$ <the tag delta has no description nor question using it.> tags with no questions get automatically deleted by the system. as this tag exists, there must be a question using it, and in fact there is: aviation.stackexchange.com/q/77946/1467 don't know why it would not appear to you $\endgroup$ – Federico Jul 19 '20 at 5:58
  • $\begingroup$ @Federico ho! I didn't see it. For me, when clicking on the tag I have "0 questions with no upvoted or accepted answers ". Thus I should transform the question but I don't know if I must propose a synonym of delta-wing or a bug-report as this question does not appear for me. $\endgroup$ – Manu H Jul 19 '20 at 6:42
  • $\begingroup$ no worries, bugs happen and are not your fault. fell free to both make a bug report and update the question. personally, I would support a synonym request. $\endgroup$ – Federico Jul 19 '20 at 12:24

The tag is currently only used for one question:

This question is clearly about delta wings, which already have a tag . Therefore, I think the question should just be re-tagged accordingly, which will automatically delete the tag.

I don't think a tag synonym delta should be created because of the ambiguity mentioned in your question. delta-wing is much more descriptive and will automatically appear as a tag suggestion when typing "delta" in the tag field, which IMHO eliminates the need for a synonym.

  • $\begingroup$ Seems like it. The original revision was tagged with [delta] and [wingee] (typo). $\endgroup$ – Andrew T. Jul 20 '20 at 17:56
