Voting arrows look selected when they're not

I'd be in favor of reversing the colors (make "unselected" arrows dark & "selected" ones light) - I think that would make the difference more intuitive and the unvoted arrows less obtrusive - ...

"faa-wings" tag

It's hard to say if it's useful or not: it only has two questions today but that doesn't mean we won't get more in the future. I think we should leave it there, but rename it to faa-wings-program. ...

What should we do with the "737 Max high speed stall" question?

It is my opinion that this whole question, and speculative answer, should be deleted. It is accident speculation of the worst kind.

Do we need the [gnss-gps] tag?

I agree, furthermore I'd recommend renaming the gps tag to the generic gnss, to cover the rest of the constellations. By 2020 the total number of GNSS systems should be 4: GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, and ...

Why do you have to have votes on a tag before you can suggest a synonym?

The general idea is that if you don't have at least 5 up-votes in a tag you probably don't have enough domain-specific knowledge to be suggesting synonyms. A good question (or answer) can easily ...

Merge [boeing-747-8] → [boeing-747]?

It was discussed that we do not need variant-specific tags of aircraft models here. Unless there is a change in consensus, I support the tag merge.

Do we need a separate [airbus-a319] tag?

I just (unilaterally, sorry) created synonyms. airbus-a321 and airbus-a319 now point to airbus-a320. They're the same type, and there's no value in doing the same thing for, say, 737-700.

What the loading tag refers to?

My feeling is that a loading tag isn't very useful because it's ambiguous, as your question says, and it's only used for 3 questions today anyway. Instead, I'd suggest using aircraft-limitations (or ...

Should the "incident" or the "accidents" tag be renamed?

My gut feeling says that both terms should be in their plural form, as the tag will list questions related to accidents or incidents and not a single incident or accident.
