Does the tag cover anything that the tag does not? Many questions that are tagged with [url-format] are also tagged with [url] - unnecessarily I expect ([url] alone would be sufficient).

Therefore, should the [url-format] tag be merged with [url]?

  • FYI you can propose your own tag synonyms. I agree with you, though, and if there are no objections then I'll make url-format a synonym of url.

  • @Christofian: Ah yes, thanks for the reminder. I wasn't sure, however, whether you have the power or preference to merge and delete redundant tags, over and above creating synonyms? Although, I guess synonyms are perhaps the preferred action in this instance?

    @w3d synonyms are the preferred course of action in this instance: there's no need to merge or delete them in this instance.
