We have two tags that appear to mean the same thing:

Making one of these a tag synonym of the other seems like a no-brainer to me. Which tag should be the master?

Alternatively, we could create and make both the others point to it, since "site" and "website" seem pretty redundant here.

I agree that "site" and "website" are redundant, unless there's something besides a website that could be deployed and would generate an on-topic question here.

I would support both of them being merged into a new tag.

    The "something besides a website that could be deployed and would generate an on-topic question here" is what I've been chewing on and I can't come up with anything.

  • gopher and/or gemini could be considered on topic or not. But are they then websites or sites? Is "web" attached to HTTP specially? Mar 17 at 18:35
  • Or IPFS - interplanetary filesystem also dubbed as "Distributed web" but then deployment there might be difficult to define precisely as it is peer to peer by design. Mar 17 at 18:37
  • @PatrickMevzek Those are thoughtful examples. My opinion is that Gopher/Gemini/IPFS are web-like enough that a single deployment tag would work well as a catch-all, especially when a post is paired with additional disambiguating tags. Mar 17 at 19:31
