Should we make the crash-investigation tag a synonym for accident-investigation?

Personally, I would say yes. I don't see any benefit on having the two separate tags.

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.

Should "flight-dynamics" be a synonym of "aircraft-physics"?

Personally, I think that flight-dynamics is a subset of aircraft physics, not a synonym, so I don't think the tags should be merged.

Usage of "electrics" tag

Right now I don't see anything with electrics that I think merits the existence of the tag. Everything in there should really be tagged with something more useful (like avionics, instruments, ...

Should "trim" and "trim-tab" tags be merged?

I think [trim] needs a new description Not all aircraft use tabs for trim -- some use other devices instead, and the [trim] tag should cover all means of trim, not just trim tabs.

I've added the synonym. crash-investigation now maps to accident-investigation.

The tags [radio] and [radio-communications] should be synonymized or clarified

To me they are different and the radio tag info should be modified/updated. Looking at the questions using the tags it seems that also for the community the two ...

Can we merge [icao-recommendations] into [icao-sarps] and make it a synonym?

Edit 3/11/21 : This has now been implemented. There are two primary reasons why I think icao-sarps should be the preferred tag and icao-recommendations should be a synonym to it, rather than the ...

Should there be a new tag for Airman Certification Standards?

I don't think we need a tag specifically for the ACS: The PTS previously defined the standards for airman certification by the FAA (or more accurately, how you were tested to ensure you met those ...

Rename request for FAR tags

Quite honestly, I think far-91 and the like are perfectly fine. There's no risk of someone seeing "FAR" and thinking that we're talking about the Federal Acquisitions Regulations. Even if the FAA no ...

Should [iaps] be renamed [instrument-approaches]?

I agree that iaps is not a great name. It does not show up as a suggestion when starting to type instrument... or approach... into the tag field, so people have a hard time finding it. It therefore at ...

Should 'sound' tag be a synonym of 'noise'?

Personally I don't see the need. They currently are not confused or misused, and making them synonym would remove flexibility.

Synonym [maintenance] -> [aircraft-maintenance]

I think aircraft-maintenance should be the main tag - here's why: We already have a lot of [aircraft-*] tags. Albeit 1 or 2 could do with burninating.

Merge and rename: [airman-certification] and [licence]

Rename request for FAR tags

If we do change them, I'd prefer something more succinct like 14-cfr-xxx. This is already the normal way to cite parts of the CFR (e.g. "14 CFR 121," "14 CFR 91," etc.) The word "part" is normally ...
