I manually changed the only two instances of into ; it should also be merged with . I'm not sure which one has to be kept.

    (Also, the syntax [tag:usa] works in Meta posts. I suggest using it for tag requests if possible.) – mmyers Feb 3 '12 at 16:21
  • I agree with the idea of using "usa" instead of "us", but not in merging "usa" with "united-states". It may be more appropriate to use "usa" as a synonim for "united-states". – Steven Drennon Feb 10 '12 at 12:41
  • @StevenDrennon: please notice someone already did that (dunno if by hand or script or what), that's why I flagged for adding status-completed ;) – o0'. Feb 10 '12 at 13:54
  • Ahhh! I hadn't checked that. Still not sure that I agree. – Steven Drennon Feb 10 '12 at 15:01
  • Since I use either interchangably, what would be the most general one that is understandable? usa or united-states? – MichaelF Feb 10 '12 at 15:51
  • @MichaelF: if we use usa then it would make sense to use also all other abbreviations, such as uk. But I feel it is better to be verbose and much more clear, so I'd go for united-states and united-kingdom. – o0'. Feb 10 '12 at 15:52
  • @Lohoris Works for me...means we'll also have to change England or Britain as well, since those two seem to be in use as well. – MichaelF Feb 10 '12 at 15:56

    @MichaelF: well, technically England is not the same thing, I'd keep that separate. (Great) Britain isn't the same thing either, but I guess it's similar enough to be awarded a merge. – o0'. Feb 10 '12 at 17:02

    US and USA merge is done and updated...oh what fun. – MichaelF Feb 13 '12 at 12:57
